Hanami (Cherry blossom Viewing) It’s the first event of the year. Unfortunately, it rained this year but we saw cherry blossoms inside from Sapporo Beer Garden.
The seniors this year are all very pleasant. Just look at their smiling faces

The Materials Dept. Baseball Tournament We won the tournament last year, but with the homerun slugger no longer with us, we lost in the first match.
But we comforted each other by saying that we do better at soccer this year.

Barbecue This is (supposed to be) a barbecue to encourage the students taking the graduate school entrance exam. It’s been held around this season for the past two years. Then, the seniors go into a post-exam vacation. This is a fun time of the year for me personally since I enjoy doing barbecue in my private time. Barbecue
Open Campus For two days, we give a tour to the people who visit the campus. It was impressive to see the seniors giving tours in a very polite and enthusiastic manner. Open Campus Open Campus

Imoni (potato and meat soup that is traditional in the Tohoku region. It's famous as an outdoor food in the fall. Making imoni around a fire near a river in groups is called imoni-kai, or imoni get together) We of course have imoni-kai. We look forward to it so much that we go out and have a drink the day before. Imoni Imoni
Sanma (pacific saury) Party We go out and buy a bunch of sanma and cook them. Yum! It's getting chilly outside, but we do it to enjoy sanma! Sanma (pacific saury) Party Sanma (pacific saury) Party
Ekiden (Long distance road relay) Last year was our third consecutive year in getting first place. We went for the fourth this year, but since we had fewer members, we got 10th place. It goes to show how great our seniors were in the past. Ekiden
Mid-Term Presentation The fourth year undergraduate students give a presentation of their research results in English. They don't have very many opportunities to do public speaking in English, so they carefully check their pronunciations and memorize their scripts. It's hard work, but there's a great sense of accomplishment when it's over! Mid-Term Presentation Mid-Term Presentation Mid-Term Presentation
