Dept. of International Relations, ’17
A school’s reputation rests on how well-adapted her students are in making, or trying to make a meaningful impact on society. However, Korean students nowadays lack both the motivation and insight to do so. Therefore, I wanted to help trigger their interest in a variety of issues by writing articles that would be capable of enhancing their critical-thinking and assisting them in making top-tier decisions. It has been just a few weeks since I assumed the role of a cub reporter. I am still devoid of expertise, but will nonetheless continue accumulating experience and technique in writing thought-provoking articles.
Dept. of Environmental Horticulture, ’16
Thanks to The UOS Times, I was given an opportunity to express my thoughts into printed words. That is a privilege not given just to anyone. I hope to make the best and most out of this, not just for the sake of mine but others’ such as the readers and peer reporters, too.
Dept. of Chinese Language and Culture, ’17
After life as an exchange student in Lisbon, I regretted that I could not use more English and I wanted to keep using English when I came back to Korea. I found out The UOS Times and I thought it will be a great opportunity. At first, it was a shame to read my own article and see how much I lacked. But with competent editors’ help, I could learn more and gain confidence. I still have a lot to learn so I will work hard from now on to be a good editor.
Dept. of Urban Administration, ’19
I wanted to join The UOS Times with an indescribable feeling. Perhaps, it felt like something what I had to do. I have written a short interview feature so far, but it still does not feel real. The more articles I write, the more realistic my role will become. The position of a cub reporter may seem to be that kind of thing. I have written two articles so far, both of which were short articles, but I realized a lot of my inadequacies. I will learn a lot and try to become a reporter who at least does my part.
Dept. of Urban Sociology, ’17
Let us be honest. Not a lot of students are interested in our school’s news outlets. I have rarely seen a student reading any newspaper on our campus. However, there is not much for me to solve this situation. All I can do is make sure that my article delivers information that people need to know and present it with adequate expressions. This is my goal while I work as a reporter for The UOS Times.
