When we think of campus in May, we usually think of the university festivals. UOS also held a festival from May 22 to 24 named ‘Daedongje.’ The main theme of this year’s festival was ‘Brilliant’ and the secondary themes were ‘extreme, outdoor, color and light.’ There were a lot of things to see, eat and enjoy for UOS students.
The main events of the festival consisted of ‘Superstar UOS,’ which aimed to find UOS’s best hidden singers, the ‘flipper race,’ a relay race that six people as team run with flippers on, the ‘Dol + I contest,’ which picked out an eccentric person at UOS and a ‘water balloon battle’ with teams of four people who threw water balloons at each other. There was also a ‘Cookie Run contest,’ a smart phone game competition, and the winners who recorded the highest score got a prize. On one side of the campus were games, food and promotion booths which made the festival livelier. Simple games that students could take part in were prepared at the game booth. At the eating booths, snacks and alcohol were sold and most of the eating booths were bars that sold cocktails. At the promotion booths, each club’s promotion went off well.
Moreover, throughout the festival, there were onstage performances held everyday by clubs and famous singers. On May 22, Superstar UOS was held, on the 23, ‘Let’s Rock with Nobrain’ made the audience go mad with excitement, and on 24, ‘Superstar concert by Huh Gak’ was the grand finale of the stage performance. Throughout the three days, UOS students felt refreshed and eased their minds from their tiring daily routines.
