Abstract

There are two objectives in this thesis: one is to clarify the role of university students in a tour held at a university. Another is to prove what the \“spontaneous motivation” is that enables university students to have a sustainable interest in tourism. This research adopts the following method. 1: Analysis of two preceding tours. 2: Building up the Providing Information and Knowledge Model (PIKM) and the Common Pleasure Model (CPM). 3: Proof of the CPM. As a result, the CPM can provide intimate communication between university students and tourists. The CPM can provide pleasure for both university students and tourists and special rewards for students.
