Purpose :

The Japanese Student Association is a student organization founded at Eastern Michigan University to aid Japanese students studying at Eastern with learning American culture, while at the same time having them teach their culture to Americans studying Japanese. The JSA was formed in 1987, the same year the Japanese Language Program began, both under Prof. Shohei Koike. Now, the JSA has grown into a large organization with 40+ members. The JSA holds monthly events such as Halloween Parties, Barbecues and Movies to provide opportunities for Japanese and American students to interact socially. Coffee Hour is the JSA's weekly event that gives the students a place to study Japanese or for Americans to assist Japanese students with their homework. The JSA is a way to experience new cultures for many students and is also a great supplement to EMU's Japanese courses.

Special Events/Activities:
Every Year Event - Welcome Party (September), and Dinner Show (usually around Jan-Mar) We are also doing monthly events, such as Halloween Party, movie night etc.
We always meet every Wednesday at the Student Center (Rm 320) for Coffee Hour. The students who are interested learning Japanese or who takes Japanese classes will come and get some help with their homework. We have exchange students from Japan every year, so it will be great time to learn and make friends during coffee hour.
