The following is a student's response to the question, "Which is worse, arguing with someone orfiving someonethesilent treatment?"
I think giving someone the silent treatment is worse. It's because I felt sad when I was given that treatment by my friend. I am stubborn and I am poor at saying "I'm sorry." Because of this, we couldn't be friends for a while. I always argue with my friend to solve a problem saying "Sorry." But I think relationship trouble is one of the experiences worth having.
On October 31st, Thursday, 1st year students had "Yu-fa-z." Students who represented each class made a presentation on "International Understanding" and "Medical Affairs." They referred to what they had learned through lectures by Saijo City Hall staff and what students themselves had researched, and they suggested their plans to improve the present situation their community is facing. The 1st year students all actively participated in the presentation and the question and answer session as well.
