Department Holds 2005 Spring Festival
Annual Reception Honors Outstanding Students
Posted: April 1, 2005
Among the awards presented were those for the Korean Essay Contest, Outstanding student in Japan Studies, Outstanding Japanese language student, academic-year and summer 2005 Foreign Language and Area Studies Fellowships, Continuing Fellowships, and more. The Festival is always well-attended, and this year proved no exception to that as more than 50 people gathered to socialize and enjoy the excellent Asian refreshments.
The festival was begun six years ago as a way to both recognize outstanding performances in departmental language and area studies courses, and also as a way to attract majors. It is one of the highlights of the year and generally draws large crowds.
