The 46th Student Council (President Jung Won-bin, Vice President Park Woong-jin) and the 27th General Girl Student Council (President Choi Eun-mi, Vice President Lee Su-ji) start their official activities from this month.
The Student Council begin the semester by running an educational campaign and several projects for freshmen. In April, they are planning to start a shuttle bus service on a trial basis. The shuttle bus service is for students who live in Gyeonggi-do, who have difficulty commuting to school. They are even pushed back on the priority list of school dormitory, Namsan Residence Hall, because of comparatively short distance. Lim Gyu-ri, who majors in Economics, said, “I live in Goyang and it takes three hours to commute every day. If the shuttle bus service begins, it would be much easier for me to get to school.”
In May, Student Council is going to hold the school festival, the biggest project in the first semester. It also holds spring activities for rural communities and the commemoration of Gwang-ju democratic movement. Jung Won-bin said, “I hope many students to join the spring activities for rural communities which will be meaningful and fun.” Commemoration of the democratic movement takes place in May and June. Student Council plans to hold activities for rural communities during summer break as well.
The General Girl Student Council is planning various programs for all students. On March 8th, to celebrate International Women’s Day, there will be a lecture and campaign around campus. Students can apply for a vaccination against cervical cancer that day. In April, a friendship project will begin. A pair of a senior and a freshman will make one team to accomplish missions. Choi Eun-mi said, “It can be a good chance to make a real friend in your college life.” Throughout the semester, the General Girl Student Council is going to hold seminars about women’s right and “Dongguk Best Tournament” where only female students can participate to play dodge ball.
As new student councils start their term, students have much expectation on them. Jung Ha-yeon, who majors in Law, said, “I hope two student councils will work hard for all students and bring a memorable year to us.”
