First and foremost, I would like to tell new students to the Doctoral Programs the importance of making efforts requiring patience in order to accumulate accomplishments. I hope that they will create a positive upward spiral through which they actively improve their research environments by seeking places for presentations both on and off campus, gaining competitive funds, etc., which will result in better research that further leads to the next research results. I believe that in today’s society, the attitude of asking themselves what role their research would play will bring about a new development and practice of arts.
