In the last several semesters, the kick-off semester dinner has been long providing new students and professors of the Yonsei GSIS with opportunities to dine together and discuss their academic interests, school life, and personal interests.
This semester, the Graduate Student Association, the organizer of the event, decided to host the event in lunch time, seeing it would accommodate the schedule of a bigger number of students and professors. In total, seven professors and about 20 students gathered at this special event.
The dining event was also changed from a sit-down style to a stand-up style. Some student expressed that although the events of the last couple of semesters allowed her to have a personally-tailored consultation with the professors, she was grateful that the even this semester allowed her to have short, casual conversations with a greater number of professors and new students.
