Precautions for activities to welcome new circle members

Prohibition of gatherings around Takadanobaba Station and in front of BIG BOX

Especially during the period of welcoming new circle members (early April), many students gather around Takadanobaba Station (including the rotary in front of the station) and in front of BIG BOX, and this causes a great deal of inconvenience to the surrounding residents and station users, and we have received many complaints.

As we have repeatedly reminded you in the past, please do not gather in groups of circles, classes, seminars, etc. around Takadanobaba Station or in front of BIG BOX.

If it is absolutely necessary to meet up, please do so on the Waseda University campus.

If it is confirmed that you are gathering in the Takadanobaba area or in front of the BIG BOX, we will take measures such as not assigning you a booth for newcomers for the next year.

We would like to ask all Waseda students to act with an awareness of being a member of the community surrounding the university.As a member of the local community surrounding the university, we would like to ask all Waseda students to be responsible for yourself.

Activities to new circle members at other universities

When holding recruitment activities at other universities, please check the rules of each university on their websites etc. and follow those rules.

(e.g., if you want to hold a recruitment activity at Japan Women’s University, you need to register in advance during the designated period.)

If a circle does not follow the rules and causes inconvenience to other universities, neighbors, or passers-by, the circle will be penalized, including suspension of use of the newcomer booth or lounge at Waseda University.

We would like to ask all students to act with awareness.

Waseda Culture & Art Festival

「Waseda Culture & Art Festival The “Waseda Culture & Art Festival” is an event that started in 2010. With the support of the Student Affairs Section and the Cultural Affairs Division of Waseda University, students take the lead to plan/formulate this event. Participating circles (official circles) demonstrate the achievements of their regular activities. The seismic repair work for Okuma Auditorium was completed, so the event can be held in Okuma Auditorium in AY2020 for the first time in 2 years.
Please apply for the festival, as this is a major spring event in Waseda that is as great as the Waseda Festival in fall.
