Senpai-Kohai Pub Night

Our annual Senpai-Kohai Pub Night is upon us. It's a prime time to get the real wisdom from the JET alumni who have gone before you. It's not just the alcohol, but also great advice that will pour out freely, as you prepare to embark on your Japan journey! Of course non-alcoholic delicious beverages and great pub food will also be enjoyed.

Current JET Alumni, put on your best senpai smile (or smirk) and see off the starry-eyed out-going JET's.

The pub night will be held immediately following the out-going JET Orientation on Sunday, July 15th at Wasabi Sushi Bar [link to their site] (41 Clarence St. Ottawa) at 5:30pm. (please note the change of venue and time)
