A booth was installed infront of the Student Hall managed by the Student Council
On Apr. 16, the Sewol ferry carrying 475 people sunk into the deep sea. For family members who have more difficulties and sorrow than anyone, the Student Council and Student Representatives asked the University of Seoul (UOS) students to give a helping hand. Students can send condolence messages, aid goods, and funds to the victims’ families. And these are delivered to the Jindo gymnasium reception desk in the name of all UOS students. While the work of refloating the hull is being completed, on-line deposits are still in progress. Students who wished to give help; those who did not know this fact until now can still help.

This campaign was started by two UOS students, Lee Soo-jin (Dept. of English Language and Literature, ’12) and Kim Su-min (Dept. of English Language and Literature, ’12), who wanted to help the families of victims.

Lee said “I felt bad because of the Sewol ferry disaster. However I felt worse when I realized I had nothing to give them. Since I do not have the ability to rescue the victims, other things suddenly came to my mind. Searching on the internet, there were several ways to lend a hand so I looked for a practical way with my peers. I thought it would be worth if I could help as much as possible. Therefore, I put this idea forward to the Student Council. The campaign was successful because of the help of many students. The Student Council and each college of UOS worked even harder than my friend and I. Especially considering that it took place during our examination period, it would have been a lot more difficult to do this campaign by myself.”

Kim said, “At first, Lee posted on Facebook that she wanted to help family of victims. However, the Student Council had no answer. So I decided to progress this campaign with her and contacted the president of the Student Council and Office of Planning and Research. Fortunately, the Student Council admitted our suggestion immediately. Therefore, the day of contacting them was on Friday night, and we could start the campaign on Monday.”
