▲ 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.

[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

[Academics]Hanyang University Professor Kim Jong-Ho, Developed a Nanocatalyst that Enhances the Performance of Metal-Air Batteries

Professor Kim Jong-ho Hanyang University announced on March 26th that Professor Kim Jong-ho's team in the Department of Materials Science and Chemical Engineering of Hanyang University ERICA campus has developed a new nanocatalyst that enhances the performance of metal-air batteries. A "metal-air battery" is a next-generation battery that is charged and discharged through oxygen in the air, which has bigger energy storage, a lower price, and no possibility of explosion compared to the Lithium-ion batteries, and therefore is attracting the attention of the electric vehicle industry. The performance of a metal-air battery that can be charged and discharged is determined by the oxygen's oxidation and deoxidation rate of reaction happening within the cathode. Up until now, expensive catalysts such as platinum (Pt) and ruthenium (Ru) have been used to catalyze the oxidation and deoxidation of the oxygen. However, these catalysts had the problem of reducing the lifespan of the battery, due to its high price and low stability. For this reason, the need for a carbon catalyst with a low price and great performance has been understood. Professor Kim's team coined the "Solvothermal Radical Synthesis," solving the problem through delicately adjusting the nanostructure and vitality of the carbon catalyst. Professor Kim's team attached cobalt atoms or cobalt nanoparticles to porous carbon nanostructures, in order to adjust the interaction between organic-inorganic molecules and precisely control the structure and vitality of the catalyst, thereby enhancing the performance and stability of the catalysts. The metal-air battery produced through the use of this carbon-nanocatalyst has a 30% lower price than the original catalyst, which maintains its stabilized performance above 100%, even after its long charging and discharging. Professor Kim mentioned that "when the carbon-nanocatalyst with a cheap price and high performance is applied to metal-air batteries, it will remarkably reduce the unit cost of electric vehicles," and added, "This research provides a new method to develop a next-generation nanocatalyst material with precisely adjusted structure and performance through molecular controlling." This research was supported by the National Research Foundation of Korea and was conducted with Professor Lee Sang-uck's team from Hanyang University ERICA Departement of Chemical and Molecular Engineering, and the result of the research (Paper Title: Molecular engineering of nanostructures and activities on bifunctional oxygen electrocatalysts for Zinc-air batteries) that was published online on one of the top internationally renowned academic journals within the field of chemical and environmental engineering, Applied Catalysis B: Environmental, on March 9th. ▲ Synthesis of carbon-based nanocatalyst through effective molecule control <Reference> Related paper: 2020_3_Molecular engineering of nanostructures and activities on bifunctional oxygen electrocatalysts for Zinc-air batteries 『Applied Catalysis B: Environmental』 Global News Team Translated by: Lee Wonyoung global@hanyang.ac.kr

[Special]Publication 40-year History of ERICA Campus

The ERICA Campus celebrated their 40th anniversary last year. To commemorate the milestone, the External Affairs and Development Team published The 40-Year History of ERICA Campus, a book which details information about ERICA's growth. The book is not merely a documentation of the past, but the essence of ERICA Campus, capturing its 40-year history in four sections: Prologue, "40 Years of ERICA" (further divided into 1979 to 1989, 1990 to 1999, 2000 to 2009, and 2010 to 2019), "40 Years of ERICA's Education" and "40 years of ERICA as Viewed by the Media." To celebrate the 40th anniversary of ERICA Campus, Hanyang University published 40-Year History of ERICA Campus. (Photo courtesy of the External Affairs and Development Team) The prologue “40-Year of ERICA in photos” shows chronological changes to the campus since 1980 through photographs. It shows images of an ERICA we have never known. The captions add to our imagination, reading, for instance, “When it rained, the campus used to turn into a mud puddle because the roads were not paved. Then, students went to their lectures in a pair of boots.” Image of ERICA in 1980 in the prologue "40-Year of ERICA in Photos” (Photo courtesy of the External Affairs and Development Team) Student activities were also recorded as an important part of ERICA’s history. There is a list of all student councils since the opening of the school with a note on whether they were involved in student activism, as well as records on student movements that occurred at the time. The book also includes images of present-day ERICA, introducing the current student council, school clubs, school events, and press institutions. In the second section "student activity," information about various school activities is detailed. (Photo courtesy of the External Affairs and Development Team) Turning one page after another, we see the enormous growth of ERICA Campus over the past 10 years. Moon Mi-sun, chief of the External Affairs and Development Team said, “For us, the last 10 years have repeated brilliant growth and innovation, greater than that of any other university in Korea…I hope Hanyangians share a sense of pride by reading this book.” Moon also expressed gratitude toward the senior staffs, elder professors, and team staff who supported the making of the book. “It was difficult to collect old data and thus required a great deal of effort from the External Affairs and Development Team to successfully finish the book.” Hanyangians can get 40-Year History of ERICA Campus for free by inquiring at the External Affairs and Development Team (limited number available) or read online at 40-Year History of ERICA Campus.
