Likewise, Ewha Womans University Museum will hold an exhibition under the title of “130 years of Memory in Relics” from May 31. Among the exhibits are Ewha Hakdang diploma and the desk used by Appenzeller, a former Ewha president.
In addition to the exhibitions, some departments have held performances for the anniversary as well. College of Music performed Mozart’s opera Die Zauberflote from May 12 to 14.

As for the lectures, Ewha alumni, scholars, and people with successful careers will share their stories. Ewha alumni Chae Eun-mi, the representative director of FedEx Korea, and Naver CEO Kim Sang-hun gave lectures on May 12 and 13 respectively.
Finally, the school will be holding reunions by inviting alumni from Korea and abroad. “Remind Chapel” and “Thanks and Praise Worship” will also be held at the Welch-Ryang Auditorium on May 30.
