"One of the best things I love about my program at Soonchunhyang University is the exchange program. I get to meet one on one with Korean students. This semester I have 9 exchanges, ranging from freshman to senior. We usually have lunch, play games in the global lounge, walk around campus, go to a cafe, and so much more." -Pakhoua Vang, Spring & Fall 2015
"This past weekend I visited Seoul and I ate live octopus for the first time. When eating live octopus you have to have it cut into tiny pieces so that it doesn't kill you as you eat it. Eating the octopus was kind of hard to get used to. I am still undecided about how I fee about the whole experience, but I feel like I would probably try it again. " -Brian Palaggi, Year 2015-2016
