From May 22nd to 25th, the Spring Festival “Kkotkkiri Festival (Flower Festival)” was hosted by the organizations of students on campus.
On the first day of the festival, there were food trucks emulated after “Bamdokkaebi Night Market” trucks and booths with fortunetellers in Paljeongdo and Main Stadium. Food trucks and taro booths were held until the last day of the festival. On the same day, E-SPORTS Championship, which is the final match of League of Legend (LOL) and OVERWATCH, was held by the General Student Council (GSC) in Manhae Square. Four professional game commentators and castors were invited to the final to broadcast the game. The GSC gave free chestnut makeoli (rice wine) out to the students who watched the finals. In the final match of the LOL, the team of the Department of the Food Industry won, and in the OVERWATCH final match, the Lunatic Dongguk team won. Hwang Ji-su (Sophomore, Department of Business Administration) said, “The festival was full of food and attractions, so I was able to relieve my stress.”

From May 23rd to 25th, the General Coed Student Council (GCSC) held a menstrual festival, “Don’t Whisper” in Paljeongdo, to tell the story about the menstruation and women’s body. The students were able to draw various women’s bodies, write about their prejudices towards women and post them on a corset tree in the menstrual festival booth.
Sung Im-eun, the chairperson of the GCSC, said, “The activity students liked the most was to write a declaration of physical self-determination rights. Since the students did not have many chances to think about their rights to their bodies, it seemed to be popular. Also, many students asked to accept the policy of officially approving absence due to menstruation and we are planning to request it to the school during the summer vacation.” In addition, the GCSC showed a movie about abortion and held a tea party that any Donggukians could participate in.
On the third day, the Human Rights Center, DU rights, and the Seoul Jungbu Police Station operated a booth in Palgeongdo to provide counseling regarding the matters of sexual violence and the human rights. In addition, when students gave the right answer to the true or false quiz related to human rights and sexual violence, they received the prizes.
In terms of safety problems, Campus Police took its role during the festival. It was a group of students of the College of Police Administration who were in charge of crime prevention. They patrolled the outskirts of the school throughout the festival and checked whether there were secret cameras in the restrooms in the school buildings.
On the 24th, Joohee and Baekchan (former 8eight), MIND U, Gugudan and Hi-Lite Records performed in the Main Stadium. The next day, HONEYST, DAY6, and WINNER performed. Kim Da-hyeon (Sophomore, Department of Business Administration) who was satisfied with the performances said, “I felt like I came to the concert because there were so many people in the Main Stadium. I could get rid of my stress, while enjoying the performance and singing along with the singers.”
