About Ayako Horiuchi Memorial Book Fund
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.
As a testimonial for her passion for learning, her father Toshihiro Horiuchi, a professor at Waseda University, donated 10,000,000 yen to Friends of ICU. 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）
The Library will be accepting requests for book acquisitions from any student who wishes the Library to add a particular book to its collection.
