The admission office of UOS gathered homecoming students from May 8 to 25 who are to visit their alma maters during the summer break. The students were selected through interviews. Those who were selected attended orientation on May 26 and following this, the students have to visit their alma mater on any day Jun. 23 to Aug. 29.
Any UOS students were eligible to participate as homecoming students who wish to publicize UOS to juniors. The visitor number was originally limited to around 100 students, maximum two students per high school. However admission office currently drafted 158 students. Admission office replied to such matter as “we are open to all of the passionate participants.” Each student is aided with educational spending, meal, activity cost, and refreshments. Students from Jeju Island will be provided with plane tickets as well on their visit.
UOS students will promote the admission process and the school, do simple admission counseling and moreover, give tips on their test-taking days. As a final procedure, visitors are obligated to hand in the report of their visit that is due on Sep.3. The admission office is anticipating the homeland visiting program, saying “Even though UOS continuously holds briefing session for test-takers, it cannot reach every single school. In many ways, the homecoming students are necessary. Students will cover the places that UOS could not make their sessions. Moreover, test-takers will build stronger bond with current students of UOS, listening through their real stories. We are just glad that there are many students who are eager to promote UOS.”
