This overnight trip to facilities near Mt Fuji is held for incoming students at the beginning of every semester. Professors and upper-level students representing all the academic programs offered in the Faculty also attend. At the orientation camp, students are given an overview of the four-year curriculum and learn the results of their placement exams for the language courses they will take in their first year. Students can also receive advice on majors and courses of study from professors and upper-level students. The orientation camp provides an opportunity for new students to get to know each other as well as make connections with Faculty members and current students.
