On the 2nd of May, 2005, Miss Ayako Horiuchi, a junior in the Division of International Studies, passed away due to acute subarachnoid hemorrhage. Miss Horiuchi had studied in Italy and the U.K. as a child, and upon entering ICU, developed on her experiences and strengths, fostered close relationships with friends, and together with her furthering study of international relations, dreamed of a future career at UNESCO.

In following with his wishes as a father and educator, the University has budgeted approximately 500,000 yen per year to purchase books requested by students, to add to the library’s resources （The ICU No.17 Mar.2006）
