Student Clubs and Organizations

Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are essential for students to enjoy a rich campus life.
Rikkyo has many clubs and circle activity groups covering various fields in academics, culture, and sports. Of these, there are approximately 200 groups officially recognized by the University which belong to athletic associations, student Christian groups, and registered associations, and which are active both inside and outside of the University, organized independently by students.
Over 90% of students join a club or circle at least once, and over 60% of students continue to take part in their activities.
