From August 16th to 29th, for 14 days, and 13 nights, the UOS sponsored the special program, `the International Summer School for Foreign Students.` The UOS invited 24 students representing 6 universities from four different countries. The daily program for 11 days was divided into two parts, in the morning and the evening. Starting from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., they toured famous sites in Seoul, Korea, learned the Korean language, visited the Korean National Museum, went shopping at Dongdaemun and did many other special activities.
After their morning schedule was over, they spent their evening times with the UOS student group, called the International Promotional Helpers(IPH). From many volunteers, 24 UOS students were selected to get acquainted with the foreign students and publicize Korea to them. On August 26th and 27th, the foreign students stayed at the houses of several UOS students. Most of them were pleased with their stay at the students` houses. And the UOS students, also, had great time which gave them more than they had expected. It was the first time that this kind of program was held by the UOS, and they will continue it in the future with their plans to enlarge the participating number of students, universities, and countries.
However, above all the unusual and great experiences with the foreign students, the UOS students were sorry that there was not more time to spend with the foreign students.
