Warm greetings from Waseda University, Tokyo, Japan!
Waseda University started life as Tokyo Senmon Gakko (Tokyo College) on October 21, 1882. In the early years, it was also commonly known as the Waseda Gakko (Waseda School) or Totsuka Gakko (Totsuka School), after the location of founder Shigenobu Okuma’s villa in the village of Waseda and the school’s location in Totsuka Village. Around 1892, the vernacular name Waseda Gakko became prevalent, and the institution was formally renamed Waseda Daigaku (Waseda University) upon acquiring university designation in 1902.
Until now, the University has stayed true to its founding ideals, educating seven prime ministers and countless other politicians, business leaders, journalists, diplomats, scholars, scientists, inventors, actors, writers, and artists. Waseda’s history and tradition are to tirelessly challenge convention, in favor of progression and innovation. By its 150th anniversary in 2032, the University has committed to expanding its leadership in Asia and around the world.
