I graduated from this university,Tohoku University of Art and Design.
When I was a student, the school had founded only for three years
and facility and system was not enough for students.
Then, the uni seems change a lot now, they open many event for local people,
collaborate with big corporations or have activities for students or artist.
I am proud of students, working so hard and doing great activity.
Especially I admire this organisation.
