UOS dispatched 28 students to Laos for the 2017 Global Volunteer Program, Jan. 7 to 14. It was the 11th year of the program. The volunteers, who represented various departments, visited an elementary school in Vang Vieng.

Volunteer activities included education and facility maintenance. Students were divided into three teams, and each team Korean language, Taekwondo, and art. Also, students repaired some of the facilities in the elementary school, including painting of walls, construction of a playground, installation of fans in the classrooms, and maintenance of walls in the schoolyard. After the volunteers completed their tasks, they participated in the school’s field day on Jan. 15. During this event, the students of UOS and the elementary school together participated in several workouts such as jumping-rope and dodge ball. They also carried placards with the message, “Congratulations to UOS on its 100th anniversary.” Finally, UOS students took three days to experience a bit of the culture of Laos.

Kim Sun-yeong, one of the administrators of the university’s Social Contribution Team, said, “Preparation for global volunteering is very hard. However, all of the students said that it was a great opportunity to for them to reflect on themselves and their lives. I hope many students apply for the next global volunteer program this summer.”
