first of all, before you start reading/looking through my post, I would like to warn you that this is a 60+ picture post. and also the pictures are tuned to high saturation so the real thing might not be as colourful as what you will see later on but it’s nonetheless very beautiful =D.
so, shall we start the tour?
you shall know your tour guide of the day, JAMIE SSI!
Yonsei is a HUGE. I repeat, HUGE University. one of the hugest here in Seoul. walking from one end to the other would take more than 30minutes. and they have a shuttle bus for students because it’s just too big to walk around.
say hi to spring! it’s a wonder how flowers could bloom in such a short span! and it’s not ALL bloomed yet!
the path I walk everyday to class. it takes 20minutes to walk to the Language Institute building from the main gate. so I guess you have a picture of how huge Yonsei is yes?
my view on the way =D.
and those very pretty shortcuts. when it rains it’s quite disgusting to walk through here though. but Yonsei is like on a hill hence walking around is VERY VERY tiring U_U. but at least it’s very beautiful so you would feel a little encouraged to walk through it even when you’re already tired.
and we are near!
welcome to Yonsei KLI =D.
how our classes look like. we have a tray below our seats to put books/bags! how cool is that hehehe.
the student. (Joseph Lee if you are reading this : YOUR BOTTLE!!!)
we had to do presentations and here’s Tom (Korean American) reciting his presentation to Lyn (Viet). mine’s next week. the topic is “the person I would like to meet” gosh, really, there’s nobody I would like to meet for a good reason. it’s always like superstars just mainly because they are hot T_T.
I wasn’t the only one taking pictures.
our very pretty 읽기 teacher =D.
Mundura from Zimbabwe!
here comes my favourite two. Sally (Korean Austrian) and Kemal (Turkey)! they are so adorable hahaha the top is supposed to be the action for BOING BOING. it actually doesn’t really mean anything >_>” just a boink boink sound. like pigs I guess? haha. and the cat claws. I can’t help but to notice how adorable Chisa (Japan) laughs behind. xD.
Kemal! he came here to study Korean (and is very awesome in it. also our Monitor) because his girlfriend he met while studying in China is Korean! how romantic U_U.
Megumi <3. she’s as cute as she is named. her name and her face are like directly proportional in my opinion haha. a girl whose cuteness projects from the inside till the outside.
the very adorable Megumi. =DDD.
how my study table look most of the time. =D. and my notebook. tsk tsk very messy notes.
I like how they still uses the blackboard. so vintage U_U. it’s like almost extinct in KL. or at least at the schools I went to.
my camera hates me. but I only look good in pictures which blurred me out well because.. you cannot see my imperfections haha. this is the ALTERNATE route from the main road to the KLI.
but because I am an awesome tour guide I took the more tiring way (with a lot of hills) home so that I could show you the beautiful flowers.
ain’t it pretty? at this junction is where the Shuttle Bus normally stops. I got so lazy these days I took the bus for 2 days straight already. =S.
and the walking route. ahhhhhh greenery. finally. it is getting warmer now. thick winter jackets are already in the luggage under my bed U_U. and I’ve only worn it a few times T_T. brought 4 thick coats which would easily fill a huge luggage bag and now I can’t use them anymore =(.
hills. this road leads to the dorms I think. had never walked up. too huge to explore =S. I bet students whom have studied in Yonsei KLI for a year wouldn’t have went through this road as well. haha.
I guess this is supposed be some river during summer =D. behind’s the pathway (shortcut) for us KLI students to walk.
the office buildings.
more. absolutely love this picture. my favourite of this post. I took it on the election day (Wednesday) and hence there wasn’t many people around since it’s a public holiday. just that we foreigners don’t get any holidays haha.
this is actually the pretty building BEHIND the famous Yonsei building. but I think this is prettier.
they also planted flowers! <3. my mom would go gaga if she’s here haha.
look at that white tree! this is so Hogwarts I don’t know why.
and the popular main building where people recognize. =D.
weird because the main building doesn’t have floorings haha. I couldn’t deny the fact that Yonsei is the prettiest Uni (well, only these two parts) among ALL the Universities! so I felt other than the Urban Ewha University which is very central and easy to find, Yonsei is a MUST visit as well.
these are not Sakura’s. Cherry Blossoms here aren’t really pink U_U. but since there were a lot of flowers I love this place =3.
an uncle saw me camwhoring and thought it must be difficult to hold on to such a huge and heavy camera with one hand so he came and offered to take a picture for me U_U.
walking halfway another man came and told me he would take a picture for me knowing that I am a foreigner mainly because I had a hugeass camera =S. so nice of them U_U. but instead of thinking I was a foreign student, he must’ve thought I’m a tourist hahaha.
the huge Yonsei stage.
there was only 1 bloomed Cherry Blossom tree in Yonsei T_T. and it’s in front of the Samsung Library.
even though white, it’s still so pretty =3.
guess these pink flowers are the most photogenic. =3. by the way, you have to walk for perhaps 5 minutes from the main gate to get to that pretty building. good thing is that you just have to walk STRAIGHTTTTTTTTT.
get the picture of how it’s like?
the Samsung Library. will show you one day about how magnificent this 7 floor library is. there are 24 hour study rooms and even rooms for group discussions and all which looked similar to a company’s discussion room. totally hotel-like. I would give it 7 stars! also, you have to REGISTER your place and you can only use it for a certain time limit. it’s mad. MADDDDDDD. there are plenty of computers (heard that there are dual screened ones as well) and a section with HUGE touchscreen screens for you to browse through newspaper from all over the world. not to mention, a mini museum. amazing much?
messy but creative! =D.
that’s the Student Lounge where you can go to if you have any inquiries and also below it there’s Woori Bank, Korea Post and HUGE canteens (a few of them!) and shops for you to buy Yonsei souvenirs.
walk through here every. single. day.
have always noticed this traditional looking gate. so I decided to pay a visit to it =D.
the inside. actually, there’s nothing much in it =S.
and these. which I really like. haha.
the Eagle represents Yonsei. it’s like Yonsei’s trademark.
shuttle bus stand! whenever you see this you know you could wait for a bus. =D. for free! but there’s a time frame for it so don’t wait there dumbly haha. check the time schedule.
see that awesome bridge? they have one awesome architect for it.
at random parts of Yonsei hahaha.
Margaretti! she’s so very pretty yes? ^_______^. she’s still the nicest person I’ve met here.
okay it ends here for now. =D.
