This Onam the students of St. Teresa’s College had much to cheer for as they welcomed the first batch of International students from Sophia University, Japan.
The students were accompanied by their professor Father John Joseph and Mr. Yuya Mukai, Coordinator of the International wing of Sophia University.
The visitors were given a traditional welcome afterwhich they spent the entire forenoon in the college interacting with the Teresians who entertained them with a host of programmes keeping alive the festivities of Onam. Apart from enjoying the Thiruvathira and pookalam, the students were also given an authentic taste of Kerala cuisine as they savored the traditional Onasadya . The visiting students too put up a cultural performance for their Teresian counterparts.
The college Director, Dr Sr Vinitha and the Principal, Dr Sajimol Augustine spoke on the occasion.
Sophia University, Japan and St Teresa’s College also signed an MOU for mutual collaboration for all future endeavors.
