Alumni Network Message from Alumni Association

E-Newsletter for International Students

I hope that this message finds all of our Faculty of Policy Studies alumni well. My name is Kazuyo Yamaguchi. I am in charge of Japanese language studies within our Faculty.

Twenty years have passed since our Faculty was established in April 2000, so during this coming academic year we intend to hold a range of commemorative events. Casting our minds back over the years that seem to have flown by, I imagine that you would have entered Nanzan University with a mixture of excited anticipation and uneasy trepidation.

There have been many changes during these past twenty years, but without a doubt, the most significant of these was the Faculty's move to the Nagoya Campus in 2017. I think that all of you have spent your time with us as a student on the Seto Campus, possibly even seeing badgers walking through the campus grounds around sunset or deer grazing among the trees. While it was not a common occurrence, there were even times when classes were cancelled due to a bear appearing on campus. I have fond memories of the time I spent in such a beautiful natural setting. The Nagoya Campus is also located in a pleasantly verdant setting, but it is a little different from the unhurried atmosphere out at Seto.

The relocation to the Nagoya Campus has brought about a range of changes in the environment in which students lead their lives. In contrast to Koryu Kaikan life at Seto, in Nagoya, students live in a large housing complex among regular members of the public, so the potential breadth of their experience is broader. The range of countries and regions from which students come is greater and the total number of students has also increased. In addition, our international students now study all sorts of subjects together with students from other faculties. The range of study opportunities is greater, as is the scope for involvement in extra-curricular activities or groups, which in turn enhances the opportunities available to interact with local Japanese students. In this respect, while students are able to lead a more fulfilled life on the Nagoya Campus, their lives have become busier, and to some extent, the slower and more relaxed atmosphere previously experienced at Seto has become a thing of the past.

There are probably those among you who cannot quite picture the Faculty of Policy Studies being on the Nagoya Campus, but the teachers you know are now comfortably based in research rooms on the 5th and 6th floors of Building Q. With the new academic year featuring events marking the twentieth anniversary of the establishment of our Faculty, we hope that you will be able to visit us and say hello to your former teachers.

I sincerely hope that 2020 brings you all good health and good fortune.

総合政策學部の卒業生のみなさん、お元気ですか。
総合政策學部の日本語科目を擔當している山口和代です。

2000年4月の學部創設から早いもので20年が経ち、総合政策學部は2020年度に20周年記念のイベントを行います。光陰矢の如しを実感するこの頃ですが、みなさんが南山大學へ入學されたときの期待と不安はどのようなものだったでしょうか。

この20年の間には様々な変化がありましたが、なんといっても大きな出來事は2017年度の名古屋キャンパスへの移転でした。みなさんは瀬戸キャンパスで學生生活を過ごされたと思いますので、日が落ちた頃にタヌキが構內を橫切るところやシカが茂みの中にいるのに遭遇した人もいるかもしれません。まれなことでしたが、クマが出沒し、休講になったこともありました。豊かな自然の中で過ごした日々が懐かしく思い出されます。名古屋キャンパスも豊かな緑に囲まれていますが、のんびりした雰囲気を持つ瀬戸とは少し違ったものがあります。

名古屋キャンパスに來てからは、學生の生活環境にも様々な変化がありました。瀬戸の交流會館での生活とは違い、名古屋では大きな団地で、住人の方たちの中で暮らし、様々な経験をしています。留學生の出身地も新たな國や地域が加わり、人數も増えています。また、留學生はキャンパスで、他學部の學生と様々な授業で共に學んでいます。勉強の機會に関しては、選択の幅が広がりましたし、部活動やサークルなど課外活動の機會も増え、日本人學生と交流する機會もさらに増えています。そう考えると、學生生活をより充実したものにする環境に恵まれているといえますが、ますます忙しくなり、のんびりした雰囲気が少しなくなった感もあります。

みなさんの中には、名古屋キャンパスにはなかなか馴染みがないと感じる方も多いでしょうね。ですが、みなさんが知っている総合政策學部の先生たちは名古屋キャンパスのQ棟の5階と6階の研究室にいます。來年の20周年記念イベントを機に、ぜひ名古屋キャンパスを訪れ、先生たちの研究室を訪ねてみてください。みなさんの來訪を心待ちにしています。

では、みなさんのご健康とますますのご活躍をお祈りしています。
