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."
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.”
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.
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.
