Japanese student clubs and groups
Japanese Conversation and Culture Club
The Japanese Conversation and Culture club (JCC) brings together native Japanese speakers and students of Japanese for weekly language practice in Japanese and English and periodic social events. Weekly meetings include group and/or pair language exchange, games and lessons on various language topics such as expressions or kanji, and special holiday gatherings. Social events may include karaoke, trips to Japanese restaurants, rafting, hiking, barbecue parties, and much more.
Japanese Literacy Club
The Japanese Literacy Club is a student-run initiative to connect students to Japanese culture through literary and other cultural works. We want to introduce both pure Japanese texts as well as books by Japanese authors translated into English. Anyone interested in discovering Japanese literary practices, or simply want to explore Japan's culture and traditions are welcome to join.
