Homecoming Day

Homecoming Day is a university-wide event for all alumni to get together again on the Hongo and Komaba Campuses. Since its launch in 2002, it has offered opportunites for alumni to reconfirm their ties with fellow alumni and also with the University. Main programs include the Special Forum held under a specific theme, and anniversary gatherings, namely for the anniversary-year reunions. Associations including overseas alumni associations also participate, presenting a variety of events.
