Graduation Ceremony of 2018

The Winter Graduation Ceremony of 2018 was held in the Main Auditorium on Feb. 22, 2019. The ceremony started with an introduction of the invited guests from the university. President Won Yun-hi and the Chairman Shin Weon Chul Seoul Metropolitan Council then delivered commencement speeches. There were 1,278 Bachelor degrees, 438 Master degrees, and 62 Doctor degrees awarded in total.

As President Won addressed in his speech, “learning is one of the virtues that you have to maintain for the rest of your life. For those students headed into society, the education that you have gained throughout this university will be a valuable seed that will help you grow in the future.” Furthermore, he added, “we are living in an era of rapid technological change and students have to adapt to this environment based on the knowledge you have learned. Within this environment, graduates will be provided with new opportunities to move upwards.”

Also, the Head of the Seoul Metropolitan Council, Shin Weon Chul, said “it is not easy to take one’s first steps in society. Especially in Korea, there is infinite competition within each social segment.” Moreover, he quoted a J.K Rowling speech given at Harvard that encouraged graduates to “use your position and influence on behalf of those who cannot speak with their own voice and develop the power of empathizing with the pain of others.” He ended his speech by saying that you should not “just look forward. You should also look around and look back in order to become a warm person.”

The graduation ceremony started at 11a.m. and lasted about one hour. With mild weather and spring approaching, a new journey is ahead for these new graduates.
