[Policy]ERICA Students Take Action to Revitalize Gyeonggi-do Local Business Districts

Hanyang University ERICA Campus, along with five other universities, is striving to revitalize local business districts in Gyeonggi-do. As a result of the Local Business District-University Cooperation Project selection council held by the Gyeonggi-do Market Commercial Promotion Agency on July 15, where participants included market development experts and professors of colleges of arts, it was announced that they will support the revitalization of local business districts with six universities in the province. The Local Business District-University Cooperation Project started last year along with the Local Business District Organization Service that the 7th local election in Gyeonggi-do is carrying out, and has the goal of developing a beautiful and unique local business district related to arts and design, in collaboration with universities. The universities selected for this project are Hanyang University ERICA Campus, Kyunghee University, Kaywon University of Art and Design, Kyungdong University, Daejin University, and Shinhan University, a total of six schools. Each university will be provided with 25 million won for business expenses to facilitate the self-perpetuating ability of local business districts. This year’s selected projects displayed unique ideas from students and were highly evaluated in terms of commercial district association, ripple effect, and feasibility. Hanyang University ERICA Campus will begin its cooperation hotline with Ansan's University Merchant Association and the ERICA Merchant Association, create a logo composite mark, and produce promotion video clips to revitalize business districts near the university as local community representative attractions. Gyeonggi-do intended funds to circulate within the local business districts by proving some of the student activity expenses in Gyeonggi local currency which is only allowed to use in Gyeonggi district. This year, the activity expenses have been doubled from last year to allow students to stay longer and work together in local business districts. Cho Jang-seok, director of the small business department said that “it is significant that local university students and merchants are coming together to identify the problems of local business districts and trying to solve them together,” and that “this project will be a stepping stone to gradually expanding the services of revitalized local business districts.” Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Park Gyeong-min

[Student]ERICA Orchestra "Angelus" with Sounds from the Heavens

"Let's explore ANGELUS, a group of ERICA students that love music more than any others."  Q. What kind of a group is ANGELUS? A. ANGELUS means The Sound of the Heavens. It is an inter-university amateur orchestra under the Office of Student Affairs, where students who love music are gathered. Place of birth, age, gender, and living environments of the students are different, but they are still becoming one in the name of music, creating one beautiful voice.  Q. If it's an orchestra, it seems that the major activities would be playing instruments. Is that correct? A. There are annual concerts held every March and September for outdoor activities. There are other small activities meant to build friendships among the students, such as a founding celebration and other small concerts. Moreover, the ANGELUS orchestra is closely connected with other universities. To help the concerts of other universities, we participate in others' concerts as guest members and also invite guest members from other schools as well. Other than that, we also participate actively in events such as support concerts for the Office of Student Affairs, the Ansan Flashmob Concert, tutoring the Haeyang Middle School Orchestra, and other events within the school.  Q. How is ANGELUS constructed? A. There is an executive branch that takes care of overall administration work. Orche-group takes care of orchestra activities, and acts an advisory group that seeks to help or take on the role of middle man for a better operation of the orchestra. The executive branch mainly deals with administrative work, concerts and events, accounting, and student management. Orche-group is composed of section leaders that aim to make the best ensembles by directing the ensembles, delivering music scores, and taking care of each member's part. The instruments can be changed according to the members, but generally, in the string section there are violins, violas, cellos, contrabasses, and in the woodwind section there are flutes, clarinets, oboes, trumpets, trombones, and horns. Q. Since it is a group playing instruments, do you need to have basic playing skills? A. More than the skills of playing the instruments, the desire to play the instruments is more vital. Some people even started reading musical notes for the first time in their lives after entering ANGELUS. But they were full of passion for learning how to play the instruments, and all members gave great help. In the end, we were able to create beautiful sounds together. Q. How do you prepare for concerts? A. Dividing the year into two parts, we select which songs to play at a meeting. Usually, we select 1 or 2 overtures and a concerto to play in the first half of the concert select a symphony for the second half, and choose an encore song for the end of the concert. Taking the last concert as an example, we prepared Beethoven's Coriolan Overture and Mendelssohn's Final's Cave for the first half, and Beethoven: Symphony No. 7 for the second half. For the encore song, we prepared James Bond 007 in an orchestra version. Once the songs are selected, we start the ensemble. It is usually done once a week, about two and a half hours to three hours, excluding two weeks during exam periods. Once vacation starts after the semester ends, we start focusing more on the ensemble. The director comes every week to lead the ensemble, and we increase the number of practices to twice a week. Once the semester starts again, we practice almost daily, or every other day, to prepare for the upcoming concert. We usually hold the concert within two or three weeks of the start of the semester. Q. When does ANGELUS recruit new members? A. We are not able to have active events due to COVID-19 for now, but we are always recruiting members. Usually, registration can be done by contacting the president or vice-president, or through the Facebook page. It is also okay to visit the orchestra room directly. Also, we open a recruitment booth every March and September, so please visit if you have any interest. Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Won-young

