Members of a nine-strong delegation from the St. Thomas University (STU) in Japan recently visited Colegio de San Juan de Letran as part of the cultural programs of STU. STU was introduced by Aquinas University in Legazpi City, also a Dominican institution.
The visiting group from STU was led by Prof. Kathleen Yamane, director of the Center for Cross-cultural Exchange and was welcomed by Letran rector and president Rev. Fr. Tamerlane Lana, O.P., executive vice president Rev. Fr. Napoleon Encarnacion, O.P., and vice president for financial affairs Rev. Fr. Boyd Sulpico, O.P., among others.
Jhennie Caldito-Villar, director of the Public Affairs and Media Development Office, was also present to orient the visitors about Letran and its history. The STU officials were also treated to a campus tour of Letran and its facilities.
"We are happy that our friends from Japan visited us here in Letran. This goes to show that Letran is now starting to build camaraderie and friendship from schools in different countries," said Caldito-Villar.
