TUFS Clubs Info for International Students

2018.5.28 update

Voluntarily and on their own responsibility students conduct extracurricular athletic, cultural, intellectual, and social clubs according to their interests and abilities. These activities, together with academic research through the regular curriculum, play an indispensable and important role in the campus life of students here at TUFS. Diverse experience gained through extracurricular activities, and friendships cultivated outside of the classroom are quite useful after students graduate and go out into society. TUFS has 51 cultural and 49 athletic circles and clubs authorized to conduct extracurricular activities.

Below, we will introduce 13 of them.
