Every student has different values and goals that they pursue in life. However, referring to other students’ goals is not only entertaining but can also be informative. The Argus met with four students and listened to their resolutions before 2017 comes to an end.
Chu Seung-ho, Dept. of English Linguistics ‘17
I want to practice singing and be good at it. Before entering university, I could not spend my time doing what I truly wanted to do because my high school life was mostly confined to studying books and math. Now, as a university student, I have great freedom which I could not even imagine back in those days. I want to use this time to broaden my experience. Specifically, I am planning to develop my singing skills as I have always been fond of listening to songs, but have not tried them at karaoke room.
Choi Jae-ho, Dept. of Business ‘17
In South Korea, every man should serve the nation for two years in the military. What I wish to achieve before the end of 2017 and before I enter the military is to make friends. Friends here do not mean acquaintances or those you have shallow relationships with, but lifelong friends. It would be good if I fulfill this desire within my few months left.
You Ha-ram, Division of International Studies ‘17
There are a few goals I have in mind before the end of 2017. First of all, I would like to go on a diet and hopefully lose some weight. Also, I will try to make my school life more meaningful and enjoyable. I wish to build relationships with diverse people while getting closer to people I am already friendly with. In terms of academics, I am planning to delve into studying various subjects and prepare much harder for exams than I did in the past.
Kim Ser-vin, Division of International Studies ‘17
My primary goal in 2017 is to be close with more friends within my department. Back in last semester, I mostly hung out with friends I already knew from different universities, so I did not have much of a chance to interact with those in my own department. I think it was because of my inactive personality. This semester, I want to be more active and thereby, build rapport with more students from DIS that I did not know or was not friendly with. To realize this goal, I joined two clubs that would provide me a good opportunity.
