[Special][Saranghandae] Special Summer Memories

▲ HISS students celebrated their successful summer vacation through the graduation ceremony The 2018 Hanyang International Summer School (HISS) reached its successful conclusion on the 27th of July with the graduation ceremony held in the Hanyang Olympic Gymnasium. A little over 2,000 students from 49 different countries participated in this year’s HISS, the largest ever, and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive from students and faculty alike. Earning credits and experiencing a range of activities in HISS’ edutainment-based program, this year’s participants expressed their overall satisfaction with many stating their desire to return. Another year of HISS After four weeks of attending intensive, 3-hours per day, 4-days a week classes and joining in a variety of offered activities, the graduation ceremony was held to celebrate not only the end of the program but also to celebrate the participants’ accomplishment of successfully completing the fast-paced, highly focused curriculum. Since the start of HISS in 1990, when HISS was originally a program for overseas, ethnic Koreans designed to introduce them to Korean language and culture, HISS has been working tirelessly to improve in both quality and quantity. As a result, HISS is now recognized as the largest summer school program in Korea. HISS still maintains its original goal of introducing Korea but is now far more inclusive and extensive, offering various activities such as the Han River Cruise Party, Boryeong Mud Festival, and a visit to SM TOWN for K-pop fans. In comparison to last year, 143 additional students from 10 different countries participated as HISS students this summer. Not only did HISS offer students opportunities to partake in fun-filled events, but additionally, 126 more classes were offered in the 9 fields of Art & Design, Communication & Media, Business & Economics, Humanities, International Studies, Korean Studies & Language, Science & Math, Social Studies, and Engineering. Wrapping up four weeks Before the ceremony, students in graduation caps and gowns were busy mingling with friends and taking photos of their last moments at HISS. A mixture of relief, sadness, excitement, and enthusiasm could be seen on their faces as many took turns snapping photos in front of the designated photo wall. Even though the program lasted four weeks, the atmosphere of the ceremony did not seem different from any other graduations. As the clock reached 2:00 pm, the students found their seats, filling up the floor of the Olympic Gymnasium. The ceremony began with a congratulatory farewell speech from the Hanyang University President, Lee Young-moo and Michael Collins, a guest professor from the Dublin Institute of Technology, Ireland. Both congratulated all students for their hard work during the past four weeks and wished all students well as they returned to their home countries. Testimonials by a participating student and two international interns followed. Victoria Morrison from Wilkes University gave the first speech as the student representative. She energetically shared her own experience at HISS, describing herself as a normal university student and avid fan of K-pop and who loves to play and learn new things. Next, Beatriz Guintu from the New Jersey Institute of Technology and Sylvester Sia from the Singapore Institute of Management (SIM), gave their speeches. They were the first international interns at HISS, working for the Office of International Affairs. As students who were able to experience something a bit more unique, they gave testimonials of what they had experienced as international students and interns at HISS. ▲ 1) Students are congratulating each other after completing their 4-week course ▲ 2) HISS students are performing a fan dance on stage ▲ 3) Graduates are taking commemorative photos against a photo wall ▲ 4) A student is receiving a certificate from his professor ▲ HISS students experienced Korean culture through various activities Goodbye for now As part of the ceremony, two students from Hanyang’s Department of Applied Music performed three dance routines from popular K-pop songs: ‘Latata’ by (G)I-DLE, ‘Playing with Fire’ by BlankPink and ‘Fake Love’ by BTS. Many of the students appeared to be familiar with these K-pop hits, and even though there may have been those who were unaware of them, the entire venue seemed filled with excitement. Many of the students could be seen singing along to the songs, brightening up the atmosphere. After the performance, some HISS students performed their own practiced routines including a traditional fan dance. Among the 126 offered classes, there was a traditional performance class in which students who signed up were able to learn the fan dance. These students practiced hard everyday for their final performance, and despite a lack of time, they performed exceptionally well to an appreciative audience. After the ceremony had ended, a lot of students remained at the stadium taking pictures to savor the moment. At HISS, new friendships were forged regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, or nationality. Four weeks had come and passed, and all the organized get-togethers had finished. The relationships and memories, however, will continue. A direct experience of Korea At the 2018 International Summer School, students were able to combine their studies with entertainment aspects of Korea. These included the following: ▲ 6) Students are enjoying their time at the Han River Boat Cruise ▲ 7) Students are taking a commemorative photo at the Boryeong Mud Festival SM Town & Nanta show On July 7th, students were able to choose between a trip to SM Town or watching the Nanta show. Those who were interested in K-pop were able to take a look at some of the work