Study Abroad hosting Japanese table every Tuesday

Learn basic conversational Japanese, simple origami, and perhaps how to make an "onigiri" rice ball and obento at Study Abroad's Japanese language table. Japanese exchange students at AUM will be at the table every Tuesday from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m on the first floor of Young Tower. This is a great way to make new friends, learn a new language, and perhaps prepare to participate in AUM's exchange program with the University of Shiga in Japan. Visit Study Abroad on Facebook for more details.
