       The busy test season is over and students are searching for activities to enjoy and feel active again. However, except for some noise coming from the finishing touches of the constructions, the campus seems to be quiet, inactive, and somewhat dull, which is really not what Ewha studPeents want. 

 
  It was on March that the Student Welfare Center (SWC) also realized the campus also needed a livelier atmosphere and held a contest for coordinating a cultural event for Ewha students. “The SWC wanted to hold performance festivals more frequently to activate the school’s atmosphere during the semester and therefore decided to financially support students who want to be in charge of holding such events,” said Lee Jong-won, a staff member of the SWC.

 Four teams who wished to plan cultural events applied to the contest with their own ideas. “The only requirement for application was that the team must be comprised of Ewha students,” said Lee. In the end, the team Pear Play won the support and will be the first to hold its cultural festival throughout the year 2008.  

 

  Lim thinks that the reason for this was the lack of advertisement and cold weather which may have stopped many students from coming to the performance. “However, I believe these problems can be bettered during our next event on May 19. I urge many students to show their passion and enjoy the performances with their friends,” said Lim.

The first event was held in April and 10 teams performed in the program coordinated by Pear Play. There were no specific requirements to go on the stage as long as the activities were organized by Ewha students. “The motive of the event is making our own culture of enjoying festivals providing Ewha students a stage for their performance,” said Lim Sol (Physical education, 3), who in charges of the sponsorships of Pear Play team. The performances were mostly held by student clubs, including ReleAse (rock band), ESAOS (orchestra), and Pyrus (cheering squad). Other than the clubs, performances by students from the Department of Music and a dance contest for the audience were also held. Kim Eun-hee (Mathematics, 2), a member of Pyrus said, “Pear Play provided a good opportunity for clubs and students to perform what they practiced through the semester. But it was a great pity that the number of students participating in the event was less than we expected.”

The second event coordinated by Pear Play will be on May 19 in front of the Ewha Athletics Track at 6 p.m. The theme of the upcoming event is RH+, which is the name of a blood type, but is also taken from the first letters of “rock” and “hip-hop.” As opposed to the former event, the stage will primarily be filled with rock and hip-hop performances. “Our team thought that rock and hip-hop represents the youth better than any other music genre. I hope we can make Ewha students’ blood boil and bring out their passion through rock and hip-hop,” said Lim. “This will be only possible when Ewha students come to the stage and enjoy the shows,” she added.
