During the tour of Handong Global Univesity:
Professor Kim Soon-kwon (AKA ‘Maize Doctor’) will welcome and greet Your Excellency with a gift box of ‘Kim Soon-kwon Maize’ which is famous around the world as well as in Korea for the sweet taste of each grain even without cooking.

Also, as was previously introduced, there will be a special welcome by Mayor Lee Kang-duk of the Pohang City

Only nine days left to the Tour:
There are only 9 days left to the Tour of the Handong Global University, POSCO Museum and Yeongil-dae Pavilion on Thursday 11 June 2015. Located in Pohang near POSCO, Handong University has incomparably outstanding features clearly telling it apart from other universities in Seoul and other regions, including an unrivalled long list of attractive scholarships and financial support for the Korean and international students. Deluxe KTX Train is used between Seoul and Pohang.
The Korea Post has already forward the Invitation of Soon-Heung Chang of Handong University to Your Excellency and Madam.
In case of our transmission failture, please advise us at 2298-1740/2, 1745/6 or 010-3388-1682 (Korean) or 010-3481-1101 (English), or 5201-1740 (Chairman Lee of The Korea Post).
Handong Global University stands out with many distinguishing features
An 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.
For further details, please visit: /news/view.html?section=162&category=184&no=947

“Because,” the father explained, “with a clarinet, she can’t sing along.”
