Home for the Holidays: Alumni Online Talk Session

2020 has been a difficult and often stressful year for many of us due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As we approach the holiday season, we'd like to invite our alumni from all around the world to come home for a virtual evening with the Tohoku University family.

In this online get-together, four alumni will share their experiences of the pandemic in their countries, the impact it has had on their work and lifestyles, and how they are coping. They will also talk about their careers since graduation, and answer questions.

All participants will have the opportunity to interact with the speakers, with each other, and with current members of the university who will be on hand to share updates about life in Sendai and on campus.

This event is open to all past and present students, researchers and faculty members of Tohoku University. Please register using the link below.
