The Global Studies and Languages Korean language program celebrated the 572nd Hangeul Day on October 11.

Hangeul is the Korean writing system created by King Sejong the Great and promulgated to the public on October 9, 1453.

Fifty-one students in Korean language classes (both current and former students) joined the festivities including a Golden Bell quiz game and a Bingo game. This event, not only allowed students to meet fellow students who are taking/took Korean language classes, it also encouraged students’ interests in Korean language, culture, and history. In addition, this event helped identify students’ specific interests in Korea so that we can accommodate their needs in the curriculum.

This event was funded by MISTI-Korea and will be held annual with its support.
