Schedule for 2013 / 2014 Academic year

Here is the schedule for this academic year in Excel format. Note that this year we have our final week of classes sandwiched between days of make-up classes. Also, please notice that while most workers in Japan will be enjoying Showa Day, Marine Day, Health & Sports Day, and the Emperor’s Birthday, we will be industriously occupied in classroom endeavors. To avoid any possible irony, “Labor Thanksgiving Day” will be a holiday for us.
