Extracurricular activities

Extracurricular activities play an important role for students to have the experiences that will form them as people and that they cannot obtain from regular education alone. Voluntary group activities that include many exchanges with students and others, such as with the local community, will encourage their healthy mental and physical development, including becoming autonomous and cooperative, by training their minds and bodies.

There are many University-wide authorized extracurricular-activities groups engaged in activities; there are 32 cultural groups, 51 sports groups, 2 cheer and wind orchestra groups, 9 student council affiliated groups, 10 Circle Association-affiliated groups, and 4 other groups (as of April 1, 2014). They are mainly based in the Rokkodai area but there are also groups active on the Fukae campus. There are also many extracurricular activities groups (clubs) other than the authorized groups.

The facilities that can be used by the University's students and teaching faculty include the Yama no ie (Mountain House) facility and the Marine Practical Training Facilty in Awaji managed by the Faculty of Maritime Sciences.

Groups active in the Fukae area

The men's Boating club, the women's Boating club, the Baseball club of faculty, and the Canoe club