[Faculty]Professor Yeh Sang-wook, Awarded for Climate Change Research

Professor Yeh Sang-wook, from the Department of Marine Sciences and Convergent Technology at the ERICA campus, awarded for 'Researcher of the Month' by Ministry of Science and ICT. The Ministry of Science and ICT and its Research Foundation stated that Professor Yeh received this award for identifying the cause behind the increase in tropical precipitation in the Pacific region due to the increase in carbon dioxide, and for providing the basis for the increase in meteorological and climate change. ▲ Professor Yeh Sang-wook (Source: Ministry of Science and ICT) Professor Yeh is a natural scientist who has been suggesting ways to solve future problems in regards to the climate by finding out the cause behind climate change and extensively studying meteorological changes, climate change, and how fine dust can affect the climate. He said that as the increase in carbon dioxide has had a great impact on global climate change, many researchers have been trying to figure out the impact of human activity on the global climate. Tropical precipitation is one of the topics that has long been studied in the field of earth science because it acts as an energy source for global air circulation. Professor Yeh suggested a new approach to the precipitation structure in tropical regions by predicting future climates in an atmosphere where the concentration of carbon dioxide has more than doubled since the period before the Industrial Revolution, through climate model experiments. The analysis showed that the precipitation levels in the western Pacific region had increased in all experiments with increased carbon dioxide concentration levels. Additionally, it has been identified that the Walker Circulation and the Hadley Circulation, which are the region’s major atmospheric circulations, are regulators that determine precipitation increase. He also presented to the climatological community that structural differences in atmospheric circulation must be considered to grasp the detailed changes of tropical climates during global warming, and published related findings from his research in the March 2019 issue of Nature Communications. Professor Yeh said, “This study is meaningful because it suggests that the Walker Circulation and the Hadley Circulation in the tropical region play the role of regulators in determining the detailed changes in the precipitation structure of the region due to the increase in regional carbon dioxide levels. We hope that this study will help us predict future changes in water circulation and abnormal meteorological/climate changes around the world.” Meanwhile, the Science and Technology Personnel of the Month Award was established to discover and reward those who have contributed to the development of science and technology in the way of excellent research findings, to boost scientists’ morale and to spread the scientific and technological mindset to the general public. The recipients of the award receive the Minister Award from the Ministry of Science and ICT and 10 million won in prize money. Visit [Hanyang Wiki] for more information: hyu.wiki/이달의_과학기술인상 , hyu.wiki/예상욱 ** The following is the full interview released by the Ministry of Science and ICT in a press release. Released in 2006, the documentary The Inconvenient Truth was enough to raise mankind’s awareness of global warming. Fourteen years after 2006, in the year 2020, the industries of the future promise a richer future for mankind with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, but the uncomfortable truth facing the global environment has not yet been resolved. Professor Yeh Sang-wook from Hanyang University stresses that “having an interest in environmental changes is the most important thing that one can and should do." He is a natural scientist who observes the earth’s mysterious natural environments and explores the characteristics of various meteorological/climate variabilities and the causes behind such phenomena. His research, which started with an investigation into the El Niño effect, has expanded to establish the correlation between the heatwave, which is South Korea’s unusual weather condition during the summer, oceanic variabilities which occur every 10 years or more, and also the correlation between fine dust and atmospheric circulation. Climate change is a global phenomenon and the most international field of research because it requires a comprehensive understanding of the global environmental system in which the oceans and the atmosphere interact and have an influence on each other. We met Professor Yeh Sang-wook, who works under the motto, “The most effective prescription begins with a definite diagnosis” by putting out his best effort to try to predict the global environment and climate’s future and to read changes to the global climate that may occur based on his climate model that helps him make assumptions under various scenarios. Congratulations on receiving the Science and Technology Personnel of the Month Award. - I feel like I am undeserving of this award. First of all, I would like to thank my fellow senior and junior researchers for giving me this opportunity to conduct good research together. I was able to get a lot of help and ideas by constantly interacting with my fellow researchers. Because of this, I was able to produce good results. I would also like to express my gratitude to the Korean Meteorological Society for recommending me to become the recipient of this month’s Science and Technology Personnel Award. The concentration levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere are increasing, which also has a significant impact on the El Niño effect and climate change. What made you interested in researching the El Niño effect and climate change? - The El Niño effect was the topic for my doctoral thesis and is still what I mainly focus on as my central research theme. During my Ph.D. program, I started to extensively research the El Niño effect as I conducted a climate prediction model study with an El Niño simulation. The El Niño is confined to the tropical central and eastern Pacific region, but its impact has reached a global scale. Therefore, it is essential to understand the El Niño effect to understand the various meteorological/climate variabilities around the world. Please introduce your major research on meteorological/climate changes. - To make it simple, my research is focused on understanding the characteristics of various meteorological/climate variabilities observed on Earth today and the causes behind such phenomena. The phenomena that I am interested in vary from the extreme summer weather observed in our country, the heatwave, to ocean variabilities that have been occurring for more than a decade. And I want to analyze and understand how these conditions will alter the future of climate change. Recently, you have identified the atmospheric circulation characteristics which regulate the tropical precipitation changes in the Pacific region due to the increase in the atmospheric CO2 concentration levels, in other words, the regional