 On April 15, Chung Sye-kyun (’71, Law) who was a former Chairman of the National Assembly and an alumnus of Korea University (KU) came as a special guest. On April 18, 1960, many alumni contributed to the establishment of democracy in Korea, by actively participating in protests against dictatorship for the first time among the universities. The lecture was held to revitalize their spirits of courage and honor their noble actions. 

Chung first gave an introduction of himself and emphasized that KU had shaped him as a person he stands today. Since the Japan annexation until the present day, Korea has experienced and cultivated groundbreaking achievements with KU as a sturdy supporter that propelled social and economic development. 

Chung also stressed that the younger generation should uphold the passion.” The time has changed and new perspectives and cultures are established. Yet, the passion about righteousness should be maintained.” As our school motto aims to foster students into, “intellectual and wild-natured members of KU community”, he wanted KU students to maintain this spirit and construct a positive future for KU.
