Student Life

Special Events

Life at Keisen begins with the opening ceremony and Freshman Fellowship, an introduction to Keisen education and advice about student life. "Keisen Spring Festival" in May and "Keisen Day/Tama Festival" in November, also open to local residents, features student-initiated lectures, concerts, dramas, seminars, and club activities.


Christianity is a fundamental principle at Keisen, with optional chapel services every morning, annual services (at Christmas and in memory of founder Michi Kawai), and special services (musical services, services in English, and services conducted by non-Japanese speakers).


"Deep emotions never end."

In March comes commencement. Seniors receive their diplomas from the university president, pass the school lantern to their juniors--- the light of learning passing from year to year--- and go out into society.
