Historical Note

The Asia University America Program was established at OSU in 1988 to bring Japanese students from the Asia University in Tokyo to OSU for intensive English language training as well as classes in American history and culture and physical education. The English Language Institute designed and implemented the program, which was also established at three Washington universities. The program at OSU was closed in August 1994.
