Personal stories

 My name is Daniyar, I came from Uzbekistan, and I am a PhD student at the College of Engineering, Seoul National University.
While in Korea, foreign students sometimes encounter various issues due to lack of knowledge of the language or specifics of local organizations. Often these are visa, family and other similar issues. For such cases College of Engineering has a wonderful place: the Welcome Center for International Students. This is such a warm place where you will always be greeted with a wide smile, listened to and try to solve all issues. In addition to directly helping students, this Center holds various events that help foreign students get to know each other and unite the international community of our college.
I personally and my classmates are frequent visitors to the Welcome Center, because it is equipped with everything necessary for self-studying and having a good time. I believe that the Welcome Center perfectly fulfills all the functions assigned to it and I am grateful to the management, employees and volunteers of the Welcome Center for helping me and my family to solve a number of difficult issues that I definitely could not solve on my own.
I wish our Welcome Center further successful work for the benefit of the community of international students of the College of Engineering, Seoul National University.


  My name is Miona. I come from Serbia, and I am a master student of Technology management, Economics and Policy here at the SNU College of Engineering.
Openening of the Welcome Center was one of the best things that happened for international students here because we got a spot where we can have a small break from studies, meet other students, and get help with any issues we might have. It's a cozy place that makes us feel welcome and comfortable. The ladies and students working there are amazing, always friendly and always helpful! They help us have a sense of community as they organize different events where we can both learn and have fun.

Without the Welcome Center the student lives of international students wouldn't be the same.
