A special exhibition to celebrate 100th, and 50th anniversary of UOS and UOS News respectively is being held at University Museum until Apr. 30. First founded in 1918, UOS started as Kyung Sung Public Agricultural College until it was renamed as the University of Seoul in the following year.
The exhibition celebrates its anniversary by displaying pictures taken in certain historical parts of Seoul in the past and now taken by UOS students themselves. The pictures of Seoul 100 years ago show history of the city as well as the country. At the same time, by comparing them to those taken nowadays, the exhibition tries to capture the disappearing Korean culture within Seoul. The pictures at Museum were valuable not only because it holds history of Seoul and UOS, but also because it captures the scenery with Korean tradition beautifully.
In addition to the above, UOS News exhibited its timeline, editorial cartoons, and old newspapers to boast its history as university press. The Editor-in-Chief of UOS News, Chang Han-bit (Dept. of Urban Sociology, ’12) told The UOS Times, “I am happy that an exhibition was held to share with others the history UOS News seniors built. I will work hard to make newspapers that live up to its history and that we can be proud of in the future.” The exhibition is open Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
