The International School Fair was held on May 16th, in a way to attract more students to go for a semester abroad “We would like to broaden their perspectives with various experiences abroad, so that they can build up their own networks worldwide,” says Shin Eun-wha from the Institute of International Cooperation and Education. Former exchange students together with international students represented UOS’s partner schools on each booth. There was also a bazaar with foods from the different countries.
The 2011 Daedongje, the UOS campus festival, was held for three days from May 18th to 20th. “Let’s play!” was the motto of this festival and there were many dynamic programs like the motto. On the 18th, a musical gala show led by the Department of Music was held. It was a new approach for the campus festival. Also through a Chorus made up of 100 people and Jangsangonmae Art Festival, students showed their talents. Diverse sub programs were prepared throughout the festival.
The first topic was to commemorate the May 18th Gwangju Democratization Movement. Programs included not only a marathon but also sharing rice ball and a film festival. Also, as the continuance of commemorating, Student Council organized a trip to Gwangju. The participants went to Gwangju from May 14th to 15th and went on a pilgrimage to places that were related to the 5.18 movement. The purpose of this trip was to promote the idea of being a rightful citizen through a great historical turning point in our country’s democracy.
