To welcome new students to the Tohoku University family, the 2022 Entrance Ceremony will be held in-person on April 6 at Kamei Arena.
There will be two short ceremonies on that day - one for all first year undergraduates, and the other for first year graduate students.
Only students directly involved in the two ceremonies will be allowed into the arena. To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and ensure safe physical distancing at the ceremony, family and friends may not attend, but are encouraged to watch the live broadcast from home instead.
The university also asks that family and friends refrain from waiting around the arena or in the adjacent Tomizawa Park.
