This is also a chance for you to ask your upperclassmen about classes, circles, or part-time jobs.

Circle Recruitment Events

Circle Recruitment Line (CANCELLED)

After the procedural process and introduction to your respective sophomore class, you will receive recruitment from various student organizations such as clubs and circles.
Circles will have their respective booths and recruit freshmen to join their activities.
Most organizations will be handing out flyers, so we recommend that you bring a large bag to carry the flyers around.

Circle Orientation

Circle orientation is a fair-like event where circles, clubs, and autonomous student organizations have the chance to recruit freshmen.
At this event, you will be able to explore many circles of numerous kinds. Organizations are assigned classrooms, which you will be free to pay a visit to and to hear more about their usual activities.
The guidebook for circle orientation, “Komaba Walker”, will be distributed upon the admission procedure. You can also use the circle search engine, which is a function provided by this website, and find out which classroom each circle is assigned to. Please feel free to use it so that you can search for your circles of interest before the day of circle orientation.
Class photos will be taken on the same day as circle orientation. Please make sure you are not late for your class’ respective time.
