Sogang Secondhand Market, one of the beautiful stores in the university, marked its 15th year since its launch in 2004. Sogang Secondhand Market continues its activity fueled by affection for others, by selling the donated goods from Sogang people, including professors, volunteers, alumni, parents, and companies run by alumni, at low prices and donating the profit for the Sogang development fund.

On the other hand, volunteer Lee Mun-im, a parent of an alumnus, said that “I hope more and more Sogang people will participate in this meaningful event in which people can find useful goods that donor does not use any more.” she further added that “in particular, Sogang Secondhand Market will become a venue in which many young students visit, as the market is led by the middle aged people currently.”
