|TITLE||Freshmen Orientation ‘Shin Bang Rye’: Together with the Spirits of Old Scholars|
200 freshmen including international students participated in SKKU’s traditional welcoming orientation ‘Shin Bang Rye’, held at Social Sciences Campus from March 4th ~ 5th.
‘Shin Bang Rye’ is a traditional freshmen orientation stemming from the Chosun Dynasty, where new comers can learn about the education curriculum, campus life, and expected behavior.
The event that commenced during the ‘Shin Bang Rye’ ritual process are as follows: Al-Sung (commemorative rites in front of Dae-Sung-Jun), Sang-Eup-Rye (formal greetings between seniors and freshman students), Shin-Bang-Rye (welcoming party by sharing food), and Myun-Shin-Rye (initiation ceremony where senior students provides various tasks to freshmen).
“We wanted to create a unique and fun freshman orientation environment where all seniors and juniors can participate in the event without a solemn atmosphere”, said student Bo Yeon PARK (Dept. of Korean Languages and Literature), president of the student association ‘Chung Ryang’ which led this unique event.
Karel SETNICKA, a foreign exchange student from the Czech Republic also expressed her feelings as “I believe this traditional event provides good opportunities to think about relationship-oriented campus life and to have a mature sense of fellowship.”
