Dear Students,

Welcome back. I hope your classes are starting well this spring semester. As you know, nearly all classes are being held online.  However, both the Academic and EAP programs will be offering limited – and completely voluntary – in-person options for the time being.

The Academic Program will again be offering a limited number of in-person classes on Mondays, beginning January 18th. These classes, include language classes such as Chinese, Japanese and Spanish, and Public Speaking, offer students the option to attend in-person or online, so students may choose their option each week.

The EAP program will again offer in-person workshops one day per week with Mr. Cline, beginning next week.  The day of the week will depend on the EAP level in which the students are enrolled, so please confirm your date with your instructors.

Unfortunately, as you know the Covid pandemic is still with us, and we may have to make alterations in live classes if the conditions require it. Please do not attend these classes if you feel ill or may be a risk to someone in your household.

It is important for students to notify the Student Affairs office if they have tested positive, or if they have been in close proximity to someone who tested positive. To safeguard other students, faculty and especially staff, it is important that we receive any information and updates you are able to provide.

Before attending a live class, please take your temperature and choose the least crowded means of traveling to the campus.  If you show signs of any common symptom, such as a fever, loss of taste or smell, or fatigue, please stay home and participate in your classes online.

The Japanese government is expected to issue additional guidelines soon. At this point, we do not expect them to affect educational institutions like ours, but we must be prepared. Any decision or change to the class format and/or campus hours will be shared with students via the LUJ blog and direct email to your LUJ accounts. Please make sure to check for these updates daily and stay in touch with the university.

Your health and well-being are our top concern, and we ask everyone to please stay safe and use caution when you are outside your home, especially when traveling.

Keep us updated on any issues you may have with the Corona Virus, and even remotely, please remember we at LUJ are here to offer as much support as possible as you continue your studies. Our LUJ students, staff, and faculty have done such an amazing job staying together and working through these unique challenges; we are so proud of your efforts and look forward to another successful semester and year.




教養課程は1月18日より、月曜日に実施する一部のクラスにおいて対面授業を行います。対面授業を実施するクラスは、Chinese, Japanese, Spanish、そしてPublic Speakingなどの語学に関わる授業となっており、対面で参加するかオンラインで参加するかを週ごとに学生が選択できる仕組みになっています。





日本政府は、近いうちに追加のガイドラインを発表する予定です。本校のような教育機関に影響を与えるようなガイドラインではないと現時点では見込んでいますが、私たちは常にいかなることにも対応できるように準備をしておく必要があります。今後、クラスの形式やキャンパスの開館時間に何かしらの変更が生じる場合は、LUJ Blog並びに皆様のLUJのメールアドレス宛にその内容を通知いたします。日々、Blogやメールを確認し、大学との連絡を保つようにしてください。
