It has been 30 years since The UOS Times ? foundation in 1984. As the University of Seoul? s only official English media, The UOS Times has strived to bring globalism to UOS and the students by publishing English magazines and introducing UOS to the other universities in various parts of the world.
Despite of many ups and downs, which I believe were actually the motivations to strengthen the bond between the reporters of The UOS Times and to go forward, we are still going strong after the publications of 127 issues.
I want to give many thanks to our readers who made this special day possible. The readers of The UOS Times are the reasons why The UOS Times is here and why we take pride in
ourselves in publishing each issue.
The 30th birthday is special. You are now officially a mature and responsible adult who has the necessary wisdom to make important decisions in life. But ironically in this society, for a man, age of 30 means you are a rookie who is just taking a first step into the “real world.” Three decades, whether short or long in different perspectives, The UOS Times has grown together with the University of Seoul. This Vice Editorin-Chief is just honored to be part of the one and only English media of 30-year.
On April 1, 1984 The UOS Times started as a little club in the Dept. of English Language and Literature. Thanks to all the alumni and readers who continuously devoted their time and memory to The UOS Times, we are now proudly calling this magazine as one of the three main UOS Press.
Lew Wallace once said “A man thirty years old, I said to myself, should have his field of life all ploughed, and his planting well done; for after that it is summer time.” Just like he said, I believe this anniversary is a turning point for The UOS Times to be more rich and ripe magazine ever. I hope to see this mid-aged magazine become quintessence of UOS stuents life as time goes by, in their 40s and 50s. Happy Birthday to The UOS Times, among with other reporters and devotees who love our magazine more than anybody.
