It ranked 2nd placed within the Seoul region. This Patient Experience Assessment was conducted in 2019, for hospitals having more than 300 sickbeds being assessed. A total of 23,924 patients over age19 from 154 hospitals gave their assessments of the hospitals. The 6 categories of nursing service, doctor service, prescription and treatment process, hospital environment, the security of patient rights, and overall evaluation were assessed through 24 questions over the phone. Hanyang University Hospital received an average score of 87.05, which is higher than the total average of 82.7. The hospital especially received high scores on nursing service (90.72), doctor service (87.09), and prescription and treatment process (88.32), and other categories such as hospital environment (85.67), the security of patient rights (84.32), and overall evaluation (86.17) receiving scores higher than the average. Also, Hanyang University Hospital ranked in the top 5 among the domestic advanced general hospitals in 4 of the 6 categories, such as doctor service ranking 3rd and nursing service reaching 4th. Park Seong-ryul, the head of the center who had been preparing for the assessment at the Medical Cooperation Center, mentioned that "we applied the patients' comments from the 1st Patient Experience Assessment, and conducted our internal assessments regularly, which led to good scores on this 2nd assessment. Also, the patient-centered services such as "the alert message for the doctors’ round visits" and the “always memo”had an especial impact on the great increase in the hospitalized patient satisfaction." Hanyang University Hospital’s President Yoon Ho-joo mentioned that "after endlessly struggling to improve our medical services after the 1st evaluation, we were able to receive good results on this assessment," and added that "we will always try our best to become the Hanyang University Hospital that considers things from our patients’ perspective."

[Special]A Semester of the Emergency Measure Committee

When the Student Union of Hanyang University is vacant or resolved to be dismissed, the student presidents from each college gather to form the emergency measure committee. The president of the emergency measure committee has the same authority and responsibility as the president of the Student Union. Successively since 2018, the emergency measure committee has been organized to stand in for the absent union. This semester, they have worked especially hard for the students’ convenience in the chaotic situation of COVID-19. Kim Seok-chan (Division of Business Administration, 3rd year) served as the president of the emergency measure committee from November 2019 to July 2020. Kim said he ran for the president because previously, he had only participated as a supporting member of the Student Union, but he wanted to experience leading his own committee. Kim Seok-chan (Division of Business Administration, 3rd year) served as the president of the emergency measure committee until last semester. This semester, the emergency measure committee’s main task was to minimize the inconveniences of students caused by the COVID-19, by talking to the school and delivering students’ demands. “The emergency measure committee listened carefully to the students' voices and delivered them to the school to produce results that both the school and the students would be satisfied with,” said Kim. The emergency measure committee has prepared various forms of support to help students who are struggling due to the COVID-19. They secured an additional 100 million won for scholarship programs. “With the additional budget, it was possible to hold scholarship programs including face-to-face test subsidies,” said Kim. They also tried to promote other scholarships run by the school, including ones provided for the students whose family economic situation dramatically worsened due to the COVID-19. “We tried to promote scholarships in various ways including SNS, so that as many students as possible could benefit from them,” said Kim. In addition to practical aid, the committee also planned entertaining events such as an online festival for the spring semester and an e-sports competition. Unfortunately, they were not able to push ahead due to the rapidly increasing complaints in regards to the students' safety and off-line final exam. “Seeing how many students enthusiastically participated in the online this semester.” The members of the committee delivered the demands of the students and prepared various support systems for them. (Photo courtesy of Kim) Kim chose the joint action with other Hanyangians, which was held on June 23, as the most memorable activity during his term as president. The joint action was held to deliver the request of students for non-face-to-face final exams and tuition reimbursement through the staging of a demonstration. On that day, Kim was surprised at the large number of students who gathered to express their opinions. “I was moved by how the students gathered together and participated in the demonstration,” said Kim. It was also impressive that the students who participated voluntarily practiced strict social distancing and cleaned up after the demonstration was over. “I’d like to thank all the students who participated in the event and Ryu Duk-kyung (Department of Korean Language and Literature, 4th year) who organized the event,” said Kim. Kim chose the joint action held on June 23 as the most memorable activity during his term as president. During his term, Kim felt both pride and the weight of being a student representative. “When I was talking with the school headquarters staff, I thought a lot whether my current thoughts were different from those of other Hanyangians,” said Kim. “As a student representative, I tried to represent the opinions of most students and act carefully.” Kim thanked the members of the emergency measure committee for their efforts to create a satisfying school environment for students. “The voices of students from last semester were delivered to the school's headquarters, and they also recognized the problems of the current situation,” said Kim. “I hope students continue to pay attention to the situation in school, and do not become easily skeptical or unenthusiastic because their opinions are not reflected right away.” Hwang Hee-won whitewon99@hanyang.ac.kr

