Martin Mrzyglod (Dept. Korean Studies & Chinese Studies, Junior, Exchange Student)

Participating in MT (Membership Training) was the most precious memory in my freshman year. I would definitely attend there again because it is a great chance to get to know new colleagues in your department. Activities that German students do are similar with those in Korean MT: playing games, and drinking beverages. Making new friends is advisable to all students because they will help you adapt to new school life and make it more fun. Having many acquaintances also supports your social life after you graduate from the university. I encourage KNU freshmen to get involved in many club activities and to get to know various new people.

 

Nelli Bohm (Business Administration, Junior, Exchange Student)

Being an exchange student in KNU, I was able to take part in many vigorous activities. The most memorable event was to participate in a global camp where I could see the traditional cultures of Korea. I recommend freshmen of KNU to actively search for international programs such as Buddy or Tutor where you can experience different cultures and practice language skills. When I was a freshman, it was essential to apply for some internship. In my opinion, students in KNU should sign up for internships rather than just take classes. Internships related to your major help you a lot when you get a job. I have wonderful memories of being a freshman, including doing a part time job in an office, so I wouldn’t change anything.

 

Kim, Jun-hyeong (Dept. Polymer Science and Engineering, Senior)

I have done what freshmen dream of in terms of being a college student: traveling, part-time job, and clubs. I do not have much regret of my freshman year because I gained many valuable lessons. Freshmen are likely to have more time for extracurricular activities and more support from their parents than their seniors. So I would like to advise those freshmen to start participating in challenging activities as soon as possible. However, one should indulge in a chosen activity rather than perfunctorily filling up a member list. Instead of actively searching for my place in the club, I passively waited for someone to lead me. Therefore, I think it is essential to be active and constant.

 

Lee Han-youl (Dept. German Literature and Language, Sophomore)

When I was a freshman, I remember touring the country. Because I could release my stress and meet many people, it was a great experience. However I feel regret about not controlling my freedom when I was suddenly given free time. I think we should play moderately while doing valuable work. Furthermore, I think we have forgotten the preciousness of our parents in these days by dedicating ourselves to studying. Thus, I recommend you to feel that preciousness through experiencing a part-time job and volunteer activities for rural communities.

 

Seong Yu Geong (Dept. Business administration, Sophomore)

If I could go back to my freshman days, I would study hard by following a study plan. Although both studying and playing are good for freshmen, you should play at doing something helpful and worthwhile to you. By saving time during the semester, I am now able to go on the ‘Global Challenger’ program during the winter vacation and I feel really great about this. I also joined the band in my department. Because I could learn new instruments like the keyboard and synthesizer, it was a good experience.

 

Shaosong Feng (Dept. Mechanical Engineering, Junior, China)

If I went back to my freshman year I would make a plan ahead and study hard. I recommend you to go to the library as the best place to study. However, if you fail at registering for courses, you can get bad credits and can fail to get a scholarship. Therefore, signing up for courses prudently.  Furthermore, joining a club and meeting various friends and upper class mates who can be great advisors in your life is important. If you cannot decide which club to join, choose clubs related to your hobbies.
