The first and second joint open hearing were held on November 18th and on the 20th, 7 P.M. at Choheodang Seminar Room. Four candidates with two parties have registered for the next GSC representatives.
The first party is called, “Cider” with Lee Chang-ho, a senior majoring in International Trade as a chairperson candidate, Lee Seung-jun, a junior majoring in Buddhist Studies as a vice chairperson candidate. The next party is called “Hashtag,” with An Dre, a senior majoring in Public Administration as a chairperson candidate and Jo Seong-woo, a junior majoring in Mass communication and Journalism as a vice chairperson candidate.
The first and second open hearings were held, but the agendas remained ambiguous. Lee Chang-ho, from Cider introduced him and his party by stressing, “We will solve out the problems in school and the difficulties students have.” Next, An Dre from Hashtag also introduced himself and his party by saying, “Our party will get closer to students, by sharing thoughts with them.”
The first hearing was divided into five parts, asking candidates’ opinions about five main agendas: uiversity policy and department restructuring, intervention of religious order, student welfare, and student union fee and university tuition.
Both parties showed firm attitudes towards the intervention from religious order. An Dre, said, “Our party will inherit the efforts from 2015, and make a difference.” Lee Seung-jun said, “The power of board of directors is too strong. We will fight against this power.”
Moon Ho-jin, a freshman from the Department of Economics, said that this hearing was rather vague. He stated, “I think that both of them did not prepare specific visions today.”
The second open hearing mainly discussed student welfares. Both teams came up with new scholarship systems. Hashtag presented “The Youth Scholarship” which is to encourage diversity and characteristics of students’ talents. Cider explained revival of lecture top scholarship. For college improvents, team Hashtag wanted to remodel Myengjin Hall and Hyehwa Hall.