[Special]Gamers of Hanyang University

One of the most popular pastimes for college students in South Korea is gaming. Many Hanyangians also play games to release stress and socialize through online platforms. With the long summer vacation ahead, some special clubs at Hanyang University present diverse ways to enjoy computer games while promoting fellowship between various gamers at school. When the Lions Play Maple Story The club When the Lions Play Maple Story started from a Kakaotalk open chatroom back in April 2017. In order to help more Hanyang students enjoy Maple Story, a free online game with more than 3.9 million users, in a more systematic fashion, the open chatroom developed into an official club in February 2019. Due to the difficulty of holding an annual election for a president, the club centers around a management board which directs multiple game-related activities throughout the year. The club’s 2020 management board explained that the club’s main purpose is to “have Hanyangians share information and enjoy various in-game and offline events in order to lead a happier Maple-life. The activities held in the club are truly diverse. The management board said that before the spread of the coronavirus, the club held events such as a Maple mock-exam, Maple picnics during the fall, and Maple Story booths during school festivals. The Maple mock-exam in particular garnered a lot of attention not only from those within the school but also from gamers outside of the school. The test consisted of the expert players in the club handing out Korean SAT-like tests to assess members' knowledge about Maple Story. The Maple mock-exam gained nearly 30,000 views through SNS, earning positive feedback both from the club participants and the public who were all allowed to take the test. The SAT-themed Maple mock-exam consisted of questions to test students' knowledge about the game Maple Story. (Photo courtesy of When the Lions Play Maple Story) Moreover, the club has sold Maple Story-themed cookies and postcards during school festivals. They also entered an official festival held by the game company Nexon called NECOJE and held Maple Story tournaments with other Maple Story clubs from various universities. The members of the club visited the festival held at Nexon, the creators of Maple Story. (Photo courtesy of When the Lions Play Maple Story) The 2020 management board said any player who has one character above level 200 and has a clean playing record is welcome to join the club. The board invites all Hanyangians, stating that in their club “all players from all kinds of background come together through the game platform and become friends.” The 2020 management board said any player who has a character above level 200 and has a clean playing record is welcome to join the club. The board invites all Hanyangians, stating that in their club “all players from all kinds of backgrounds come together through the game platform and become friends. HYES HYES is another huge gaming club in Hanyang University which scouts 80 new members every semester. The club is a part of the ABC club, which is being funded by the gaming company Blizzard. The president of the club, Kim Ji-hyeon (Department of Media Communication, 4th year) explained that the club does not specify the games the participants can play and that the members are free to play any games they like within the club. HYES holds various events as well, such as a PC room overnight stay, a HYES special event called Full Playthrough where the club rents a party room and starts a new game which they play until the morning in order to clear all the stages, and an HYES tournament. “For the last tournament, 60 participants competed for a grand prize of 200,000 won,” said Kim. In addition, they hold offline sessions in Hanyang university classrooms in order to bond over playing games and meet regularly. HYES often hold PC room all nighters with all members after borrowing the entire facility. (Photo courtesy of HYES) This semester, due to the spread of coronavirus, the events are being put on hold. However, Kim said as soon as the coronavirus is contained, the members would go to PC rooms together and watch live game tournaments again. “As long as one knows how to enjoy playing games, neither their age, major, or grades matter in this club,” she said. “Everyone is invited to join at any time.” OOPArts At Hanyang, not only are there clubs that play games, but there is also a club dedicated to creating games. The OOPArts club stands for Out-of-Place Artifacts, and its participants aim to create games that are ahead of their time. The club’s activities mainly consist of presentations by the members, during which they introduce the games they play, discuss the issues in the game industry, research game engines, and learn about AI and user interface design. During the first semester, the club studies the game engine Unity, along with free gaming tools such as the Unreal Engine. With the skills they learn during the first semester, the participants then move on to creating a game of their own during the second semester, completed at the OOPArts Development Conference (ODC) at the end of the semester where each member presents their finished project. (From left) Baek Jong-won and Seo Byung-gi presenting their game during ODC. (Photo courtesy of OOPArts) The enthusiasm of the members pays off through different opportunities. One of the biggest achievements was the game Frostroy, created by Baek Jong-won (Department of Computer Science, 4th year) and Seo Byung-gi (Department of Computer Science, ‘20), which won an award at the Busan Indie Connect (BIC) festival and was introduced to the public at the G-Star Convention. A former vice-president of the club, Jung Sang-yoon (Department of Computer Science, 3rd year), explained that the club deals with “difficult gaming systems no one knows what to make of at first.” There were times when the team would suffer from mysterious gaming bugs for several days and had to restructure the entire game due to the slightest mistakes. “However, when the project is finally finished and presented at the ODC, it feels like we have created a ‘universe’ of our own,” he added. “And everyone is invited to share the same feelings.” Lee Yoon-seo cipcd0909@hanyang.ac.kr

[Special]How the Lion Became the Symbol of Hanyang

A lion is the officially designated school mascot of Hanyang University. The lion indicates the tradition and pride of the university and is used to represent Hanyang on school banners, student supplies, souvenirs, and other representative images of the university. Then when and how did the lion first establish itself as the symbol of Hanyang, and how has it changed over time? The lion is the symbol of Hanyang University and is frequently used as a representative image of the school. The statue of a roaring lion In February 1966, the lion statue in front of the Administration Building was unveiled. It was donated by the alumni of the Class of 1966 to memorialize their commencement. Although there are some mismatches between the sources, the stone statue is known to have been carved by Jeon Roe-jin, a master sculptor who won the National Art Exhibition several times. Made of granite, the statue depicts the spirit of a roaring lion. Hanyang Newspaper describes the lion statue as follows: "A lion generally implies bravery and is used as a symbol of heroes. The dignity of the Hanyang Lion corresponds with that representation." Hanyang Newspaper, March 5th, 1966 Since then, the lion has become the symbol of the university. These editorial cartoons show how it has been used throughout the history of Hanyang.