changes in the two atmospheric circulation levels in the tropics are modulators that affect tropical precipitation. Please introduce the major parts of your research. - Tropical precipitation is an energy source that causes global meteorological/climate variability. So, understanding the changes in precipitation levels in the tropics, especially in the Pacific region, is the basis for understanding the global water circulation and various atmospheric-ocean systems. Through this study, we were able to find that with the increase in carbon dioxide concentrations, precipitation levels increase in the western Pacific region. Whether the carbon dioxide levels were doubled, tripled, or quadrupled, the precipitation levels in the Western Pacific region still increased. Additionally, the tropical region’s major atmospheric circulations, the Walker Circulation, and the Hadley Circulation were found to be the regulators that were responsible for determining the increase in precipitation levels. It is very important to understand future changes in precipitation levels in this region because precipitation in the Western Pacific Region of the tropics is a place that directly or indirectly affects water circulation or abnormal weather/climate in East Asia, including South Korea. You have analyzed and predicted changes in the atmosphere using various climate models. Please explain to us how one can study the changes in the atmospheric and marine environments, which are nature’s greatest phenomena. - The most essential tools for studying the changes in the atmospheric and marine environments are climate models. This is because we are unable to do any direct experiments on the atmosphere or the ocean that we encounter every day. Computer programs that reflect complex physical equations behind what governs such natural phenomena can help us predict atmospheric and oceanic motions. This computer program is a climate model. Through climate models, one can understand how the atmospheric and marine environments change by assuming various scenarios that may occur on Earth in the future. June 5th is World Environment Day. The importance of the oceans and the atmospheric environment is being emphasized worldwide. What do climate change researchers predict the future of Earth's climate will be like? Do you have anything that you want to suggest to the people of South Korea? - I can say for sure that if there is one topic that people should be concerned about in the future, climate change is exactly that. Imagine a scenario where the economy has boomed and great scientific discoveries have been made, and therefore human life has become richer. Even in such scenarios, if climate change occurs drastically, humans will not be able to survive. It’s easy to understand here about why we should be even more concerned about climate change than any other problem. Even if I don’t talk about my research findings, it is evident that the climate of our planet is changing fast and rapidly. Above all, I think the most important thing that we can do at this time is to pay attention to the changing environment. When every citizen pays constant attention to environmental problems, I think that policy can then be enforced and therefore encourage a change in everyone’s behavior. As climate change is a global phenomenon, it seems that there is a need for us to communicate and cooperate with researchers from around the world and that we need to pay attention to several research findings so that the results of our research on climate change can be reflected in the international community and social policies. - I think the most important task that needs to be done here is to understand the various phenomena that are currently happening around us and to identify the causes behind them. When the exact causes are identified, appropriate policies can then be established. Above all, climate change is a global phenomenon, so reasearch has to be an international effort. More than in any other field of study, in ours there is a more active collaboration amongst researchers from around the world. Before being appointed as a professor at Hanyang University, you worked as a Staff Weather Officer (SWO), a post-doctoral researcher at the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmospheric Studies (COLA) in the United States, and also as a researcher at a government-funded research institute. I think that such experiences would have been the basis for what strengthened your research competitiveness. - Yes, that is correct. During my time as an SWO, I learned what the actual demands of the military were, and from this, I learned that the most important subject of a research project should be the most realistic one. Through my post-doctoral research in the United States and my experience as a researcher at a government-funded research institute, I was able to think about the importance of joint research and the kind of research that South Korea needs. Along with creative research, you have also put a lot of effort into fostering great minds. As a researcher or teacher, what is the emphasis that you put on your students or the members at your lab? - Well, I’m not so sure. What I say to my students and lab members is quite common and ordinary. I just say, “Do your best.” I emphasize that they should always choose to give their best efforts, and not to become the best. Of course, it’s good to be the best, but not everyone can be the best. But everyone can try their best. When one makes their best efforts, they can be the best, and even if they don't become the best, they will still be able to live a life without any regrets. What is your usual attitude towards life as a researcher (your basic philosophy of life)? - The most important attitude that a researcher should have over everything else is to never lose interest. In particular, natural scientists who study the nature of the Earth should feel: ‘How mysterious and strange natural phenomena are!', and I think that having this kind of view and perspective towards any research would make it interesting to study any other subject. What is a challenge that you ultimately want to overcome in your research field? - My ultimate challenge seems to be to accurately predict the future. If we can predict the future changes in weather and climate conditions that we experience every day with some accuracy, we can then share such benefits globally. Please leave a word of advice to students who dream of becoming scientists in the future. - Science bears many interesting and mysterious fruits. Also, such fruits can give many people great benefits. If you’re dreaming of becoming a scientist, you first need to train yourself to be observant of those around you. Scientists must also have the eye to see the other side of phenomena. You can’t have such an eye automatically. You need to have a habit of constantly observing and looking at the phenomena that occur around you, especially those that occur in nature. This habit will help you grow into becoming a great scientist. Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr Translation by: Lee Jung-joo