behind one of Asia’s biggest entertainment companies. That day, 319 students visited and had a chance to watch an SM-Town hologram musical and visit the gallery there. The other 393 students visited the Nanta show, a kitchen-themed percussion performance. The powerful beats and the creatively improvised instruments were a delight to the audiences’ eyes and ears. Han River Boat Cruise On July 10th and 11th, a total of 1,000 students attended the Han River Boat Cruise. Starting from Jamsil Pier, the students were able to enjoy the night view of part of the central areas of Seoul along the Han River. Various snacks, activities such as face-painting, henna tattooing, and games were provided, enabling students to get better acquainted with each other in a fun atmosphere. Boryeong Mud Festival On July 13th and 14th, a total of 757 students attended the biggest mud festival in Korea. Known for its healthy soil deposits, Boryeong boasts the annual festival in which participants can get down and dirty, competing in mud wrestling contests, enjoying mudslides, and just frolicking in the soothing mud. ▲ 8) Students went on a picnic to Caribbean Bay to splash around in the pool against the scorching heat. ▲ 9) The memories of new friends in a new country will last forever. Sylvester Sia from SIM “I started working as an intern from the first week of May. I really wanted to work as an international intern, and very thankfully I found a place at HYU. I was engaged in doing work similar to what the regular interns do. Beatriz and I were assigned to make a comprehensive guidebook of Korea from our view as international students so that other international students could better understand Korea and Korean culture. All my colleagues were extremely friendly, and I learned a lot from them, watching them all working very hard. I am currently planning to build a startup company, and now, since HISS has finished, I will go back to my original life and work hard to achieve my dream. I wasn’t able to speak Korean at first, but now I can have little chats in Korean. Thank you for everyone who has helped me!” Beatriz Guintu from the New Jersey Institute of Technology “I started working from the 28th of May. My sister already had experience joining HISS last year, and I was therefore extremely interested in working with the HISS staff, as someone who wanted to help. In America, you can’t imagine really developing any friendships with your superiors. However, while I worked here, I had frequent outings and enjoyed the time with colleagues and superiors as family and friends. I was therefore able to enjoy the work I did much more than I expected. I was also able to make a lot of friends from all around the world and have a wider view of the world. I am now going back to my home country to apply for graduate school. I will miss my life and experiences in Korea. I am grateful to all the staff for their hospitality, and the memories I shared.” By On Jung-yun (Student Reporter)

[Special][Saranghandae] A Big Step to Promote Global Communication

Just a few years ago, the translations for the official Hanyang website were in a state of catastrophe. There was no consistency in the terminology used, and there was an overall insufficiency of contents available in foreign languages. This frail structure soon became a bigger problem as the university gradually increased its engagement in international programs, such as exchange student programs, foreign internships, and language institutes. So what changed all of this? The answer is the Global Communication Committee (GCC). First initiated to address the inconsistencies in the various English titles within the university organization, GCC has extended its role to facilitate Hanyang University’s expansion of activities on a global platform. Providing a wide array of linguistic assistance in English and Chinese, it is now considered an integral tool on Hanyang’s path to becoming a truly global institution. ▲ (from the right) professor Ben Park, Jessica Warren, student assistant Park Hye-jung, Kwon Hee-jung, Nam Hyo-jin Introducing the Global Communication Committee Established in March of 2016, GCC consists of two departments that respectively handle content in English and Chinese. The English department consists of two professors and three graduate student assistants while the Chinese department is made up of one professor with two student assistants. There is also a supervisor and a chairperson who oversee the entire project. Situated on the fourth floor of the new Administration Building, GCC engages in four main activities: 1. Translating promotional content created by the Media Strategy Center, 2. Translating and managing English/Chinese content on the official website of Hanyang University, 3. Translating and consenting of key public documents generated from other departments, 4. Serving in a committee that establishes the official names and titles that exist within Hanyang University. Delving a little deeper into what GCC does, one of their major tasks is translating news articles written by student reporters. In an effort to share recent and noteworthy news with the foreign faculty and students, GCC took special attention in making these articles available in other languages. Regarding the process of translations, much of the writings are done by the student assistants, who then send their work to the professors who work for GCC for review and editing. In addition to news articles, GCC provides English versions of various notifications and updates from the university, which foreign students had trouble comprehending in the past. Other specific tasks include revising the English versions of congratulatory remarks given in major school events such as the bi-annual Paiknam Prize ceremony, and the university’s entrance/graduation