Since 2000 Dongguk University’s roofs have been getting greener and greener and today all buildings at Dongguk are green. Mission accomplished.
Each roof garden has also many benches and restrooms which provide students with a beautiful view of Namsan and great place to take a rest.
Dongguk’s rooftops are also open to all citizens of Seoul, so anyone living in the city can visit. The path to Namsan has also been restored. In cooperation with the city of Seoul, Dongguk will also change its main stadium and swimming pool into a green park by 2015.
There will be many trails, gazebos and pine trees which symbolize Namsan.
A fellow student at Dongguk said “After the construction of the roof gardens, it has been really nice to breathe fresh air every day. And after hearing of the new parks and their upcoming construction at the school, I can’t wait to see it.”
It’s certain that Dongguk is going green.
