While the Hanyang University (Seoul) Student Union is currently vacant, the 47th Emergency Committee of the Student Union officially announced on May 3rd that it will not hold the spring festival "Rachios." The committee said that it tried to recruit executive members, but that they found it difficult to proceed with the plan due to the low number of applicants even with two recruitment sessions. The following is the full statement:

The full statement of the Emergency Committee of the Student Union about the spring festival "Rachios."

Hello, this is the Emergency Committee of the 47th Student Union for 2019.

First of all, we are sorry to inform you that the 2019 Spring Festival "Rachios" will not be held, and we ask for your generous understanding. Our central administration department tried to hold the festival to meet the students' great interest and love for the event. 

However, it was not easy to break down the walls of reality. The current chairman of the committee and the central executive chairman have argued the necessity and justification of holding the event since the beginning of the school year. As a result, the Special Committee for the Preparation of the Festival was launched inside the Central Operating Committee; we were eager to successfully hold the festival at all costs.
 As a person who experienced the festival last year, I know how much it means to the students of Hanyang University. Since the beginning of this year, we have been busy preparing for the festival and have conducted two public recruitment sessions to fulfill our plan. Unfortunately, the number of applicants was absolutely insufficient.

Currently, the executive department itself has not sufficiently allocated a director or head deputy position, nor do we have enough supporting members. Even the director and deputy were narrowly recruited from two public recruitment sessions. Moreover, I regret to tell you that we are also facing an immediate lack of executive leadership compared to last year. 

In our current situation, we have concluded that we cannot proceed with the festival despite our passion and desire, because we do not have the ability to take responsibility for the safety of the students in case of any accidents.

Even though the festival planning association has been recruited, we are concerned about the these issues. We cannot ask the association to take responsiblity for festival-related work; nor does the size of the association guarantee the lucrative fulfillment of the task. Therefore, we decided to call off the festival due to the lack of manpower.

The festival would be virtually impossible to proceed with in the absence of the executive branch, as well as the production of content, discussions with management agencies, financial sponsorship, and other school departments.

I would like to officially inform you that there will be no spring festival "Rachios" organized by the 47th Emergency Committee of the Students Union.

Our committee is deeply sorry for not being able to proceed with the festival that has been loved and anticipated by the students. We are deeply sorry for letting you down. 


The Emergency Committee of the 47th Student Union
