Latte is my favorite coffee beverage. Its taste is more understandable than Americano and deeper than macchiato. In my view, The Granite Tower (GT) is similar to a latte; it offers articles that most Korea University (KU) students can understand and think profoundly about.
As KU’s oldest and only English magazine, GT seems to give readers news and columns related to the readers’ lives. For example, many students at KU are now worried about whether Korea University Student Association (KUSA) will be part of Hankuk University Student Association (HUA). However, not many media in the university have tried to explain the conflict from the point of view of a third party, nor do they have as many student interviews. In addition, I believe many readers were also interested in reading the article about alcohol. Considering the fact that drinking is the subject that many KU students like to discuss (especially male students. Ha ha!) the article made the readers concentrate on reading.
Moreover, the magazine gives students the information that other media overlook. The section that I was impressed by was the article about the conflict between Turkey and Syria. As far as I know, even major media outlets in Korea have rarely reported on this subject as seriously as GT did. The report might seem exaggerated to some, but I am glad that I can learn such information through GT.
I know this magazine is not perfect—some sentences are too long to understand, and the arrangement of articles may frustrate the readers—but I am pretty sure that GT is one well-made latte that everyone loves. Please enjoy a book of happiness and a drink before it gets cold.
