Extracurricular Student Clubs & Circles requested to refrain from Recruitment Activities following Entrance Ceremony



This year's Entrance Ceremony is scheduled for Tuesday, April 2 at Osaka Jo Hall. Although it used to be typical for members of Osaka University's extracurricular clubs and circles to gather and try to recruit new members as the new students left the ceremony, we ask once again that all student groups refrain from all such recruitment activities.

The reasons are the same as in the past couple of years:

First, the entrance/exit area of Osaka Jo Hall is not that spacious and, moreover, there are steps making a crowded situation dangerous. In addition, Osaka Jo Hall is located within Osaka Jo Koen [Osaka Castle Park] and the park will already be filled with many persons enjoying the cherry blossoms. Engaging in recruitment in the park will be a nuisance to general citizens and create ill will.

Last year, despite a similar ban on recruitment activities, a few groups engaged in recruitment activities, causing the university to receive complaints.

Therefore, all extracurricular student clubs and circles, including unofficial student groups, are strictly forbidden from engaging in any sort of recruitment activities following the 2013 Entrance Ceremony.

We thank you for your understanding and cooperation in advance.

We would like you to note that an Extracurricular Club & Circle Orientation has been planned for Saturday, April 6, 2013, on the Toyonaka campus. Please plan on concentrating your recruitment activities to the Extracurricular Club & Circle Orientation!

Please note, however, that your club or circle must register in advance!

For more information, please contact Culture Union or Sports Union.
