Be on guard! Be alert!
You do not know when that time will come.
(Mark 13:33)

We are in the era of great difficulty for both society and individuals. There are no doubt many students who have anxiety about university life and their future.
But please suppress your impatience and negativity for a while and be aware that university is a place of learning.
It is a place to consider specific things that exist in modern society through political science, economics, humanities, and paedology.
Though we are living in a radically changing era, there are some things that never change. Two prime examples are the liberty of humans and the value and dignity of every person.
At Seigakuin University, you can acquire insight into what should and what should not be changed.
