Comments from students


“I used to always eat the saba lunch, but I am very happy that we now have more selections. It is nice that we can also eat meat.”

Comment from the person in charge
“Although the ratio of Muslims among international students is small, we would like to listen to the voices of students and correspond to them as much as we can. It has been a month since we opened, so we would like to take questionnaires from students and value the opinion of students. Ideally, we would like to expand these services to all cafeterias in each department to improve convenience.”
