Hanyang University ERICA's Student Union Harang decided to cancel the payment of the student union fees for the 2020 fall semester. We talked to Yoon Ji-seok ERICA student union president about the decision.
Q. The student union fee has been changed. How will the changes be implemented?
A. The student union fee has been a selective choice that students can check and make payments for when submitting their tuition fee. After hearing considerations at the central committee, all entities within the school that use the student union fee have agreed not to receive the fee for the fall semester of 2020 and sent the requested document to the university (Office of Planning - Finance Team of the Seoul Campus). Through some debate, Hanyang University ERICA decided to cancel the student union fee payment for the 2020 fall semester.
Q. What was the inspiration for this idea?
A. The number of students visiting the school has been greatly reduced due to COVID-19, and the events that students can participate in have been canceled or postponed. Accordingly, after many discussions, we decided that it would be possible to operate the student union and the center meeting solely with the extra budget carried over from last semester. To reduce the burden of the students, we decided to cancel the student union fee payment for the 2020 fall semester.
Q. We are curious how the student union and the central committee will operate without the student union fee.
A. The student union and the central committee will operate as before without any changes. However, events will be planned according to the COVID-19 situation for the fall semester, in hopes that we can be more helpful to the students.
Q. What are the foreseeable plans of the student union Harang, and what do you want to say before the end of the interview?
A. All plans except the outdoor group events are being prepared without any problems. We are also trying our best to expand the scholarship and welfare benefits that students can receive during the era of COVID-19. As it is difficult to operate offline events, we will remain close to the students through Harang Tube, and the official Youtube Channel of Hanyang University ERICA.
Please let us know any time when difficulties occur within the school through official student union Harang's SNS accounts (Instagram, Facebook), and we will try our best to take fast and clear action.
