An old man has returned to the UOS as a student in 1999. His name is Yi Deuk-woo, and he is 68 years old. He entered the school for the first time in 1956. In other words, his `hockbon` was 56. His major is `Civil Engineering` now and he will graduate next year.

Have you met any old friends from school? Isn`t there any acquaintance who recognizes you?
"Nope. I have not met anyone from my old school days. My professors already retired and I heard one of my classmates became a professor in other school."

When did you quit school? And why?
"I dropped out in my sophomore year. At that time I was in military service. However, I did not take legal steps for resigning from the school. My name was erased from the enrollment. For a long time I have wanted to come back, but there was no way to restart. In the 90`s the UOS lightened the requirements; admitting those who wanted a second chance for graduation like me. That is how I could attend school now."

What made you decide to come back to the UOS? It must have been a hard decision to start studying over at your age.
"A ctually my son persuaded me to achieve the degree. He prepared all the documents and tuition for me to reenter. My good daughter-in-law supported it, too.?"

Do you have any certain reason to choose this major, `Civil Engineering`?
"I have studied in Dept. of Agricultural Engineering, which is similar to Civil Engineering. To my luck, my credits could be approved which I obtained during my old days in the UOS."

What did you do for a living before being an old student?
"After I was discharged from the military, I worked for the rural government. Then I had started my construction business, dealing with landed estate."

What do you plan to do after graduation?
"I`ll return to my business. But I`m interested in topography. I have read a lot of books about it. I`d like to write a book about traveling around environment, configuration and ecology after some travelling around my country."
