During the speech President Kim Hee-ok said, "We will dedicate this building to showing great achievement thanks to your support. Bio Hall, when it is completed by January 2015, will be a powerful and new growth engine."

Kim's speech was followed by Jeongryeon monk’s. Jeongryeon Monk said, "Today is a significant day when another part of Dongguk University history begins. If Bio Hall is completed, Dongguk with a history of 107 years will be ready to make a huge leap forward," adding, "Dongguk will become a university that is a center of technology and research, rather than a general university."

But with the starting of the construction on the Bio Hall, I will do my best in order to make Goyang 'an educational and medical city', 'the happiest city'."
