Waseda=Countless opportunities / Waseda=innumerables oportunidades

Hello there! Congratulations on being accepted to Waseda University.

 

This is T.I., currently performing as a Student Staff Leader (SSL) at the International Community Center of Waseda University.

 

As your first classes start, you might have realized that you’ve just entered a world filled with countless opportunities. Having the freedom to learn from top-tier faculty, to exchange opinions with fellow students coming from across the globe and Japan, or to immerse yourself in the limitless number of circles and clubs, are just a few of the chances that will be offered to you upon entry to Waseda.

 

The International Community Center (ICC) at Waseda University is one of those. Currently, there are about 5000 international students enrolled in Waseda; number encompassing almost 10% of the total student population. The ICC was established 10 years ago in order to make use of this vibrant diverse environment, and further enrich on and off-campus cross-cultural exchange. I personally encourage you to make the most of your student life by actively engaging in the ICC’s activities as a participant or as a supporting volunteer.

 

My career at the ICC started like that: from a supporting volunteer to becoming a SSL today. Even though it has only been a year since my connection with ICC started, I have personally gained a lot. I have especially learned how to appreciate diversity in terms of internationalization and globalization—both of which have nothing but opportunities for current and future endeavors for everyone.

 

Besides being academically challenged, it is up to you to decide whether you want to partake in extracurricular activities that will shape and polish you as an individual. I encourage you to challenge yourself to opportunities that will provide you with tools that will help you grow. ICC plays a paramount role at Waseda and I invite you to come and join us in our activities! The choice to take this opportunity or not is up to you! 

Hola! Felicitaciones por haber sido admitido a Waseda University.

 

Te saluda T.I., actual Staff Student Staff Leader (SSL) en el International Community Center de Waseda University.

 

A medida que pase tu primer semestre, te habrás dado cuenta de que haz entrado a un mundo cargado de innumerables oportunidades. Tener la libertad de aprender de la mano de profesores renombrados, de intercambiar opiniones con estudiantes provenientes del mundo y Japón, o de sumergirte en el ilimitado número de circles y clubs, son solo algunas de las pocas chances que te serán ofrecidas al entrar a Waseda.

 

El International Community Center (ICC) de Waseda University es una de esas. Actualmente, hay casi 5000 estudiantes internacionales matriculados en Waseda, número abarcando cerca del 10% de la población estudiantil total. Para hacer uso y maximizar este ambiente de semejante naturaleza vibrante, y enriquecer el intercambio intercultural dentro del campus más a fondo, el ICC fue establecido 10 años atrás. Yo personalmente, te aliento a que vivas tu vida de estudiante al máximo participando activamente de las actividades del ICC como participante o voluntario coordinador..

 

Mi carrera en ICC ha empezado así mismo: como un voluntario coordinador, hasta convertime en un SSL hoy día. Aunque ha sólamente sido un año desde que mi conexión con ICC ha empezado, yo personalmente aprendí mucho más de lo esperado. Aprendí a cómo saber apreciar diversidad en términos de internacionalización y globalización—ambos, fenómenos completamente cargados con meras oportunidades para futuros y presentes emprendimientos para todos.

 

Aparte de estar siendo desafiado académicamente, depende de tí decidir si quieres participar en actividades extracurriculares que te moldearán y pulirán como persona. Yo te animo a que te desafíes a actividades que te proveerán herramientas que te ayudarán a crecer. El ICC juega un rol importante en Waseda y te invito a que te unas a nuestras actividades. La decisión de tomar esta esta oportunidad o no depende de tí! 
