STUDENT ORGANIZATIONS


Explore the diverse array of student-initiated activities on campus. Student organizations, whether academic, cultural, or social, are an integral part of college experience in Japan. This is a way to make lifelong friends outside the classroom, and offers opportunities for foreign students to make Japanese friends and practice Japanese. A number of these organizations, such as Sophia Enterprises, Sophia Alpha, and Sophia Express, are run by students in the FLA and operate in English. Students showcase their talent and vitality at the annual Sophia Festival and other events.
