There was a significant occurrence in CNU before the start of the spring semester. One of student representatives led newly accepted freshmen to believe participation in orientation is mandatory. According to information sent to the newest members: if a freshman doesn't attend the event, that person will have to pay a large fine and be labelded as an "outsider" in departmental activities. As the announcement was uncovered online and reported by the press, many people strongly resented the university. After a few days, many under-graduates were outraged at the dishonored university image caused by someone's words. Many students thought the representative should be given severe disciplinary action.
More important thing after the affair is that we should know the fundamental problem rather than worry about the fallout. The leader's improper direction is not an isolated incident. I think it is also shameful that freshmen have been manipulated. Is it a good university that has such bad customs?
As new semester starts, we can rebuild the good image by ourselves. <The Chungdae Poso> will exert all efforts to be one of CNU pride asthe only English official press in campus. Our new slogan in 2011 is "Post, Pride, and Passion." <The Chungdae Post> will try to ignite passion charged with pride. From now on, we will cover more interesting and fresh items with a deeper analysis. We will go forward in faith. "Post, Pride, and Passion."
