Students Oppose Siheung Residential College
October 26, 2013 In November, SNU, the city of Siheung and Halla Engineering and Construction Corp. will start negotiations on the SNU Siheung Campus, but with resistance from SNU students and Siheung residents, the new campus is becoming a controversy. SNU planned to build a residential college in Siheung that can accommodate 4000 people and to make it mandatory for undergraduate students to spend a certain period of time on the newly constructed campus. The SNU Student Council has announced its opinion that the residential college in Siheung will sever relations between students and destroy student clubs and councils, thereby eroding the SNU college culture. Siheung residents oppose the plan as SNU and Halla Engineering will purchase the land for the campus premises at one-fourth of the original price. more

Politicians Attack SNU for Hiring Too Many Professors with US Doctorate Degrees
October 30, 2013 The fact that approximately 50 percent of SNU professors have doctorate degrees from US universities was criticized at the annual national inquiry. Out of 1902 SNU professors, 952 received their doctorate degrees in the US. Other countries in which degrees were received include Germany (63), the United Kingdom (50), Japan (43) and France (36). Only 657 professors (34.5 percent) received their doctorate degrees in Korea. The Korean doctorate rate of other national universities remained relatively high at 63.2 percent. SNU explained that although it strives for academic diversity, this phenomenon is partly unavoidable as US colleges are leading many areas of study these days. more
