Although KU President Yeom Jae Ho had ambitious plans, year 2016 did not go smoothly. Many changes were brought to campus as well as controversies. The national political topography also led to changes in school policies, such as the future college and aroused student protests regarding President Park Geun-hye. The Granite Tower (GT) summarizes Korea University (KU)’s year 2016.
