Hanwoori Hall has abolished its roll call system on Feb. 26 due to the continuous complaints from the students. The roll call system, in which Hanwoori Hall residence tutors supervise residents by visiting each student’s room every day at 11 p.m., received 47 percent of replies from residents agreeing on abolishing the roll call system and 46 percent replying that the system was in need of improvement in a survey conducted in April 2012. Accordingly, Hanwoori Hall lessened the number of roll calls from seven times to five times a week in May 2012 as a trial operation. Instead, Hanwoori Hall implemented a new system, the Weekly Check-up. As the roll call system is lifted, the curfew is now 12.