[Student]"Hanyang's Love for Culture" at ERICA Campus

▲ The 16th Hanyang Culture Supporters Q. Please introduce Hanyang Culture Supporters to us. A. Hanyang Culture Supporters is an official organization affiliated with the Student Administration that plans, supervises, and hosts several cultural events in order to create ERICA campus’ very own specialized culture. We help the students to stay energized by hosting various events every Wednesday, a day of the week that many students can agree is like a "slump day" for them. Through these events, we help the students stay more energized so that they can devote themselves to their studies throughout the entire week. We are always working hard to make sure that the students of ERICA Campus are enjoying a happy campus life. Q. What kind of events have you hosted so far? A. For each festival season, we always host a variety of events for the students to enjoy. In 2018, we hosted an environmental campaign titled "We are Green Hanyang Culture" in order to create a culture of environmental awareness specifically for Hanyang University. For this campaign, we handed out free drinks to the students who brought their own empty bottles, and we also entertained an environmental mock test and handed out prizes to those who scored well. In 2019, we also hosted a "Subjective Travel Journal" event as the last event of the year. During this event, the students chose where they wanted to go and after filling out an Arrival Card, the students were able to experience what it would be like to travel the world through VR technology. ▲ A photo from the "We are Green Hanyang Culture" event Q. How can students participate in the events hosted by Hanyang Culture Supporters? A.The events are held once or twice a month, on Wednesdays from 1 to 3 pm in front of Democracy Square. This event only exists at the ERICA campus, and is a valuable time reserved and created by Hanyang Culture Love so that the students can participate in our events with ease. So, we hope that students will be able to participate and create their own precious university life memories by coming to Democracy Square on Wednesdays at 1 pm. Q. What kind of processes does the organization go through before hosting an event? A. The Organization of Hanyang Culture Love consists of the Management Team, the Planning Department, the Operations Department, and the External Cooperation Team. Before hosting an event, we have periodic meetings with the Student Administration so that we can prepare for our events that can be symbolized as something special for the Hanyang University students. We then have regular meetings one month before an event to decide on a concept and to thoroughly plan for it. We then create posters and prepare advertisements to publicize the event on social media, and we also conduct rehearsals all together a day before the event. We are always trying our best to make sure that we will conduct something that makes the students at ERICA campus happy. Q. When do you feel taking part in Hanyang Culture Supporters is rewarding? A. Among the students who have participated in our events, there have been many who have posted pictures of themselves or the prizes that they received on their personal social media accounts. When I saw how much the students have enjoyed our events, I was able to feel fulfilled and happy. Q. How can students apply to join Hanyang Culture Supporters? A. Hanyang Culture Supporters is a student body that is run by Sophomore students for an entire year. Our application period is open during the second half of the year for students who are becoming sophomores the following year, regardless of their admissions year number. If there are any students who would like to take part in Hanyang Culture Supporters from the year 2021, you can get to know us better through our various events in 2020 and join us as the 17th members later this year! Q. What should one be aware of when applying to Hanyang Culture Supporters? A. Hanyang Culture Supporters always welcomes students who have a sense of responsibility, are sincere, and honest. In order to host the events every month, we have regular meetings every week and each member of the organization must work on and finish their tasks with sincerity in order for our events to run smoothly. But even if you feel that you are not competent in those fields, as long as you are a student who loves Hanyang University and is willing to have an active school life, anyone can join Hanyang Culture Supporters.

