Experience the Heart of 硅谷

利记爱SJ is a showcase of the strong, collaborative relationship between San José State University and the city of San José.

With 利记 located in the heart of the city, the 利记爱SJ initiative, in collaboration with 访问 San José, the Downtown Association, Japantown 业务 Association, and San José City Hall, further connects and and integrates students, faculty and staff with the culture of the thriving 当地社区.
