Apr. 16, 2015, Korea marked the first anniversary of the tragic sinking of the Sewol Ferry. In remembrance of this disastrous event, UOS students have prepared a number of commemorations to remember the 304 innocent people who perished, most of them high school students.

With a student from Dept. of Philosophy taking the initiative to do something to remember Sewol, a group of students gathered to put up daejaboes and built a memorial altar in front of the Student Hall, where many pedestrians stopped to pay tribute. Not only that, a week before the anniversary, they started passing out yellow ribbons to UOS students to increase their awareness.

On the first anniversary day, commemoration performances took place outside the Student Hall, with more than 30 students taking part in the event, in spite of rainy weather. Such efforts to remember the incident are not only visible on campus, but also outside of campus. On the same day at Gwanghwamun Square, the public, including many university students, attended a commemoration ceremony to pay respects to the victims and to console the bereaved families.

Kang Na-hae (Dept. of Industrial and Visual Design, ’13) expressed concern that many people no longer seem to remember the tragedies of Sewol Ferry. “We, as university students, should not grow numb to such heartbreaking events,” she said, “and we should all remember Sewol, so that nothing like this happens in the future.”
