I’ve been in Seoul, South Korea for roughly about 2 weeks now and have already finished per week of education at Hanyang College. This system I’m doing is Hanyang Worldwide Summer time Faculty which is an intensive program. The overall overview schedule of this schedule is that it’s Monday to Thursday, from 9am to roughly 7pm and typically 6pm relying on the programs you’re taking.

I reside at a Hanyang-affiliated housing referred to as “Hanyang Habitat.” I get a small room with a bathe and loo space. There’s a shared widespread space and a kitchen on the 3F. I feel if you’re 5’7” and beneath, it’ll be snug. If not, I might look elsewhere to remain because the mattress is kind of small. Regardless of the small room, I feel this place is nice. I used to be in a position to meet with different individuals doing the identical summer season program and so it was good to know individuals. 

My college day begins round 8:00am. Ideally, that’s after I need to get up. I stand up, prepare and get out the door by 8:30am. The very first thing I do is stroll to GS25, a comfort retailer that’s a 2-minute stroll away from my keep. I at all times get a strawberry milk drink and if I’m feeling a bit of famished, I additionally purchase myself a kimbap. The wonderful thing about comfort shops in Korea is that they’ve a whole lot of breakfast choices for very low-cost. Usually, my morning GS25 run will price lower than 5,000krw, which is $4 USD, for a strong breakfast and drink.

Then I make my method in direction of Hanyang campus to Engineering Constructing 1, the place my courses are positioned in. Relying on what programs you registered for, you’ll both finish at 6pm or 7pm. From 9am-12pm, I’m taking the Promoting and Promotions class. Then everyone has lunch between 12pm-1pm and I often go to the Hanyang Plaza however there are a lot of cafeterias and meals locations round campus to take a look at! From 1pm-4pm is the following class session and I’m taking Techno English Presentation Expertise. Lastly, from 4pm-6pm, I made a decision to take the Korean Pop Dance elective.

After college, I am going dwelling to relaxation a bit and to chill off because it’s scorching and humid. From this level on, I do no matter I need to do. Generally I am going out to dinner myself at a neighborhood Korean restaurant or possibly I am going out to eat with buddies at an even bigger restaurant. I even typically go discover a brand new neighborhood and seize dinner there afterward. I can even work on college assignments. As well as, each week, Hanyang has one thing referred to as a “SumTour” that are actions that Hanyang organizes {that a} group of people who signed up can do collectively! Some examples of actions are taking a category at 1 Million Dance Studio, going to a baseball sport, visiting palaces, and many others. Through the first week, I signed as much as go to 1 Million Dance Studio and that was such a enjoyable expertise! These actions are in the course of the week and often after courses.

Lastly, on the finish of the evening, I get dwelling by 12am as trains often cease working by 12:30am. That’s an outline of what a typical day is like finding out at Hanyang College. A saying I prefer to say is “It’s what you make it.” I need to have enjoyable and expertise a whole lot of Korea so I put myself on the market, make buddies, and discover.
