College is a scene of diversity. People who have lived different lives in different places go through college life with different goals. That is why we learn that everyone is different, and sometimes bump into each other, realizing that there are people like this or that, and that there is a world that I did not know yet. So when I experience a world I had not seen before, I feel extremely happy. Similarly, what The Granite Tower (GT) showed of diversity through the last issue gave me great joy. I learned of various views that differ from country to country through the news on International Students Festival and the article on Asian students’ thoughts regarding the way Asia should develop. I could encounter cultural diversity through the cover story on indie music and in-depth coverage on Daehakro plays. The joint article with Waseda University was fresh in that it viewed each country’s cultural exchange from another’s eyes.
Publishing a college English magazine in Korea itself means realizing diversity. I hope GT keeps on telling the countless diverse stories of the world to its readers.
