A meeting was arranged where the students and the HUFS vice president could communicate at the Cyber Building, Seoul Campus on Oct. 13.
The vice president, along with the deans and staff of departments responsible for the school management, attended the meeting and answered the students’ questions.
Many questions were asked, including questions about the menstruation policy. HUFSans questioned the vice president about the specific mechanism of the menstruation day-off and why there was a two time limit, when menstruation is a monthly phenomenon.
He clarified that female students can use this policy twice for each class in every semester and that the limit was not officially set as there would be a survey on students prior to the final exam. Furthermore, he stressed that HUFS is aware of possible abuse and is working on it with particular attention.
HUFSans also inquired about the specific solutions to the commotion caused by a gang of high school students several times in the past and recently within the school. It has suddenly created a surge of discontent and anger among the students concerning the lax security of the school.
The vice president answered that the school would take measures such as upgrading the CCTVs and making it possible to report problems at any time of day.
Additionally, the school is considering whether to increase its security as well as scheduling a pet restriction stand.
