Summer 2013, Issue I

K&S workshop 2

안녕하세요!  Annyonghaseyo! Greetings from Seoul!

Our summer program is off to a good start. After a fun-filled, action-packed CIEE orientation, students have settled down to study as classes started on Tuesday, July 2. Our CIEE orientation included a campus tour, a Korean Spirit and Culture workshop to introduce students to Korean etiquette and various other aspects of Korean culture and society, a “Navigating Seoul” photo scavenger hunt to help the students learn how to get around the city, and a street food tour to help them learn about Korean cuisine. We also visited the National Museum and attended a non-verbal musical performance before heading off on a 3-day excursion to the Hadong area in the southwest part of the country. Through the excursion, students learned about Korean traditional lifestyles, the
various religions that have shaped the Korean psyche, traditional architecture, tea, and more.

On Monday, the last day before classes started, we had a CIEE excursion to LG Electronics Display Center. Friday is “Activity Day”, a no-class day, so yesterday, to prepare the students for our upcoming excursion to the DMZ next Friday, we had a briefing about the DMZ, the Korean War, the military alliance and state of inter-Korean relations and ended the day with an optional cultural

The following photos offer a glimpse into what students have been doing on our program since arriving two weeks ago.
