The purpose of the ceremony was to open the association's new year formally. Another reason was to simply wish everyone good luck. In the past, only 50 or 60 people attended, but this year's ceremony drew people as many as ten times. It began with some powerful cheering from students who held picket-lines and waved placards as they went around campus.
The chairman of the students' association delivered a petition to the president, who accordingly promised to send a quick response. But this didn't materialize. Therefore, Shin Dong-wook, the chairperson, said he would personally re-deliver the petition at the April 14th meeting as a way of making the president fully aware of students' sentiment.
There were two important proposals in the petition. The first was making freely available information about university tuition fee plans; the second asked the university to revise the whole admission management system. This latter demand again reflected very clearly the feelings of the student body.
