After several sleepless nights of studying, final exams are over at universities, and students are greeting their winter breaks. This also means that those who applied to and took exams to enter Hanyang University are receiving either acceptance or rejection letters. Two new freshmen of Hanyang University who are to enter the school in 2017, Kim Ye-hwan (Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Engineering) and Shin Ho-joong (Department of Computer Science and Engineering), had a discourse session with their seniors, Jung Da-eun (Department of Media and Communication, 3rd year), Park Yoo-kyung (Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Engineering, 2nd year), and Won Chang-hee (Department of Computer Science and Engineering, 4th year) and shared their expectations and worries about their upcoming university life.

 
Q1. What are your expectations of university life? What are you curious about?


Ye-hwan: I am definitely looking forward to getting one of those department jackets. I have seen a lot of students wear them and I was jealous. Now that I am accepted into Hanyang University, I’m excited to get my own.

Ho-joong: Oh, yes. Additionally, I also thought of working on group projects with my friends overnight. To me, that sounds fun. But I heard some people aren't cooperative and are hard to deal with. I have big concerns about that.

Da-eun: Actually, there are so many different types of people and it really just depends on who you team up with. It all differs case by case.

Ye-hwan: What about making friends? How do you get close with people? I can't drink and I'm worried that not being able to drink will get in the way of socializing with people.

Yoo-kyung: You really don’t need to worry about that much, because nobody will force you to drink. There will be a lot of occasions for you to socialize with people and you just need to have a lot of conversations to get to know them and become friends. Even if you go to a social gathering, you wouldn't be pressured to drink. It's all at your will!

Chang-hee: I bet you guys are wondering about campus romance. It once was my dream, too. When I first entered university, I was awakened by reality because in engineering departments, the majority of students are guys. Nonetheless, you can still become campus couples if you join clubs or go to a lot of gatherings.

Q2. What were your biggest interests as a high school student? What influenced you to choose your major?

Ho-joong: I used to play computer games very often since I was in elementary school. One day, my account was hacked and I was frustrated. I think that was the moment that made me spark an interest in computer science. I want to be skillful with computers so that I can protect my private accounts and prevent such mishaps. Nowadays, my interest is mostly on software and security systems.

Ye-hwan: I didn't know what I was interested in, so when I entered high school, I was a bit lost. But I soon developed an interest in natural environment, and I was certain that I didn't belong in the humanities field. This is why I applied to the Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Engineering.


Q3. Any ideas on choosing what to eat within or near the campus?


Ho-joong: High school food was so-so. What about university cafeterias?

Chang-hee: Food isn't so bad here. Since our campus is situated on a pretty steep hill, you will often feel reluctant to go down the campus just for lunch. If you do, then it is a long way back for most students. That is why I mostly prefer to go to school cafeterias. There are several school cafeterias throughout the campus and they aren't that bad. Most importantly, the price is reasonable and it saves you a lot of time and money if you eat in school cafeterias.

Da-eun: Also, if you are a freshman, your seniors will treat you to lunch more than often. I don't remember paying for my own lunch when I was a freshman. I always had friendly seniors who treated me to nice lunches. In other words, you don't need to worry too much about looking for good places to eat around the campus. If you follow them around several times, you'll get an idea of where to eat.

Yoo-kyung: If you are tired of school cafeterias, and are too lazy to go outside the campus, order some delivery food. It's very convenient and tasty.

Q4. What do you like about Hanyang University?

Ho-joong: I like how the subway is connected to the campus. I think that is the best advantage I have found so far.

Yoo-kyung: Yes, definitely. The subway makes our lives so much easier and more convenient.

Chang-hee: I also agree. Since our campus is big, you can find nice views here and there. The night view around the Humanities Building is especially remarkable.

Ye-hwan: I think the school logo is impressive. The word ‘Hanyang’ in Korean, forming the the school’s mascot lion, is absolutely brilliant.


Q5. Lastly, any other questions to ask?

Ye-hwan: What are some recommendable clubs to join?

Da-eun: There will be a few times throughout the school year when all the clubs promote themselves and recruit new members. As you'll see, there are a lot of different clubs that do various things. You can join as much as you can handle.

Ho-joong: Are there any tips on making friends?

Chang-hee: As long as you embrace the differences between you and your peers, you will have no trouble getting close to them. Similarly, you shouldn't feel too burdened about your seniors. Just try to be comfortable around them and your peers, and you'll be fine.
 
After the discourse, they are cheering for their upcoming semester.
