The Korea Post notice

Handong Global University stands out with many distinguishing features

Unrivaled long string of scholarships, financial assistance

Most of the high school graduates and their parents in Korea tend to insist on winning matriculation at all cost at Seoul National University or other prestigious universities in Seoul such as Yonsei, Korea, Ewha (for women), Sogang and a number of others.However, closely examining other universities in Korea, such as those in different localities out of the capital city, one is appalled at the outstanding features of other universities in various localities, which stand out in various aspects. The Korea Post has embarked on discovering such universities across the country and introducing them to the students and parents for a fresh look into the reality in the educational circles in Korea.

The first university is Handong Global University (HGU) which is located near Pohang where POSCO is situated. Unlike other universities, students at HGU come from Seoul instead of their going to Seoul from the local regions. A quick glance at a breakdown of students at HGU from different localities shows 31.2% from Seoul and the surrounding Capital Zone, 18.7% from Daegu Metropolitan City (MC) and Gyeongsangbuk-do, 12.4% from Busan MC, Gyeongsangnam-do (including Ulsan) 9.2% from Gwangju MC and Jeolla provinces, 11.9% from Daejeon MC and Chungcheong provinces, 2.4% from Gangwon and Jeju regions. This situation is rarely noticed with other universities in Korea, and may be construed as an indication that HGU has features that outshine other universities, including those in Seoul.

One of the outstanding reasons is the generous scholarships offered by the University and other supporting organizations and the outstanding features attractive to the students and parents. For further details, please visit: /news/view.html?section=162&category=182&no=946

Ambassadors and their spouses are invited to in the middle of June this year tour the campus facilities of the Unity and also to visit the POSCO Museum and the picturesque Yeongil-Dae Pavilion that protrudes into the sea from the shore of Pohang. Invitation will be emailed and faxed to the Excellencies> In case of transmission failure, please contact Tel 2298-1740/2, 010-3388-1682 (Korean), 010-3481-1101 (English) or 010-5201-1740 (Chairman Lee Kyung-sik).

Main building of the Handong Global University campus in Pohang, near POSCO.

Todays humor:

Humor from a generous former Asian ambassador

Pun for fun

Ques: What do Snowmen call their offspring?

School joke

Teacher: Why have you stuffed cotton wool in your ears, do you have an infection?

Pupil: Well, you keep saying that things go in one ear and come out through the other so I am trying to keep it all in!

She wasnt a blonde

Kelly was standing in front of Cohan's Tavern when he saw a driverless car rolling slowly down the street.

He ran to the car, jumped in, and pulled on the emergency brake with a jerk.

Kelly got out and very proudly said to the man approaching him, "I stopped it!"

"I know, you idiot!" said the man. "I was pushing it!"

Cultural Differences

During an educational theory lecture at an American university the professor stressed the importance of being sensitive to cultural differences.

An attractive young woman insisted that there was no difference between cultures apart from dress, language and food.

A student from the Middle East stood up. You have stated that your culture has not significantly affected how you think, am I correct?

Thats right, she answered.

And that there are no important differences between my culture and yours?


His handsome face lit up with a dazzling smile.

I am happy, then, because I find you very attractive. I have only two wives and would like you to be the third.
