Nowadays, many college students find it hard to have a real self-development time on the college campus due to academic and job preparation or limited club activities. There is a place called 'Sangsang Univ' that provides a variety of activities for these college students. To find out what it is and what specific activities it was, we met with Kim Min-ju, a university student manager at Sangsang Univ Incheon.
The Inha Times(IT) : Hello, please introduce yourself briefly.
Min-joo Kim : Hello, my name is Min-joo Kim, a member of the university management team who is planning and executing the program at Sangsang Univ Incheon.
IT : Please explain briefly the purpose and intent of the Sangsang Univ.
Kim : Sangsang Univ is a college student outreach community established by KT & G in 2010 as part of its social contribution activities. Sangsang Univ offers various programs in 14 regions across the country. The intent is to provide self-development opportunities through programs that span a variety of content that are not readily accessible on campus. In addition to simply participating in the program, we also provide a forum for sharing the results of self-development or new memories with college students.
IT : Then is it only available to university students? Is Sangsang Univ Incheon has a large percentage of Inha University students?
Kim : Yes, it is exclusively run by university students, including those who attend college and those who take a leave of absence. Inha University students are showing a lot of interest in Sangsang Univ Incheon, and also students from Kyungin University and Incheon University are participating too.
IT : What are the one-day classes currently operating in Sangsang Univ Incheon and what are the most popular classes?
Kim : As of August, 5 classes are in operation. There are leather craft DIY class, macrame class, dessert class, broadcast dance class and hip hop IN lap class. The most popular class is the dessert class where macaroons and cookies are made.
IT : If so, how is one day class established?
Kim : The class will be opened upon approval after opening proposal. Class opening proposals are suggested by students who wish to attend classes, or the instructor may suggest opening classes to share their talents. Once selected as a class, one-day classes or a total of five regular classes are operated.
IT : What are the criteria for approving availability?
Kim : There are several reviews. First, we will review at least 30 referrals to estimate the minimum number of classes that can be opened. After preceeding several reviews within 2 weeks, the decision is made. Classes with high risk of accidents or similar classes already in progress cannot be opened.
IT : Next, I originally thought that there was only one day class activity at Sangsang Univ. Besides the one-day class, there were various programs operated by Sangsang Univ. Please explain briefly.
Kim : There are a lot of things, such as volunteer activities, travel, imagination marketing school, imagination career camp, imagination compass camp, imagination LAB, and free space rental.
IT : imagination career camp and imagination compass camp are both a career program for college students, right? How is it different?
Kim : “ Imagine Career Camp” diagnoses the current state of readiness for college students who have a desired job but are having difficulty entering the company. And accordingly, it is a personalized career mentoring program that prescribes what you need to supplement.
On the other hand, the " Imagination Compass Camp '' is aimed at college students who are not sure what to do yet and who are worried about their career choices. An assistant program that gives them direction and motivation. It consists of an introduction to the job and a curriculum that draws a career roadmap.
IT : Do you have any last words for college students?
Kim : What I felt while planning various programs with Sangsang Univ's staff is that many college students wanted to be healed with their own development time and also tried to design their own careers. If you are interested or want to try something, I hope you try it more aggressively. I hope you can have that opportunity through Sangsang Univ.
