SUNY Korea held an information session at Gyeonggi North Science High School located in Uijeongbu, Gyeonggi-do this month. Interim President of SUNY Korea, Dr. Arthur H. Lee, spoke with the students about SUNY Korea’s global learning environment, high-level English courses and curriculum, and the university’s values, which include fostering the character, passion and curiosity of students so that they may be leaders in the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution. 

The students gathered in the auditorium for two hours to find out more about the five departments at SUNY Korea Stony Brook: Technological Systems Management, Mechanical Engineering, Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Computer Science, and Business Management. They showed great interest in the curriculum and career information given in the session. Admissions Administrator Dongyeop Yeon offered a detailed explanation of the admission process and fielded questions in a Q&A held at the end of the talk. 

Seo-yeon Bae, a Gyeonggi North Science High School student who participated in the information session, said, “It was very impressive that the president found his major, computer science, after changing majors many times starting from chemistry. I also would like to experience many fields to find my true major.” 

Another student who participated the information session, Seo-yun Kim commented, “I thought I wouldn’t have the chance to study abroad for engineering due to financial issues. However, I was impressed to know that there is another way to go to an American college from Korea. The information session provided me with a new direction.”
