Interview with Roh Moo-hyun, Former Assemblyman
As you see in the picture, we interviewed Roh Moo-hyun, a former president of Korea, before his going to a lecture to educate people including university students. At that time, he was the head of the young men’s special committee of the Democratic Party (DP). He was also working for the leader of the DP, Kim Dae-jung, to win the coming presidential election. In the interview, he urged students to be interested in politics in that politics are our problems. After interviewing, he gave a lecture. The following contents were selected from his address.
First, be a practicing intellectual. These days, many people just criticize social absurdities through only words, not action.
Second, if you should rise to the high position, respect a universal truth.
Third, never put off till later what you can do now.

Hongik Needs Balanced and Effective Educational Development Plan
This article deals with the problems of the educational administration in Hongik University. For example, when we signed up for classes, we could not have courses that we wanted since there were fewer courses in our school than in others. I really sympathize with the subject of this article because the problems of the current educational administration we discuss nowadays are not different with from those of the past. In addition, it was unusual and enviable that they expressed their dissatisfaction to school actively, even though they are a university press, which is under the school’s management.

A Long Journey
I had never seen a student who used a wheelchair in the Hongik University campus. So, I didn’t think or care about those students. However, in this article, there was a student who had a car accident and had to depend on a wheelchair during some months. The student went to the campus in a wheelchair and went around the campus in the chair. He or she wrote a detailed review about using a wheelchair in the campus. Thanks to this article, I could realize that there are some students who have to use a wheelchair. Also, I know that it is uncomfortable to use a wheelchair in the campus.

Do You Reuse Waste Paper?
The article shows the eco-friendly campaign that the reporters of Hongik Tidings made. They gathered used paper from trash cans and found out that one-side-used papers make up a large portion of the total amount of paper waste. So they made 135 used-paper notebooks and distributed them to students for free. I was moved by their passion to do such hard work. Also, I thought holding a campaign could be an effective way to advertise Hongik Tidings to students. I hope we will think of a special campaign that many people can join.

Have you ever thought of getting cancer? Thinking about it hardly strikes us because we believe cancer is none of our business. Here’s the story of a person who was just like us. The writer used to be a ‘thyroid cancer’ patient. The whole story of recovering gave me the chance to think back on my life. The writer felt helpless and depressed, being unable to do anything under the threat of the disease. The time that normal university students spent with their assignments and studying was the thing that he desired most. Without the similar experience, do I value much of my time? The article gave me the chance to look back at myself.
