The 2nd T∞ - Tsukuba Eight - held

(2012.06.16)

"T∞ - Tsukuba Eight -" was held at the University Hall on June 16. It was prepared by "Brast"‚ a group composed of students of the University of Tsukuba‚ as part of activities to make a Tsukuba Brand. The event was the 2nd time‚ following the first event held last March.

The Brast actually planned and implemented the "T∞ - Tsukuba Eight -"‚ based on their thoughts what should be done to increase the university's brand value.
Even though it was unfortunately raining on the day‚ nearly 350 people took part in the event.

A total of eight speakers who are active in their respective areas including former students‚ staff‚ and current students of the University of Tsukuba made 20-minute presentations in an omnibus lecture style. Under the theme of "Vision"‚ they presented talks about what they were thinking in their university days; how that helped them in their lives; and what they are aiming at now and in the future.

During the event‚ each presenter posed some questions of the participating students. The students wrote their answers on a post-it and put it on the lobby wall.

At the end of the event‚ a question-and-answer session was held. The students asked a lot of questions to the speakers. The eight speakers answered the questions based on their actual experiences and knowledge.

Mr. Takahiro Tayama (fourth-year student of the College of Media Arts‚ Science and Technology)‚ representative of the Brast‚ talked that he would like to continue to hold an attractive event in the future‚ so that the students will recognize the attraction of our university‚ such as interdisciplinary education and its diversity.
