I really enjoyed my time here

The lectures were really good. A lot were packed into the last week - wish it could have been longer. My Korean language teacher is the best teacher I’ve every had.

The field trips were awesome. I wish they would have been longer, in different cities.

I participated in Sogang’s Buddy Program but I only met my buddy once when I was picked-up. After pick-up service I didn’t hear from him.

I also participated in the Special Activity and I liked it. I wished there were more activities.

I really enjoyed my time here but I wish there would have been more activities like the BIBAP and maybe a week or two longer so that we can enjoy our last weeks in Korea without worrying about stressful classes.

Amazing

The lectures for Seminar 2 did not have enough focus on readings in one of the classes and group discussions. Our teacher for the Korean classes was energetic and good at teaching.

The trip in Jeonju was amazing. The 2nd field trip was not as good, sad we didn’t see Gyeongbokgung and was more commercial.

My buddy on the Buddy program was very busy so we never had time to meet. Didn’t reach out to us first, didn’t help our buddy group get to know each other. But I emailed her and she helped me a little bit with some questions.

I had a very good stay at the dormitory. The facilities and the staff was very nice and the food was really good. Though there was no kitchen or freezer and only a few microwaves and few lounge spaces.

Overall, the Sogang program was great

The lectures were not always the most engaging/structured, but they were enriching. The Korean classes were taught very well at a fast pace.

I felt that many stops on the field trip were strange choices or not very educational or enriching.

On the Buddy program, I’m sure my buddy would have been helpful if we had met, and I also could have reached out, but I wish Sogang facilitated the meeting.

My stay at the dormitory, Gonzaga Hall, was good. The facilities were very nice. The beds at the dormitory were very hard like a brick but otherwise, clean and modern. The rule against guests is a bit much.

Overall, the Sogang program was great and I fell like I learned a lot.

I really enjoyed my time here at Sogang

I thoroughly enjoyed the class and was very glad to have learned economics/politics through the Korean viewpoint. Our teachers were very energetic and made learning Korean enjoyable.

I thought the field trips were very fun and made the whole Sogang experience better.

Gonzaga Hall, the dormitory I stayed in, was a great place to stay.

I really enjoyed my time here at Sogang. It was a great way for me to travel to a foreign country and have a way to ease myself into the culture. I had a great time learning the culture and language while meeting new people from all over the world.
