A large number of student groups (clubs and circles) are active on our campuses. Below, we list student groups that are recognized by the university. Among these groups are clubs and circles which belong to groups affiliated with university sports teams or the Federation of Cultural Organizations, groups that conduct their own unique activities, known as voluntary associations, and committees involved in the staging of major events, such as the university festival. Our student groups are earnest in their desire to improve their skills, and so even our circles are involved in a diverse range of activities. In addition, one of the distinctive features of Meiji Gakuin University is the vigorous activity of volunteer groups and Christian groups on our campuses.
