The fourth annual program Secret Santa was conducted for three days from Dec. 21 to 23. The event was held to encourage voluntary service and promote a communal spirit among UOS students.

Secret Santa is an annual event planned by the Student Welfare Committee of UOS. As usual, students who applied for Secret Santa took part in the event under the leadership of promotion planners in the Student Welfare Committee. Some business enterprises also joined in as supporters by supplying necessary goods.

The three-day long event was held in different ways with different themes. At the event “U&I Running Santa,” held on the 21st, secret santas played tag with children from Gongneung Welfare Center. On the 22nd, they handed prepared gifts to Dongdaemun-gu residents at Cheongnyangni Station. There was more to the event than just gift-giving, however. Secret santas performed flash mob dances, and UOS Central Clubs Tru-Hz (African-American music club) and Hansorae (acoustic guitar and singing club) performed live to entertain surrounding audience to help promote the event. This was followed by a fund-raising campaign and prize lottery. On the 23rd, UOS and UOS Community Welfare Center co-sponsored a Christmas party at The 21st Century Building.

According to a member of Student Welfare Committee, the event earned favorable reviews from both students and nearby residents. One of the secret santas, Park Ji-jung (Dept. of International Relations, ’11) said, “It was a good opportunity to feel thankful for what I had taken for granted, especially when I delivered a gift to the bus driver.” On the strength of these positive reactions, the Student Welfare Committee plans to secure more goods and expand the event’s scale by contacting more corporate sponsors in 2014.
