Entrance Ceremony for New Second-Year Students AY2021 (For Students Admitted in AY2020)

To all students admitted in Academic Year 2020:

Toyo University will be holding a one-year-belated entrance ceremony on April 6, 2021 at Nippon Budokan for all students admitted in Academic Year 2020.
The novel coronavirus pandemic compelled us to cancel last year’s entrance ceremony, obliged you to take non-face-to-face classes and imposed many other serious restrictions on your day-to-day lives. Nevertheless, you endured these trials and continued your studies throughout the past year. In recognition of your efforts, we would like to offer you our belated but heartfelt congratulations on your admission to university and advancement into your second year, and to wish you fruitful learning experiences from here on out. We look forward to seeing you at Nippon Budokan.
Because of the ongoing pandemic, we will be limiting admission to the ceremony to students moving into their second year in AY2021, and we ask your understanding of the need to do so to ensure the safety and security of everyone involved.
The ceremony will be live-streamed online (via YouTube) so that it can be viewed on personal computers, smartphones, etc. The URL for this stream will be posted on the University’s website.