(Photo courtesy of Hanyang University Archives) Trivia on the teeth of the lion statue For a long time, there has been a myth surrounding the teeth of the lion statue. As many students of Hanyang have prepared for the bar exam and civil service exams, they often counted the lion’s teeth for good luck before their tests. As a result, a number of times the lion's teeth, as well as the tail, have been removed from the lion by the examinees. The school administration responded strongly to this issue in the early 2000s, and the lion's granite teeth were replaced with plastic ones. There was a myth about the lion statue's teeth, as they were thought to bring luck to examinees on the bar exam and civil service exams. (Photo courtesy of Hanyang University Archives) The lion becomes the brand of Hanyang Today, the lion is more than just a representation of the school; it is the brand of Hanyang. The university launched HYlion 1.0 as its official mascot in 2011. Its name came from the combination of the words "Hanyang" and "lion." The mascot was updated last year, reinforcing its function as a character brand. “The focus is on planning, developing, and finding various applications of HYLion to strengthen a shared sense of school spirit,” said Lee Soo-kyeong from the Design Administration Center. “It also aims to make Hanyang more appealing to future students.” (Left) HYlion 1.0 and (right) HYlion 2.0 (Photo courtesy of Hanyang University) Oh Kyu-jin alex684@hanyang.ac.kr Photos by Oh Kyu-jin

[Academics]Professor Choi Chang-hwan's Team Develops a New Material for Steel-genetics that Is Diversifiable into 3D Flash Memory Devices

Professor Choi Chang-hwan, Division of Materials Science & Engineering, and Dr. Koo Bon-cheol, a research team student, have developed a new material that can solve the high-density and low-power problems of 3D flash memory devices. This research has been highly praised for opening up the possibility of reducing flash device thickness, which is a task that must be overcome in order to continuously upgrade current 3D flash memory devices. Current 3D flash memory devices use thin-film materials consisting of oxide, nitride, and oxide (ONO) to store memory. This film has a thickness of 20 nm. 3D flash memory devices need continuous enhancement to improve their performance. However, it is difficult to reduce the thickness of existing ONO thin-film, and it is not easy to improve the speed and power of the flash element. In addition, alternative thin-film materials need to be developed due to difficulties in multi-level cells (MLCs) that can store various information in one cell. Professor Choi's team cooled an aluminum-coated substance in Hafnium oxide (HfO2), forming a new thin-film with residual polarization and an avionics field, maximizing the properties of the steel electrode. Flash memory devices with this feature are highly desirable as they can easily be repaired using improved polarizing properties. Moreover, the thin-film thickness can be implemented even if it is under 10 nm. Also, the properties of the steel-genetic have been improved as they induce a stable orthorhombic phase through high-stress deformation. Not only that, but Hafnium oxide is also a material that has been proven to be reliable in the field of logic semiconductors. Manufacturers being able to manufacture new Nand flash memory using this material without further investment is a significant benefit. This study was conducted by a team led by Professor Song Yun-heup, Department of Electronic Engineering, with the support of Samsung Electronics' Future Technology Development Center. It was introduced at a symposium on very-large-scale integration (VLSI) by the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), a world-renowned association on semiconductors, which ran for six days starting on the 14th. In particular, this study was chosen as one of the "highlighted" theses by the technical committee and was introduced to the media, allowing it to gain the spotlight. The Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits, which celebrated its 40th anniversary this year, is the most prestigious conference in the field of semiconductors, along with the International Electron Device Meeting (IEDM). Annually, the conference presents the latest research on semiconductors and selects the papers that have contributed the most to semiconductor companies and academia. This year's conference was carried out online due to COVID-19 and received the most theses in 10 years. Out of the 248 papers that were received, 86 papers were selected as the most influential thesis of which only 29 papers were sponsored by universities"?). Professor Choi said, "Technology to implement strong-genetics is emerging as a trend in academia," and he added "this is the first good example that has raised the generation of Hafnium oxide material, which will be used for NAND-flash high-density integration, to nearly universal level." In addition, he mentioned that "Out of the 8 ferrogenic thin-film thesis papers that were chosen, 5 were from companies and 3 were from universities". He said, "The research team from Hanyang University was the only Korean university to have a thesis selected," and added "it is rare to present a research conducted by university without any cooperation or sponsor of enterprises. This study is expected to contribute to the development of the thin-film that can be implemented in 3D flash memory devices."
