To be a well-balanced individual, it is important for students to build a network outside of the classroom. At Rikkyo, you will be exposed to many choices of clubs and activities.

Enrichment and Volunteer Activities
At Rikkyo, we believe that learning happens outside the classroom as well. We have a wide range of over 60 activities, such as volunteer and cultural exchange activities, that will deepen your connection to the community. Through these activities, you can nurture yourself and appreciate the importance of giving back to society. We introduce some activities below.
Yonsei-Keio-Rikkyo-Fudan (YKRF) Leadership Forum
The YKRF Leadership Forum is a collaboration between four leading universities in East Asia: Yonsei University (Korea), Keio University (Japan), Rikkyo University (Japan) and Fudan University (China). The Forum is held annually at one of the four universities with the purpose to enhance leadership skills while developing mutual understanding of one another's culture and thoughts.
Rikkyo University has a long history and tradition of volunteer activities, and the Volunteer Center supports and encourages students to volunteer. You first meet with a coordinator about your interests and needs, and the coordinator then provides appropriate information and advice to you. We strongly recommend that you consider such a rewarding experience.
