The executive team of JRQ is made up with a group of students from different cultural backgrounds with common interest in the Japanese culture. We have been promoting Japanese culture on campus through monthly events in the past years. Last year, we launched a language buddy program to create an opportunity for students to practice Japanese on a bi-weekly basis. In the upcoming academic year, we will continue to promote Japanese culture to Queen’s and Kingston community with monthly events, language buddy, and more.
With weekly meetings, the executive members of JRQ plan and prepare for our monthly events. Most JRQ events involve a delicious Japanese culture—food. The executive team prepares homemade Japanese cuisines and serves Queen’s and Kingston community with authentic Japanese food and cultural activities. We also initiated a language buddy program to encourage Queen’s students to practice Japanese with exchange students from Japan, and vice versa, let the exchange students practice English and transition into the Canadian culture.
