Japanese Students Welcome Reception and Picnic

Community reception and picnic sponsored by the Kearney Area Chamber of Commerce University Relations Committee to welcome UNK’s new Japanese students to the Kearney community. The students have come through a National Collegiate Network (NCN) program. NCN brings Japanese high school graduates to the United States to study in a four-year bachelor degree program under the supervision of Japanese-speaking counselors. The new students are able to read English. They are taking 12 weeks of intensive English classes this summer before beginning regular classes in the fall.
