Candidates of Dongteum emphasized the necessity of the General Coed Student Council (GCSC).

In respect with expenditures for experimentation and practical training paid by students in some colleges, HIFIVE party brought up this problem. They clarified the problem by citing examples which shows that the tuition fees for some departments’ experiments with similar frequency are different. Yoon Yeong-ji, the vice-chairperson candidate of HIFIVE party proposed a solution saying, “Students should have the right to vote on using expenses for experimentation and practical training. In addition, we have the plan to demand for an explanation from the school why tuition fees for different departments with similar experimental ratios are different one another.
Really; D party emphasized that there are lecture rooms which are not fully utilized at BMC. Woo Dong-hee of Really; D party said, “There are not many classes in a lecture room which is built with support from ACE business. This classroom is for students, however it is not fully utilized by students.” He explained that Really; D party will ask the school to use these classrooms in the way students want. They will continue to ask the school to change the use of the lecture room.