[Student]The Practice of Love by ERICA Ambassador 'Love, Hanyang'

'Love, Hanyang,' the promotional ambassador group of Hanyang University ERICA has shown love to Hanyang. Let's take a look at the miracles they've created in the midst of a difficulty cuase by COVID-19 crisis. Q. We have invited 'Love, Hanyang,' who worked hard to collect donations to help overcome COVID-19. How did you start this donation event? A : Due to the sudden spread of COVID-19, we were disappointed that we couldn’t proceed with the activities that we had prepared. We thought about what we could do to help overcome COVID-19 and came up with the idea of starting a donation drive. We selected organizations fairly and carefully, hoping that the donations would be used in a timely manner, and asked various institutions to promote the drive to many students from Hanyang University ERICA. Also, for transparent financial management, the ambassadors did not lose their tension during the week-long fundraising period by organizing and disclosing the deposit details every day. We were proud that we could carry out the 'Love in Deed and Truth', which is part of the school’s philosophy, and it was an honor for Love, Hanyang to lead the event. In the beginning, it was a bit stressful to start fundraising as a school representative, but thanks to all the Hanyang family members that participated, it was better than expected. Q. What does the university ambassador Love, Hanyang do exactly? A : Love, Hanyang is the official ambassador of Hanyang University ERICA’s Admission Team, and works to promote our school both on- and off-campus. In this year, nine students are participating as 15th member of Love, Hanyang. Love, Hanyang is communicating with many middle and high school students through campus tours, HY-LIGHT (a high school student college tour program), frequent admission fairs at Coex, and local high school visitations to promote Hanyang University ERICA. Moreover, we carry out protocols during official school and student events to communication with our students. In addition, Love, Hanyang is a model for school promotional magazines, newsletters, and promotional videos as a representative body of the university. Q. Please tell us about the pride of Hanyang University ERICA that Love, Hanyang loves. A : Hanyang University ERICA, which is known as a university-industry cluster, operates IC-PBL, an independent and creative education model inside all divisions in our university. IC-PBL is a learner-centered class that builds self-directed problem-solving skills in conjunction with businesses. From this, students can solve problems that can occur on real business sites by themselves. Furthermore, we are actively supporting student startups. In order for all students interested in startups to experience them, we are operating startup lectures as basic mandatory classes and liberal arts classes which allow students to gain basic startup knowledge. As a result, Hanyang University ERICA has a strong startup establishment rate every year with high student participation, as it supports startup clubs with production costs, marketing, promotion costs, offices, and meeting rooms. Q. What skills are needed in Love, Hanyang? A : Love, Hanyang considers love for school an important factor as it is an ambassador group that represents Hanyang University ERICA students. It is helpful for promotional activities if one knows a lot about the university along with caring a lot about it. Also, there are a lot of situations where presentations or communications are needed in places with a lot of people or with middle and high school students, faculty, parents, and people from outside. So, we think a friendly attitude is also an important asset. Lastly, a strong sense of responsibility is required for the team to perform each of the tasks faithfully. Those of you who have passion and a sense of responsibility for Hanyang University should appeal to what you are confident in while filling out the application form and preparing for an interview. Q. Finally, is there anything you want to say to the freshmen class of '20? A : Dear freshmen class of '20, you’ve done a great job surviving the tough exam years and coming to Hanyang University ERICA. With COVID-19, we are concerned that you cannot fully enjoy life on-campus that you would have dreamed of. We, Love, Hanyang, also can’t wait to see you on the blooming campus after this chaotic time passes. You can all do anything you want and become anyone you want to be. Do not doubt your abilities, and we hope you build a variety of experiences and precious memories over the course of four years. Please show a lot of love and attention to Love, Hanyang, and we will be rooting for you to show everything you’ve dreamed of at Hanyang University ERICA! Global News Team global@hanyang.ac.kr
