Field Trip

Field Trip is a program for international students to experience the natural beauty of Korea. International students get to visit historical sites and tourist attractions. The trip gives an opportunity to students to better get to know each other and make more of a personal connection.
 

International Day

International Day provides both Korean students and international students with an opportunity to increase their understanding on the values of cultural diversity and to better get along with each other. Booths are set up where international students introduce their cultures and native country to other students with pictures, foods, traditional costumes and music. Students also get to enjoy a diversity of foods from various countries. Quiz competitions with questions relating to the countries our international students come from is another popular event of the day. Through these activities, UNIST aims at enhancing the effective communication between Korean students and international students, exchanging cultures among all UNISTARS, and ultimately going global.
