The phrases scribbled on the wall of one woman’s bathroom inside the Centennial Library speak of the affection Ewha students have for their school. They say, “I really love our school. Although I always enumerate complaints to others that there are no boys at school, and that the tuition fees are too high, our school is very adorable.” In honor of Ewha’s Foundation Day, May 31, and to encourage more such affection towards Ewha, the Ewha Voice surveyed 150 students to find the three most popular reasons (out of 10 choices offered) for why they cannot help falling in love with Ewha.
The number one reason that students chose (57.3%) was the positive reputation that Ewha has as one of the most prominent universities in

The number three reason (32%) was the rumor that is widely spread throughout the country that Ewha students not only have good looks but also are good at studying. Kang Ji-hye (Educational Technology, 2) said, “I feel that it is not just a rumor but a fact based on justifiable evidence.

According to the students surveyed, Ewha as a whole is now a steadfast stealer of their hearts, regardless of some temporary grumbles about the school. On their way to campus, as they are joined by the illuminating sunshine and gathered by the gestures of the trees swayed by the gentle summer breeze, students are once again tenderly touched by the charms of Ewha.
