This all started a few years back with the proposal of Professor Ha Nam-ju, a retired academic of pharmacy. He saw the difficulty international students experienced due to cultural differences and decided to open his doors for a get-together. As soon as the news spread, more than 10 professors eagerly expressed their interest.
“International students rarely have the opportunity to visit Korean households. I want to break bread and share Korean “jung” and culture. Although it is just a small gathering, I will continue meeting with students to find out what their needs are and start a scholarship program,” said Lee Gi-gap, Professor of English Literature.
