What's NEW


Seminar for Freshmen -- "Vision Navigation Seminar"!

2012-4-8 (Sun) 1:30 p.m. -

"I'm happy I got accepted by Osaka University. But ... I don't have any friends here yet."

"There's so much I want to do.... Where do I begin?"

If you're a new in-coming student at Osaka University and you have feelings like the above, then

VINAS, a student group devoted to assisting in-coming new students in finding "vision" and "navigation" as they begin university life, is for you!

Come to this seminar and we'll help you get your feet on the ground. Upper class students will give you practical advice. Attend this seminar and discover new things from upper class students who are now totally at home here. They will help you to formulate your university life.

Take this first step toward your future!
