Read about the experiences of the Global Student Body of Keio SFC
One of the reasons for choosing my current laboratory is my strong interest in human behavior. At SFC I mix with other GIGA students from a wide range of countries and with Japanese students through my research groups. I discovered pattern language through a compulsory course during my first year, and joined the Generative Beauty pattern language research group to work on translation and localization into Korean of the lab book of 48 patterns for Generative Beauty, which provides solutions for a beautiful and fulfilled life. One simple example is a pattern for when you are tired or things are not going well, to take a day away from your normal activities with the freedom to do whatever you want to do, in order to refresh your mind.More Info
Global Alumni Network
Over 800 alumni associations in Japan and 70 worldwide
Keio’s students are called jukusei while alumni are affectionately addressed as jukuin, many of whom continue to cherish their connections to their alma mater and the many friends and teachers they have learned with long after graduation. The lifelong bonds and sense of solidarity between alumni, as well as the strong connection between alumni and the university, are distinctive features and a source of great pride for Keio University. This strong network among our graduates, best embodied by the numerous alumni organizations called Mita-kai, is part of what makes Keio truly unique.
