Job Offer in Hongdae

Saturday started extremely late, after a full day in Everland I was so exhausted that I didn’t leave my bed until 12 the next day. My friends and I decided to meet around 5 and go to Hongdae for shopping and dinner. We arrived at Hongdae around 6 and window shopped until it was time ...

Everland

So this past Friday I finally got to go to an amusement park called Everland. It was a tiring two hour trip, where we had to take three buses, and since some of the bus stops have very similar names and me and my friend ended up getting off at the wrong stop. Our last ...

The way she teaches new concepts is so energetic throughout ...

Seoul Fashion Week

When filling out my study abroad application, one of my essays was about Seoul street fashion. I am really interested in the difference between why most Koreans seem to prefer dressing more modestly compared to American fashion.

A Day in the Life

I’m writing this on a Monday, which was a very long day for me. I have three classes starting from 10 am to 5 pm. One difference about keeping time in Korea is that they use military time, so I was initially confused when people have suggested meeting at “15 o’clock.” I had an advanced ...

Application and Visa

My study abroad application process certainly had its challenges. I initially was interested in applying to the Paris + London Dual City summer program, which would be a perfect fit because I am a D&M major. But after my best friend mentioned the possibility of going to Korea, since I’ve been dying to go there ...
