Academic Life in CampusImproving the quality of student life to reach the level of top university is a central mission of the Office.

As a starting point, we are organizing a series of different social programs. If you have any talent or interest in art, culture, entertainment, and other social activities, please contact the Office.
WorkshopsTo achieve the goals planned by the Office programs, we need to empower our people with most advanced techniques. We run a series of practical workshops, and we aim to expand them nationally and even in the region. Browse tentative workshops through its menu.
Arts & EntertainmentsAcademic life is the main theme of this Office, and we run different kinds of social events to activate our academic community. If you have any (absolutely any) talent in any areas of arts, please feel free to inform the Office.
This programs is not limited to the university. If you have potentials in any artistic field, we do our best to help you for finding your future career.
REMEMBER! academia should help you to find your future career, not necessarily in your education discipline.
Women's OutreachNo society can be fully advanced and civilized without full participation of women. It is not only losing 50% of human resource, but also having unnatural atmosphere.
We cannot achieve a gender balance across the university in short-term, but we aim to improve it at least in the Office programs.
Thus, we strongly encourage female students to participate. Join us to build a better atmosphere for social life of women.
