Student groups & activities in YCU's Hakkei campus

Kanazawa-hakkei (Hakkei) campus is YCU's main campus, which houses the university's trademark clock tower and ginkgo tree-lined main streets. Most of our undergraduate and graduate schools are based here, as is YCU's central administration. Our Hakkei campus also houses a variety of campus clubs and societies, as well as facilities including a training gym and pool that students can use absolutely free of charge.
Getting involved with societies is one of the best things about being a student - it can hands down give you some of the best experiences of your university life. No matter what your interests - sports, singing, helping others, learning - there's a society for you somewhere in YCU. The range of clubs and circles reflects our diverse student population, sporting facilities and breadth of subjects. Club activities are also a great way to meet like-minded individuals - some of whom may be your friends for life, long after you leave university! YCU's alumni are very actively involved in the clubs they were once a part of - participating in casual tournaments or attending club reunions.
