During lunch time, the seikyou cafeteria is always crowded. It usually opens from 11:00 to 13:30 but the second period classes finish at 12:10, then most of the students go to seikyou cafeteria. Students often have to wait in a long line to buy their lunch.
Of all the places on campus, I like the Seikyo shop the best.
If you run out of or forget pencils or notebooks, you can buy them easily and quickly here. And, not only can you can buy textbook and exam study guides but also magazines and comic books. Of course, you can buy food here too! In the summer, there’s soft-serve ice cream and in the winter hot drinks and Anman or Nikuman. You can also express bus tickets there without going to station. So Seikyo shop is the best convenience store for us students at HUEA!
However, it is separated from most of the campus buildings so when the weather is bad, it can be annoying to go there.
I don’t like the temporary building, where we use for the communication seminar.
It is far from the rest of campus and there are a lot of desks and chairs, so it’s really uncomfortable because it’s cramped. It also is never the right temperature. In the winter, when I enter the room it is very cold, so I turn the heater one. But once I turn on the heater, then it becomes too hot. This really irritates me. The worst point is that it has no toilet. Even if it is just “temporary”, I think it is really inconvenient.
I am in Special education seminar, so I love our seminar room in Education-building.
At our seminar room, we can do everything we need. For example, we can talk with students in the same seminar, eat, cook, study and sleep. Moreover, we can use free Wi-Fi.
Asahikawa’s winter is very cold. So almost class rooms are very cold, too. But we can turn on the heater freely at our seminar room and we can spend confortable time.
So I often go to our seminar room when I don’t have class.
Why don’t you spend relax time with us?
If you interested in special education, please come to our seminar room and feel free to ask me to be your guide!
If you’re part of the GEL program or visiting HUEA an international student, you should stop by my office. There’s several good things that can happen when you visit my office:
- First off, I often have little treats lying around, and if you’re a good student or stop by unexpectedly I may offer you something to welcome you into my office.
- There’s an electric kettle so I can make piping hot tea, hot chocolate, and hot apple cider.
- I tend to have one or two board games in my office at any given time (right now Carcassonne and Dixit). We play sitting on the comfortable couch.
- There’s Japanese-language manga lying around (HUNTERxHUNTER, Full Metal Alchemist, etc.).
- There’s a world map where you can mark where you’re from or where you studied abroad.
There’s a good chance that I will be in my office. Sometimes, we do class in my office. Other times, I am in here researching or coding. My research is primarily in philosophy in either late modern philosophy (Kant, Hegel, Kierkegaard) or early Confucianism. Somehow, I’ve also done a decent bit work on philosophy and childhood. More recently, I’ve also done a little bit of work more related to my work in CALL (Computer Assisted Language Learning).
If you are visiting our campus, please stop on by.
