The space for CUK students’ creation and foundation tentatively named “Start-up Lounge” has been constructed on the second floor in Sophie Barrah Hall (student hall) this summer.
LINC+ Enterprise Organization in CUK planned the construction project of empty space last November after the contract for the campus bookstore located on the second floor of Sophie Barrah Hall expired last year.
The main hall is equipped with box stools and long desks and offers seven seminar rooms as free meeting spaces for students. In addition, the previous corridor space will be changed into a rest lounge with single couches and desks by the window.
“CUK plan to make Sophie Barrah Hall a mecca for student foundation and employment,” Kim Ji-sun in LINC+ Enterprise Organization of CUK said. “We are anticipating students actively exchanging opinions and ideas through this place.”
When asked for his response to the new space, Yoon Suk-joo (international∙19) said, “Many projects need to have a meeting such as a club or a team assignment, but there were not enough places in the university.”, He also expressed the concern that “it can be trouble if students save a seat for a long time or make a mess in this place.”
Excepting when CUK holds the programs related to students’ foundation in the semester, the main hall and the corridor will stay open for students. Students must make reservations before using the seminar rooms.
In addition, the Foundation Education Innovation Center (창업교육혁신센터) opened a naming contest for the official name of the place from September 8 for three days. About 90 students participated and the signboard will be made with the selected name.
The opening ceremony is scheduled for early October. It will proceed with other Maker programs like the “3D pen experience.”
Explain what a “foundation program” is. Otherwise, this is pretty good. Most importantly it’s publishable because of its original reporting.
