The campaign of hanging ribbon
Last year, on April 16th, there was a tragic and sorrowful Sewol ferry accident. To commemorate this tragedy, the student union had a ribbon campaign from April 15th to 17th in Cheongram Square. Despite the harsh rain as well as the mid-term exams, many students, faculties and even residents of this area participated in the ceremony and hung the ribbon on the “Minju Tree” which stands alone in the middle of Cheongram Square. Those ribbons were made by the members of student union. Around 450 people participated in the three-day ribbon campaign. On behalf of everyone in KNUE, the ribbons were sent to the victim’s families.
From 12th to 14th in May, Cheongram festival named “Cheong Chun”, which means spring of the people of Cheongram, was held. Unlike previous festivals, this year’s festival seems to be distinctive because “Cheong Chun” successfully stimulated the five senses of the KNUE students. Students could actually show and feel their enthusiasm during the festival. Also, they could not help but buy diverse food and drink from each department’s profit-business as the mouth-watering smell of food lingered throughout the festival. The Student union also had non-profit events such as “sharing herb” and a tattoo event. In the evening of the first day, each department’s freshmen performed in the auditorium and showed their talent by dancing and acting. On the second and the third day, KNUE students could fully enjoy various performances of each clubs and programs organized by the student union. The best part was the performance of invited singers such as ‘Mad Clown’, ‘Acoustic Kolabo’ and so on. It has been publicly agreed that the quality of invited singers this year was the best ever. After each day’s festival, the students organized by the student union patrolled to ensure the safety of the students as well as to clean up the Cheongram Square.
