Keio University Shonan Fujisawa Campus (SFC) held an Online GIGA Freshmen Session on Tuesday, September 21st for new GIGA students of the Faculty of Policy Management and Faculty of Environment and Information Studies. We used two different types of web-conferencing software; Gather.Town and Zoom. New students enjoyed exploring the virtual SFC using Gather.Town and joined some workshops via Zoom. It gave them a good opportunity to learn about SFC and to meet the professors, senior students, and their classmates.
Voices from GIGA students after the event.
- It was a great experience. I was able to meet some of the fellow freshmen who I was unable to meet before. I was also able to talk to some of the staff and some professors, which was very informative. It was a lot of fun and it met my expectation
- The Gather town part was very surprising and interesting to me. In Zoom, the professor and the AIS student gave me a lot of advice on choosing courses which were really helpful. And these events were provided fairly
- The event brought the students who are in Japan and tohse not in Japan together.
