SUNY Koreaㅣ2018-09-27 17:36

On September 18, 2018, from 5 PM to 8 PM, IGC Housing opened the first flea market.  For the event, 6 booths and two food trucks were placed in front of Dormitory A. While some booths provided a place to experience Korea’s traditional games, others offered students of the IGC the opportunity to buy and sell used products at a cheap price.

Hae-na Kong of the IGC Foundation mentioned that a place was provided for the Chuseok Holiday to experience Korea’s traditional culture. The event was planned to provide a place where all IGC members could interact and enjoy themselves.

The reaction of students for this event was positive. Students formed a big crowd in front of the food trucks. Won Gu of SUNY Korea mentioned that she was happy to have a place where she could socialize with her friends in this busy life, and she hoped this event would be offered frequently.

Through this event, we hope that people in the IGC could get together and have a great time. We also hope to increase awareness of the IGC through making the flea market an annual event.
