Prof. Han In-young (72, Social Work):
"My memory rests with Dr. Helen Kim's talks at chapel. One time her talk was based on the book of 1 Thessalonians in the Bible, chapter five verses 16 to 18: "Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus. It helped me realize that we should be thankful for the talents we have been given in this life, and use them well. This message has stayed with me the long thirty years since I first heard it."
Prof. Kim Yu-soon (79, English Lang. & Lit.): "The steep hill where the Central Library now stands used to be called Pal bok Dong san (The Hill of the Beautitudes), and it was a favorite place for outdoor classes. In a Christian Studies course the professor took us up to the Hill and lectured sitting on the roots of the trees. It was very quiet and peaceful. Afterwards the professor would take us to the Jin Kwan to buy us coffee and chat after class."
Yoon Sung-hee (90, Science Education): "I remember the rows of magnolia trees with flowers in full bloom, lining the road to the Central Library and Welch-Ryang Auditorium. They started where Ewha Bridge ended and continued all the way to the Arts & Design Building C. There is an old saying that you leave Ewha when you've seen the magnolias bloom and wither four times."
Kim Hyo-jung & Sun Ju-yearn (International Studies, 2): "Where are a lot of things to remember about Ewha. I remember when I first started taking classes in the Humanities Building. The stairs in between the first and third floors were always so perplexing. They were very complicated and confusing then, but I got used to them.
It's also interesting how most of the people who eat regularly at Beautiful Garden happen to be freshmen and younger Ewha students, but you see everybody heading more towards the Student Cafeteria as you grow older."
