  • A Day Trip to Lotte World">A Day Trip to Lotte World

    Anastasiia Lepikhina shares her experience of the last studentexcursion to Lotte World, hosting the world’s largest indoor them park.“Lotte World is a great amusement park located in Seoul,South Korea. At the end of the spring semester, we visited this place withSolBridgers and had a lot of fun there. This was also the first time StudentCouncil organized a unique Excursion with a discount for prospective graduates.Many students signed up for this trip, and I was sure I wouldn’t enjoy thatplace alone, and that’s how it went! Apart from my friends, I made new friendsand talked with students from other countries I didn’t know before. Lotte Worldis divided into two parts, outdoor and indoor areas. Even though the lines werelong, everything exceeded our expectations. After riding the attractions insideand eating some lunch - which was amazingly good, we moved outside. Theattractions outdoors are more for the adults, as they are bigger and scarier. Ididn’t overcome my fear of riding the biggest ones, but you can easily have funthere even without riding them!In the evening, there was a grand parade inside, wheredancers from around the world represented various stories and movies. Myfavorite was Aladdin, as the performers were super lovely, greeting each of myfriends! We were tired but delighted by the end of the day, so it was anexcellent time riding the bus back as we shared the event experience. Overall,the trip to Lotte World was a fantastic thing to join. Thanks to StudentCouncil for making my university life in South Korea amusing and exciting!”

Unfortunately, due to the regulations, we could not have such eventsfor two years, so it was a big excitement for all of us. I was one of thefootball players at that event, and I would like to share some memorablemoments with you all. The first thing was thetraining before the tournament itself. Both football and dodgeball teamsgathered and started training 2-3 months before the games began. It was a goodidea because we got in good shape, ready to battle.Moving on to the start ofSports Day 2022, we were all nervous about our first match, primarily due tothe number of people who came to support us. However, the cheerleaders triedtheir best to help us win the game with their support.  As the matches went by,team nervosity came down, but the help of the supporters never stopped. Finally,in the semi-final match, we met with one of the strongest teams – the SportsDepartment. Overall, the game was enjoyable, despite some hiccups.Unfortunately, we lost the match 1-3. However, the next day, we got our bronze,winning the last game with a score of 7-0. It was a great way to finish thetournament. Woosong Sports Day 2022was one of the fascinating events throughout my time at SolBridge. I want tothank the supporters and cheerleaders; without them, we would not achieve theseresults."  We want to acknowledgeall the participants for showcasing the 'SolBridge spirit,' passion, andteamwork, and congratulations to SolBridge FC for placing 3rd in thetournament.

     On May 21, 2022, SolBridge students had a day's excursionto Yongin Folk Village in Gyeonggi-do. This excursion was the first triporganized by SolBridge Student Council after a two-year break during thepandemic. Yongin Folk village introduces to its visitors the traditionalculture from the late Joseon dynasty through classes and experiences.Konstantin Ivanov, one of the students that participated in this trip, shareshis experience.   "When I heard of the Yongin Folk Village excursionorganized by the Student Council, I was very excited since this was our firstschool-organized trip since the pandemic. The preparation and promotionsstarted long before the actual day. Initially, we were required to reservetickets to the trip through a google form before making the actual paymentswhich were well coordinated and organized.  The two-hour journey from Daejeon was smooth andcomfortable, not to mention the favorable Spring temperature, which was idealfor traveling. This visit to Yongin was not only exciting but also informative.I had the chance to discover and learn more about Korean culture; Seeingold-styled houses, watching traditional shows and performances, joining DIYworkshops, and making Korean souvenirs increased my appreciation for Koreanculture. Besides, I liked that we could move freely and explore on our own andonly had to be at the appointed time and place at the end of the excursion toreturn home. I had a great time and hope there will be more of these events tobroaden our mental boundaries.  I want to express my gratitude to the SolBridge StudentCouncil for a brilliant job."
