The UOS Times interviewed with one of the graduate students, Kang Dong-han (Dept. of Environmental Horticulture, ’11). He said, although it would be great to graduate, he felt worried more. “In these days, there is a great amount of uncertainty on our society. Although I choose to go graduate school, I cannot tell that the way I choose is the right way. But studying in graduate school is what I want, so I will do my best and take responsibility myself.”
