Established in 1876 this university is a scenic spot, with a number of unique buildings. The Furukawa Memorial Hall and the Seikatei are noteworthy, and several campus museums are open to the public. The bust of William S Clark, the founding vice-president of the university, is a well-known landmark. Upon his departure in 1877, Professor Clark famously told his students: 'Boys, be ambitious!'
