The concerned voices of Ewha students prompting reform on various campus issues have persisted throughout the years. In this volume’s special, we will re-visit some of the issues reported since January 2011 and examine those that were improved and others that still need attention. Out of approximately 20 issues reported, the Ewha Voice has chosen a few that hold the most significance to Ewha students.
College of Art & Design reduces robberies by installing security cameras
The College of Art & Design installed security cameras in the Arts & Design Building and the Music Building in May this year in response to a report that some students’ work had been stolen due to a lack of security system in the artwork storerooms.
In September 2011, some students majoring in Art realized their works that had been left in the storeroom on the sixth floor of the Arts & Design Building A were missing.
As similar cases were reported and complaints on the poor security system in the artwork storerooms rose, students requested the installation of security cameras .
The Office of General Administration approved the request, placing three security cameras inside the Arts & Design Building A last October and one security camera outside the Music Building in May this year.
Before the installation of the security cameras, about five cases of stolen works were reported in a month, whereas none have been reported since the security cameras were put in place. Students of the department welcome the addition of the cameras to the buildings.
“Nowadays, I feel safe to leave behind the pieces I have been working on and also do not hear about robberies from other students anymore,” Sung Hyun-jin (Clothing & Textile, 2) said.
