There is a nickname of Hongik University and most students may know that nickname. Yes, it is ‘Hongwarts’. Thisnickname of Hongik University is derived from ‘Hogwarts’ in the Harry Potter books. Almost all the buildings are connected from the Hong-Mun Hall to the Humanities & Social Science Hall, and the passageways appear to be hidden. This complex campus structure resembles Hogwarts, so this nickname was created. Such a campus structure and a lack of promotion make it hard for us to know and use helpful spaces on campus. This article will introduce some helpful spaces. When you finish reading this article, let’s go there!
There are a lot of team presentations and group studies in college life. Many fellow students visit the Student Union Hall’s first floor or a cafe nearby campus. However, the first floor of the Student Union Hall is exposed to noise because of its openness and we have to buy some drink at a café, so sometimes the expenses are burdensome. So, let’s visit a group study room.
