In Korea, sports day is a major event especially in elementary and sometimes in middle schools as well. It is a time when you get to gather with your friends and families and compete in various events, away from the overloaded and stressful studies. Surprisingly, there are even sports days in universities as well, as if to bring back the good old memories but on a larger scale.
Han Jang-hun, the department’s student president, was happy to say how this year’s sports week was a relative success. “As the student council, we always hope more students will participate and get to fully enjoy this annual event. This year, about twice as many students participated than last year. We have a separate league for main sports such as soccer and basketball, so for sports week, we were able to include other types of sports that people normally don’t do. For categories that aren’t as popular, there was a lower registration fee, whereas for more popular sports, we had to set the bar higher so that it won’t get too crowded.”
Of course, there were definitely some hardships as well as that involved hundreds of participants. “Although it’s a good thing that more students participated this year, it was consequently harder to set a comprehensive game schedule. Also, because less student fees were collected this year, there was a limitation in how much we could give for prizes."
