Big plans in store for Mitakihara ahead of Magia Day

Sayaka Miki is the Vice-Chancellor for life at Mitakihara University. At a press conference at Tsukino Centre, Ms. Miki introduced new plans for the University ahead of Magia Day 2046 on Saturday at Mitakihara Stadium. Expansion is the word of the day, with an emphasis towards online learning. Ms. Miki was in an excited mood when asked about the future of Madoka.

"The first thing I would like to announce is that Mitakihara University will reduce its on-campus enrollment numbers and make efforts in increasing its off-campus enrollment numbers," said Ms. Miki at the press conference. "We are reducing off-campus enrollment to 12,000 at our main campus and 4,000 at our Canberra campus in Australia. At the same time, our off-campus enrollment has risen to 1,000,000 and will increase to 4,000,000 undergraduates and 1,000,000 postgraduates taking distance learning or online courses. 

"A majority of our students are earning their degrees online, with many of our courses being broadcast via stream. We reach out to every country and territory in the world that has a wireless connection. We plan to be bigger than IGNOU, the Indira Gandhi National Open University of India.

"Secondly, we are announcing that construction has begun on a new campus in Mitakihara Town, Japan, our designated sister city in that country. This will become the first liberal arts college and the first institution of higher learning in that city. In the past, residents of Mitakihara, Japan had to commute to Tokyo or other cities to attend college. Now, with the addition of the Japan Campus, the Mitakihara Family Experience truly returns to its roots and reaches out to the men and women of one of the most progressive cities in Japan.

"Construction of the Japan Campus will complete by April 2050, at which the campus will be dedicated by Dr. Madoka Kaname, Homura Akemi, our University President, myself, and the Provost of the Japan Campus, who is being selected and will be announced in 2049.

"Finally, it is with sadness that I have to announce this news that Quest University Canada will be closing its doors in 2050. We have agreed to take over the buildings and facilities at the Squamish Campus. Effective July 2050, the former Quest University Canada will be renamed Mitakihara University - Squamish Campus, or Mitakihara-Squamish for short. The teams will, as they were with Quest be called the Kermodes and will be the CIS-SIC extension of our Athletics Department. This way, we have teams that compete in Canadian Interuniversity Sport and the National Collegiate Athletic Assocation.

"All in all, I can assure you that great things will be happening in M-Town and elsewhere around the world as we begin to close this decade. Our goal of being one of the largest universities in Canada and the world is being accomplished before our eyes. 

"Fasten your seatbelts."
