Mustangs Forever

I spent the three best years of my life here. Everything was new, fresh, exciting and vibrant. The friends I made here, I made for life and it changed my future. I was never to be the same again.

—Magnus Sandberg ‘02

An International Family

Our global network of over 7,500 alumni provides a lifelong community offering unique opportunities to connect, network, mentor and socialize—enhancing careers, providing pathways to new experiences and offering deep friendship and support. An ASIJ education transcends time and place that leads to a lifetime of connections. Each year we host community receptions in the United States and Japan in addition to the many class reunions and regional gatherings organized by alumni.

We help our alumni stay connected to each other and to the school through our Alumni Portal, Mustangs Online. The portal is packed with news, information about upcoming events and reunions, photo galleries, internship and job opportunities, a directory and more. Our alumni may also request transcripts through the portal or by contacting our registrar at registrar@asij.ac.jp
