  • Students Aid in Recovery of 3.11 (2011) Tsunami Area, August 2013
  • LSA+ Japan 2013 Tohoku Volunteering Eight students from the Language Study Abroad Program in Chiba/Tokyo and faculty member Jim Dorsey spent five days volunteering in the northeastern (tōhoku) region of Japan, helping in the recovery efforts in regions devastated by the earthquake and tsunami that struck the region on 11 March 2011 Bunking in the volunteer center attached to the Nishi Honganji Temple in Sendai City, the crew worked in both the Natori and Wakabayashi areas. Alongside a steady stream of volunteers from Musashino University and elsewhere, the Dartmouth team pulled weeds, sort washed up debris for recycling, and restored a vegetable plot. The work was backbreaking, but made worthwhile by frequent, sincere words of thanks-arigatoo gozaimashita-from the local residents. Read more in the article featured in the Dartmouth Now:
