Global Temple Conference

Many exciting field trips have been planned to sites of archaeological, historical, and cultural significance in and around Seoul, including to a Korean folk village and the DMZ.

Students will have a chance to explore Korea by visiting dynamic cultural sites around the peninsula. Destinations include locations in Seoul and the surrounding countryside where students can experience aspects of both modern and traditional Korean life first-hand. These weekly excursions will also give students visiting from all over the world a chance to get to know each other, as well as other international students, and develop lasting friendships.

The Ewha International Co-Ed Summer College (Ewha ISC) at Ewha Womans University and the program director will organize a variety of co-cirricular cultural activities and field-trips throughout Seoul and other areas of Korea. This may include visits to a Korean Folk Village, a lesson in Making Kimchi at the Museum Kimchikan, a performance at the Cinecore Bibap Theatre, the trip to Everland Amusement Park, an excursion to the House of Sharing, a tour of Tongil Tower, as well as welcome and farewell ceremonies and luncheons.

Ewha ISC University will also organize a variety of extra-curricular activities for Korean and international students, and students will have the opportunity to participate in PEACE (Professional Ewhaians At Cultural Exchange) Buddies, a program organized by Ewha ISC to introduce international students to local students. The PEACE buddies are recruited through paper screening and interviews and are required to speak a foreign language fluently and participate at least one year. The PEACE buddies’ job is to help the international students adjust to Ewha and in Seoul. International students are matched 1:1 with PEACE buddies and receive ‘Hello’ mail via e-mail from their own designated buddy in the beginning of June prior to arrival in Korea. At the opening ceremony & orientation, the PEACE Buddies will be the first Ewha students to greet international students and conduct a campus tour in a group of 10-15 students in different languages. Apart from the field trips organized by the Ewha ISC, the buddies casually arrange numerous activities for international students, and take students to hang-out places and events around Seoul and Korea. By interacting with the buddies, international students will be able to expand their social network in Korea to other areas beyond the school and take full advantage of what Ewha and Korea can offer. Questions concerning everyday life at Ewha and other extra-curricular activities planned by the PEACE buddies can be directed to: ewhapeacebuddy@gmail.com. The Ewha PEACE buddy is an official student organization under the Office of International Affairs, and the buddies are student volunteers giving you help in all respects. Please respect and appreciate their volunteer work.
