Q17 How can I solve problems in study or private life?

A: You can consult your close friends for ordinary, simple, and easy problems.

You can also consult
the Office for Assistance Support and Information in the School of Science (OASIS) or the Tohoku University Counseling Center for serious problems. The people in these offices keep the information of students who visit for consultation strictly confidential. If needed, they can intervene between the students and faculty concerned.
  A university is a place where many people study and research together. It is natural that people become involved in various difficulties and friction with others, but that must not keep them from consulting others. Telling your troubles to others might be advantageous because you can view your difficulties objectively and benefit from another person’s point of view. Before your problem grows to a serious one, it is advised that you consult others and a find a way to decide on appropriate measures.
