Entrance Ceremony and Graduation

Every year, Toyo University holds an Entrance Ceremony for new students and a Graduation to celebrate the departure of graduates.

Entrance Ceremony

The Entrance Ceremony is held at the Nippon Budokan (*) in April when the cherry blossoms are in bloom.
(*) The Nippon Budokan was built as one of the Tokyo Olympic sites, and is one of the top multipurpose facilities in Japan, capable of holding about 14,000 people.

Past addresses by the President and Chancellor have included the following messages regarding university life.

  • Setting goals and making efforts to achieve them
  • Trusting your ability and potential to study hard and challenge unknown fields
  • Appreciating family
  • Continuously "Searching Yourself" to cultivate a foundation as a human
  • Finding your own "way of seeing and way of thinking"

Everyone from Toyo University welcomes the arrival of new students through greetings by current representative students as well as through the chairmanship and speeches by graduates.

Graduation Ceremonies

These are held in March and September. Graduation ceremonies are held by the undergraduate schools and graduate schools of each campus. Female students wear kimonos and hakamas when attending the graduation ceremony, making each campus of Toyo University colorful and cheerful.

Baccalaureate addresses by the President and Vice President, and addresses by department deans include the following messages for graduates leaving the campus.

  • Graduation is not the end, but rather a new beginning
  • One of the most important things in life is to continue learning
  • Do not forget to have appreciation and maintain pride as a Toyo University graduate
  • Become a part of society with confidence that your efforts will bring results

Reply addresses by graduates are given, and then diplomas are presented.

We send off graduates into society with our hope that they will utilize the knowledge and spirit they gained from Toyo University, and will help support future society.
