Kansai University, with the support of the Kansai University Tokyo Keizaijin Club, an exchange organization for alumni who work or live in the Tokyo metropolitan area, welcomes graduates who have arrived in the Tokyo metropolitan area as new members of society since April. A “welcome party for new members of society” was held at the Tokyo Center for two days, April 26th (Friday) and 27th (Saturday).

・Graduates who became new members of society in April are warmly welcomed by seniors and Tokyo Center staff.
・Kansai University has produced more than 500,000 graduates. Creating a network in Tokyo that transcends generations and industries ・You can only feel the bond with your alma mater after graduating. Piping hot “takoyaki” will soothe your soul!
As many companies are headquartered in Tokyo, the problem of a “job hunting gap” between local universities and metropolitan universities has been pointed out.The Kansai University Tokyo Center is working to provide support to students looking for jobs in the metropolitan area and graduates living in the metropolitan area. We are working hard to support. The “Welcome Party for New Employees” is a support event that began with the desire to continue growing in the metropolitan area, far away from campus, with a strong network and love for the alma mater. This is one of the center’s regular events. This Osaka-style welcome party, which deepens alumni bonds while grilling takoyaki, is a chance for participants to have chance encounters between students from the same faculty or graduate school, and get excited about stories from their student days and new employee training. A new network was born.
≪Voices from participants≫
◎Moe Fujiwara (Graduated from the Faculty of Foreign Studies in 2024/Works at a stationery manufacturer) “While eating takoyaki and yakisoba with everyone who started their new working lives in Tokyo in April, I spoke with all my might in Kansai dialect. It was a really fun time.”
◎Yusuke Sakabe (Graduated from the Graduate School of Science and Engineering in 2024/NEC Corporation) “I was very happy to hear that the ingredients and drinks were kindly provided by my seniors who are active in Tokyo. I felt the depth!”
This event is supported by the Kansai University Tokyo Keizaijin Club, an exchange organization for alumni who work or live in the Tokyo metropolitan area. Chairman Takeshi Otsu (Chairman of JLL Retail Management Co., Ltd./Director of the Japan Shopping Center Association and Chairman of the National Conference Executive Committee) said, “I came to Kansai University when I was confused by the organizational and cultural differences between students and working adults, and from Kansai to Kanto. I hope that the bonds between them will serve as a source of support, and that this gathering will be an opportunity for them to transcend the boundaries of their companies, gain diverse encounters, and grow.”
■About Tokyo Center
Established in 2003 as Kansai University’s base in the Tokyo metropolitan area. The facility not only functions as a place for exchanging information with companies and government offices in the Tokyo metropolitan area, but also as a place for academic activities, and is used by approximately 10,000 people a year, including students including job hunters, graduates, and the general public. Taking advantage of the convenience of being located next to Tokyo Station, we will focus on providing generous support to job-hunting students and interacting with students and alumni.
