Sole Student Enrolled at University in Osaka Lives out Undergrad Nightmare Daily

We’ve all had that dream where you walk into your most hated college lecture and take your usual seat – in the very back, of course – only to find that you’re the only person that showed up that day and it’s just you and your professor staring awkwardly at each other. And possibly you have no pants on.

That dream is an everyday reality for the one single enrolled student at Osaka’s St. Thomas University. Enrollment at the university has been gradually shrinking over the years as the Japanese government continues to reject the school’s license applications to teach a number of degrees.

Even the single enrolled student now is supposed to graduate in the spring; that is if she/he was able to handle the constant pressure of being the only person in every class all day, most likely while professors heavy-handedly reminded the student that their careers depended on the student staying an extra year or two.

We’d love to approach the single student for an interview about campus life, but fear the desperate 20-something would force us to play a game of hackey sack and hit the eternally empty campus bar for an awkward beer just so he/she could feel like a normal college student for once.
