While the University of Seoul is well-known for its cats, they are not the sole four-legged creature living on campus. Meet Nuri, the golden retriever living in the UOS Dormitory. Nuri, the 38 kilogram and 2-year-old dog, is an Animal-Assisted Activities (AAA) therapy animal. One of the main activities this lovable animal participates in is “the Nuri Program.” Being one of the best ways for a student to connect with Nuri, this daily residential college program allows students to take Nuri for a walk around campus. There are mainly three positive effects of this activity. First, it lets Nuri to exercise regularly. Second, it can help students have a healthy emotional state. Finally, it provides an opportunity for Korean students and international students to interact with one another.

In order to participate in the program, one needs to join the Nuri program open chat. This can be done by simply finding the poster for the program at Everytime; an application for campus community, or on campus and reading a Quick Response (QR) code with one’s phone. This program starts at 8 a.m., 6 p.m., and 8 p.m. Also, it goes on for one hour. All of students can be allowed to participate in this program, but participants must participate in the program orientation with professional walking mates, which are allowed to grab Nuri’s leash. Note that these orientations are available every week.

In the morning period, students can take Nuri to Mountain Baebong unless there would be dangerous situations. A course starts from the Dormitory, passes through Joongang-no (the Main Street, translated in English), takes a turn in front of the Main Gate, and finishes back at the Dormitory. During the walk, Nuri enjoys sprinting so you should prepare to run along with him. Also, he might chase down cats so you should prepare to scare off cats before Nuri finds them.

His energetic sprints and eagerness to chase cats will give you the power to start a new day. So, The UOS Times recommend this exciting program with Nuri.
