UA&P President meets with Korean students

UA&P President Jose Maria Mariano met with 12 Korean students in a special lunch and get-together on August 16. The event was part of the JAM Session series and the University Week celebration.

Dr. Mariano listened as the students spoke about their concerns, including plans by Han Sarang, the Korean students’ community at UA&P. Hera Lee, head of the Korean group, said they will coordinate with University management in future Han Sarang activities.

Currently Korean students account for about three percent of the total student population at UA&P. A rise in Korean enrollees has also been observed in the past few years — from 29 in 2008 to 49 in 2011.

Other attendees of the Session were Jane Kang, Amy Kang, So-hee Kim, Kelly Kim, Monica Lee, So-hyun Lee, Lisa Park, David Park, Carter Nam, Yoon-sang Shin, and Grace Choi.

As UA&P advances to its 2018 milestone, the University maintains its commitment to the “integral human development of the peoples of the Asia-Pacific region” by welcoming international students.

The JAM Session is a get-together series of the President with the various members of the UA&P community. Previous sessions include those with scholars and their parents, the Junior Marketing Communications team, and recipients of last year’s Service Awards.
