The cafe in the Cheonnong Hall’s first floor
The opening ceremony of a new multifunctional space on the first floor of Cheonnong Hall was held in front of the hall on September 17, at 10:30 a.m. The president of UOS, faculty, students, and nearby residents joined. The new space includes a botanical display, a cafe in a large shipping container, a conference room, a special room for students preparing for entrepreneurial start-ups, available for students by reservation, and a recycling center.

A professor in the Department of Architecture, Sun-young Rieh, was the first person who suggested creating this new space, and for several reasons. One reason was to improve the impression of the school among the public by redesigning the building at the entrance to the campus. Another reason was to contribute to the University’s image as part of a sustainable society.
Visitors and members of the university community can see this image through the botanical showcase at the very front, representing urban agriculture. Plants are actually being grown there, and fresh vegetables from these plants are on sale through a vending machine.

The recycling center sells goods such as clothes and books, and people who want to donate their items can do so here.. Meanwhile, the cafe provides place to meet, rest, and socialize. Professor Rieh intended to help visitors appreciate the real value of recycling and exchange of goods, all while drinking a cup of coffee at the cafe nearby. The interior design of the cafe accompanies the botanical room well, which in turn encourages the intellectual activities of visitors.

This new communication zone is expected to provide many benefits to users. Professor Rieh said, “I expect this space to be a great place offering support to students in their own activities, and it will make Cheonnong Hall more vital. In this place, students discussing their plans for start-ups, collaborating on research, and sharing social agendas will be facilitated. These are things that UOS is aiming for, thus contributing to stronger connections with the local community as a public university.” This brand-new space is open to everyone from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays.