ceremonies. The last role of GCC that cannot be stressed enough is the designation of official names for school departments and various titles. In the past, when these titles were translated freely by individuals, there was major confusion among foreign students and professors when discussing certain departments or facilities. Furthermore, the lack of an official, organizational title itself was a major breach in the university’s global competency. At the end of 2017, GCC had provided official titles for all departments, facilities, and faculty positions for Hanyang University. Furthermore, throughout the year, GCC had serviced 67 requests for translation from other departments, published 7 different printed forms of magazines, brochures, and catalogues, and uploaded 285 English news articles as well as 135 in Chinese. "Providing a wide array of linguistic assistance in English and Chinese, it is now considered an integral tool on Hanyang’s path to becoming a truly global institution." The engines behind the committee Ben Park and Jessica Warren are the two professors in charge of the final editing of the various English documents that pass through GCC. Whether it is a letter to be sent to a partner university, or a compilation of a new faculty manual, it is only after Ben and Jessica give consent that they become the official work of Hanyang University. “It’s a very important job. I had often heard from my colleagues that the English translation of the website was, quite frankly, embarrassing. I feel proud of how much progress we’ve made,” commented Ben. The two professors also work for the Center for Creative Convergence Education, where they teach classes such as Professional Academic English and Presentation and Writing Skills in English. It has not been long since Ben and Jessica began working for GCC. Ben began working for GCC in the fall semester of 2017 and Jessica since March of 2018. Prior to their position with GCC, Jessica had worked extensively in the field of English editing. For her, the biggest change in her work as a member of GCC is that the result of her revisions is now much more influential in scope and depth. As she was used to instructing students on a one-on-one basis, her editing tasks for GCC involve the production of something that so many people will see and be affected by was eye awakening. “My proudest moment while working for GCC was taking part in the translation of the new attendance program and its manual,” mentioned Jessica. She explained that her participation felt like a direct and practical effort in helping her English speaking colleagues.Ben has also had extensive experience in editing from his years as an ESL teacher in the United States. As such, he places quite an emphasis on the grammatical soundness of the papers he receives. “I try as much as I can to keep to the original structure intended by the writer,” answered Ben. For him, the hardest part of the job was editing translations that still had a Korean fixture. “Direct translations are usually very dense and awkward. It takes strict mental work to figure them out.” On the other hand, Jessica confessed that she finds these pieces entertaining, in a way that is similar to a puzzle. Either way, it was clear that both professors held great pride and interest in their role with GCC. They also agreed that they were surprised at how many programs and systems the university has in place for its students, and that the thought of making these opportunities more accessible to Executive Vice President Lee Sung-chull ▲ Executive Vice President , Lee Sung-chull Executive Vice President Lee Sung-chull is the founder and current chairperson of GCC. Also having served as the first Dean of the Division of International Studies, he has dedicated his time at Hanyang University by nurturing its global capacity. According to Dr. Lee, the main motivation for the establishment of GCC was the lack of a systematic management in its English affairs, despite the significant scale of our university. “Not only were all of the names of our buildings different, but professors and students could only check school notifications in Korean, and various English publications in the university were coordinated at the individual department level.” He also added that it imposed embarrassing complications when corresponding with foreign institutions. Executive Vice President, Dr. Lee expressed his satisfaction about the progress that GCC has made so far. “Every department, building, and infrastructure now has an official name, and we have sorted out the complicated number of titles for the professors.” Furthermore, he was very content with how the university website has turned out. He felt that what had consisted of rigid, direct translations is now very smooth and natural. Moreover, he felt that the visual design and concept of the improved website went beyond the domain of words, creating a welcoming platform for everyone. Meanwhile, he desires to make GCC more widely known. Though he was happy to hear that there was a steady growth in the requests for translation from other departments, he sought to position GCC in a more integral role at Hanyang University. “We are currently catering to English and Chinese, the two most commonly used languages on our campus. But as Hanyang University grows more global, there will be further expansion of languages as well as faculties to meet this new demand.” Emphasizing the ‘Communication’ in the name, Global Communication Committee, Executive Vice President, Dr. Lee has expressed hope that the committee will not just facilitate communication with foreign institutions, but amongst ourselves as members of Hanyang. With such dedication and support from all levels of GCC, Dr. Lee’ s aspirations do not seem very far-fetched. By Lee Chang-hyun (Student Reporter)
