Cancellation of Saitama University Entrance Ceremony

In response to the spread of the COVID-19, we decided to cancel the 2021 entrance ceremony scheduled for Thursday, April 8.
Until now, we have considered measures to prevent the spread of infection, such as reducing the scale of events and reducing the number of visitors. However, the spread of the infection in the Tokyo metropolitan area has not subsided at all, and the timing of convergence is uncertain, so the decision was made in consideration of the health and safety of new students. I am sure that the new students and their families have been looking forward to this day, but I hope you understand.
Instead of the entrance ceremony, the university president will send a video message to the new students at a later date, and we will let you know as soon as they are ready.
