After K-SAT, senior high school students will be looking for universities they can apply to. Maybe you have seen high school students who came to our school to have an essay test or an interview. This reminded me of the year when I desperately searched for colleges that I could apply to, based on my effort and K-SAT score. I think that most high school students work so hard studying to get into universities and that they get accepted to the universities that they deserve as a result of our academic ability and effort. However, there was an EXCEPTION. Surprisingly, one student (a daughter of the President’s friend) got into a college by just showing a GOLDEN MEDAL which should not have been approved.
According to the definition of a democratic nation, this society should give a FAIR result only to students who have worked hard and who have actual talents. Now, that definition has become useless. The candle lights of about 1,000,000 people have been evidence for the nation’s anger at the destruction of democracy and showed the will to get back OUR COUNTRY from people who manipulated the nation.
It is quite a hopeless situation now. However, we cannot just stand back and watch helplessly how events will unfold. Many students and professors had a declaration of the state and lit a light for the resignation of the President. We, The UOS Times, will promise to show our fellow students the facts and support every protest or activity for regaining democracy.
In our 141st issue of The UOS Times, in People we interviewed a travel author, Si-nae Ahn, who will inspire you to go traveling. If you are worried about going abroad or annoyed at making plans, then how about stopping by a cozy cafe around Seoul? We visited several cafe streets in Seoul for your warm and comfortable tea time. In Focus on UOS, we interviewed two Kazakhstan students to find out more about L.N.Gumilyov Eurasian National University as very few students of UOS have been there as an exchange student. Also Beverage Heals, a students’ central club, will show you some easy and delicious recipes of cocktails. On heavier subjects, the Cover Story looks at the current situation of sharing our campus with citizens. Our Society article investigated how much food we are wasting and what environmental problems we are making. In our Review section we reviewed V for Vendetta which COINCIDENTALLY overlapped with our current POLITICAL ISSUE. Isn’t it appealing to you?
As Christmas is just around the corner, we will show the history of Christmas and several special foods you cannot find in Korea. It is a little bit early to say this, but fellows, Merry Christmas and thanks for reading our articles. We hope we will be lighting a candle for our family on Christmas, with democracy restored.
