It is typical of a university student to be in a neat vest, with a bulky volume in his or her arms and the smiling face under the sunshine. At another side of that, a white-haired old person walks slowly to take a lesson in Continuing Education Center. Children in a yellow uniform and with a hat toddle in a line following their kindergartener. And mothers enjoy their free time at the Gymnasium, after children go to school. High school students leave the Main Library carrying an armful of books.
It is difficult to enter the university in front of one? house. All the people living at Shillim-dong do not enroll Seoul National University. The probability of its coming true may be like winning in a lottery. But examination is not the only way to make the university located near his or her house.

It should improve its role until it can contribute toward the people? life more mentally and physically. Then, where does the UOS set the foot on?
