The Brightest Moments of Our Life,
Sogang 89’ Holds Homecoming Day Celebrating 30th Anniversary
- ’89 Homecoming Fund,’ Alumni Raises Fund for Sogang Juniors’ Scholarships
Under the theme The Brightest Moments in Our Life, Sogang University (president: Jong Gou Park) will hold the ‘Sogang 89’ Homecoming Day’ on November 2 at 16:00 in Gonzaga Hall, celebrating its 30th anniversary.
The ‘Sogang 89’ Homecoming Day’ is expected to provide a venue for alumni to gather together at their alma mater, reminisce the good old days of 30 years ago, and solidify their networks. In preparation for the upcoming event, representatives of those who joined the university in 1989 from each department held regular organizing committees.
The three-hour program is composed of a ‘Homecoming Slogan Contest’, ‘Video Message of Alumni Overseas’, ‘Celebrating Performance of Juniors’, and ‘Dinner Party.’ The event is also expected to provide a venue for sharing warmth and camaraderie, especially the ceremony of delivering the ‘89 Homecoming Fund’ that was raised by the 89’ alumni for their juniors and the university.
Park Yeong-gi (entered the university in 1989 with a major in Religions), chairman of the organizing committee for the Homecoming Day, said, “I hope many 89’ alumni will attend the event to make it successful. I would also like to extend my sincere gratitude to all 39 members of the committee who have been dedicated to preparations even though we had a very short time for planning. Also, I would like to especially thank all the staff of the Alumni Association and the university who supported us with all possible resources.”
Since the first Homecoming Day in 2011, Sogang University has held the event for those who celebrate the 30th anniversary of their entrance to the University. Beginning with the ‘Alumni 81’ Homecoming Day,’ this year marks the 9th anniversary. During the event period, the alumni have raised the ‘Homecoming Fund’ to be used for scholarships for their juniors and the school development.
