The University of Seoul (UOS) has implemented some new book programs. These programs have been implemented under the title “An encounter with the books UOS is reading” and they are as part of the ACE Business Program. The purpose of these programs is to provide an opportunity to UOS students to read books and help them participate in creative activities related to these books. Two major events were held.
The first was an essay contest about a book.

Recently, professors from UOS recommended 100 books from various fields to UOS students. 10 books were chosen among this list for the essay contest. A few weeks before the contest, participants in this essay contest chose one of the 10 designated books, and then the participants wrote an essay about the book they read, including some terms that UOS provided. Prize money was provided to the winners, and they received opportunities to travel to the countries of the authors of the books they chose (the traveling part is at the planning stage and has not yet been decided). An anonymous participant said, “I learned about these great books through this contest. Perhaps I will refer to the list of the recommended 100 books when I choose the books next time.”

The second representative program has been a reading community program. UOS students have made teams including three to five members. Eight teams have been selected as outstanding reading teams based on their proposals, and these teams each take two weeks to read a book and have weekly meetings about it. Each team can decide how to organize its meetings. The activities are progressing throughout this semester, and the winners will be rewarded prizes in December, based on the quality of their activities. Through this program, students are reading books steadily and remembering the content of them more effectively. Park Eun-ji (Dept. of English Language and Literature, ’17), one of the members of JEJE (one of the outstanding reading communities), said, “The reading community program is meaningful because several people read the books together. Sharing opinions about the books with other people was very different than simply thinking about the books by myself. Through this activity, I learned to convey my opinions logically and accept others’ opinions critically.”

In addition, a special lecture by Lee Kwon-woo, a book reviewer, and the Korean classical literature reading program have also been implemented as part of this greater program. Students can check the detailed notice about these programs on the UOS website (
