Meeting with the clubs
Culture, art and thought clubs, which include various performance arts from music to theater, fashion to e-gaming, dance to cinema, informed new students of ITU about their activities and met with their new members. Sports clubs, on the other hand, were in the field to encourage ITU students to do sports for a healthy life, as a hobby or with professional license. Project teams and student clubs, which contribute greatly to the career plans of ITU students as well as a social learning period, explained their activities throughout the festival.
