Student Support (Student Activity Support Fund)

At the end of every year, a call is made for students who are the most outstanding individuals (or groups) in a certain given field. Two of the entrants are then selected to receive the award.

While this circle holds respect in high regards, the hierarchical constraints common to sports have consciously been done away with and all the members are free to speak their minds regardless of age or rank. In previous years, the circle joined forces with teams from other universities in order to participate in tournaments.
