“As an engineering major studying in Indonesia, I had always wanted to study and live on a campus with advanced technology. I knew that Korea is one of the highest technology countries in the world with cutting-edge facilities, and I chose Yonsei University because of its technological advancement and offering of convenient tech features on campus; even the cafeteria’s ordering system is modern!
The good vibe on campus makes me feel really comfortable studying here. One my favorite spots is the ‘no-stress’ lounge room with resting sofas located in the library. You can tell that Yonsei is thoughtful of providing accommodative facilities that meet students’ needs, especially when they need to take a break from studying. I also enjoy the open, free Sinchon area surrounding the campus, which holds festivals and events on weekends. I look forward to spreading the positivity I am experiencing here to my friends when I return to Indonesia.”
