WEST LIBERTY, W.Va., Oct. 20, 2016 — The new partnership between Hanbat National University (South Korea) and West Liberty University will be described fully in a special presentation to be held at noon, Wednesday, Oct. 26.
The event will take place in the Alumni Room, College Union and is being coordinated by Associate Professor of Art Moonjung Kang, a native of Korea who has taught at WLU since fall 2009 in the College of Arts and Communication.
“This partnership is growing and I want all students to be aware of the opportunity it offers to study abroad and benefit from the exchange of knowledge between our university and a national university in the Republic of Korea,” she said. “It is not just for graphic design majors and art students.”
Kang will discuss her recent study abroad during Summer 2016. Four graphic design students: Jenny Ball, Courtney Carter, MariChris Pangilinan and Rosalie A. Haizlett, who traveled with her for study also will be part of the presentation. The students will share their experience and resulting work with campus.
Professor Kang will also share her plans on exchange students joining campus on the Hilltop and update everyone on her efforts.
Most importantly, this is a chance for any student of any discipline or any professor to inquire about details on this new chance to study abroad in South Korea.
For more information, please see the March 24 press release that announced the Hanbat University partnership last spring or call Professor Kang at 304.336.8531.
