We have prepared this Thanksgiving festival for the foreign exchange students who cannot visit their home for the holiday.” Goo-Young (Dep. Of Korean Language and Literature/China) responded as a representative of the exchange students, “I’d like to give a special thanks to the students and faculty members for coming to this festival. We foreign exchange students are spending holidays in a foreign country, but thanks to this festival, we had a most splendid holiday.”

  At the event, Korean Students performed Taekwondo, Samulnori (traditional percussion quartet), and dance shows. The foreign exchange students made their traditional food and served them with explanations of each food. There were also booths where students could experience other countries’ various traditional cultures such as a Latin Dance, shuttlecock game, martial arts, and calligraphy.
