University festival

In May, There are many festivals. Especially, University festivals are held every May.[1] The purpose of the festival is to celebrate school spirit as well as get along with students and inhabitants.[2] In festivals, various elaborate programs are held, including as many as 100 kinds of events participated in by clubs, and dormitories have an open-house day. Some students become fundraisers, school clubs sell drinks and food from around the world, and perform various music and dances.[3]And students hold games. For example, Throwing water balloons, and dunking people into a pool.
Inhabitants and high school students come to enjoy festival and to see pop singers.[4] But There are problems in college festivals. These days, College students do not celebrate school spirit as well as before and don’t along with after students but drink a lot of alcohol and only attend pop concerts.
