Dongguk Univeristy’s General Student Council (GSC) recently sponsored new student communication projects at both Bio-medical and Seoul Campus. On September 22nd, the GSC visited the Bio-medical Campus (BMC) for the Doran-Doran Project. Following this, the GSC also held Underclass Project in the Seoul Campus. Both of the projects originated from the GSC’s goal which is to hear and respect students’ opinions by making a visit on campus in person.
On September 22nd, the Chairperson of the GSC, Choi Kwang-baek, and Vice Chairperson, Kim Geon-jung of the General Student Council stayed in the Bio-medical Campus for Doran-Doran from 12 to 2:00 P.M. While this project has been done on the Seoul Campus several times in the spring semester, it was the first time at the BMC. There was an opinion among students that it is the students in BMC who really need the opportunity for this communication, since they may feel isolated. Doran-Doran was held on the second floor lobby of the campus, with the Chairperson and Vice Chairperson ready to hear from Donggukians. They prepared sticky notes which the students can write their opinions on and put it on a plastic board that is set on an easel, as well as drinks to encourage and thank the participants. Approximately seventy students showed their interest in the project.
On the same day, the GSC ran Underclass on the third floor of Engineering Building from 4 to 6:00 P.M. The main purpose was to collect extensive opinions from students who are likely to be in the dead zone of the welfare and communication system due to their academics. Those who are majoring in computer, electrical electronics, and telecommunication engineering mostly stay inside of building due to the demands of their major which require a lot of time in laboratories. The Chairperson, Vice Chairperson, and the director and member of the Network Department visited places with questionnaire, catalog that shows the GSC’s plans and processes, and drinks. They heard opinions of more than seventy engineering major students in the building. Kim Dae-in, a student representative of electrical electronics engineering, said, “I appreciate the GSC to visit, hear, and encourage students while they may have been busy with their own work. They did something that no previous student council did, and I support them for their effort.” After projects were over, Chairperson Choi said, “A lot of students, more than we expected, actively shared their opinions with the GSC. We did realize the importance of promoting the student council’s plans once again through these two projects.
