From the years of 1942-1945 more than a dozen students attend Roberts Wesleyan College (then known as Chesbrough Seminary) as part of a program sponsored by the Relocation Council. This program placed Japanese/American students that been moved by the United States government to internment camps in colleges in the Midwest and East Coast. Having been approved for travel permits by the FBI and the U.S. Department of Education, and with financial support of the Young People's Missionary Society of the Free Methodist Church, the first 6 students in the program arrived on the campus in the fall of 1942.
