Coin Karaoke on Campus
Singing at the top of your lungs can sometimes be a healthy outlet for relieving your stress. The Undergraduate Student Association at KAIST offers just that. They created coin karaoke kiosks on campus where students can visit and sing their favorite songs across a variety of music genres. The KAI Coin Karaoke opened near the amphitheater, which consists of five kiosks for one to three people, two booths for six people, and one self-service coin machine. The operation hours are from 12 pm to 2 am, and it costs only 500 KRW for two songs. “I often enjoy going to a karaoke for singing whenever I feel down and need to let things out,” said Tae-Sik Im, a junior undergraduate of the School of Computing. “Now, I don’t have to leave campus to find a place to sing. It’s much more convenient and safer.” Many students even squeeze in time to stop by the karaoke during their breaks in between classes and enjoy belting out songs. Afterwards, students confessed, they are in a better mood for class.“We received a great deal of support from our students during our trial period in February. The facility officially opened on March 20 and anyone can go there and find some time to refresh themselves,” explained Young-Duck Cho, president of KAIST Undergraduate Student Association. He said all proceeds will go to students’ welfare fund. There are three rules to abide by for karaoke users though: no alcohol, no smoking, and no haning out.

KAIST's Student Job Fair 2015
KAIST’s Undergraduate Student Council and Graduate Student Council jointly hosted the 2015 KAIST Job Fair on September 2-3, 2015 at the Sports Complex on campus. The Job Fair took place for the sixth time this year. Forty-three companies, including some of the largest ones in Korea such as Samsung, Hyundai, LG, SK Construction, Hankook Tires, as well as those owned by KAIST graduates, have participated. The Job Fair specialized in three fields: information technology (IT) and electronic and mechanical engineering. The event included one-to-one employment counseling between human resources managers and students, mock interviews, employment orientations, job consulting, interview makeup lessons, resume writing and photo-shooting, etc. The international students who attended the event received information packages on employment from the participating companies. This event was open not only to KAIST students but also to students from other universities in the local community, offering more job opportunities to a wider range of people. Last year alone, a total of 1,200 people including KAIST students and graduates joined the KAIST’s Job Fair.
Professor YongKeun Park Produces Undergraduate Students with International Achievements
Three undergraduate students under the supervision of Professor YongKeun Park from the Department of Physics, KAIST, have published papers in globally renowned academic journals. The most recent publication was made by YoungJu Jo, a senior in physics. Jo’s paper entitled “Angle-resolved light scattering of individual rod-shaped bacteria based on Fourier transform light scattering” was published in the May 28th edition of Scientific Reports. Analyzing bacteria is a very important task in the field of health and food hygiene, but using the conventional biochemical methods of analysis takes days. However, observation with Jo’s newly developed method using light scattering analyzes bacteria within a matter of seconds. SangYeon Cho from the Department of Chemistry also published papers in Cell (2012) and Nature (2013), respectively, under the guidance of Professor Park. SangYeon Cho’s outstanding research achievements were recognized by Harvard and MIT. He was accepted with a full scholarship to Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology Graduate School. He will begin his graduate studies at Harvard-MIT this September. Last March, SeoEun Lee from the Department of Biology was the recipient of the Best Paper Award by the Optical Society of Korea. She plans to pursue a doctoral degree at the College of Physicians and Surgeons, Columbia University in New York. Professor Park said, “Undergraduate students, who are learning a variety of subjects concurrently, are at the most creative time of their lives. KAIST has offered many opportunities to undergraduate students to partake in various research programs.” - Picture (a) and (b): Rod-shaped bacteria’s phase image and light-scattering patterns - Picture (c): Quantitative analysis to illustrate the extraction of information from bacteria
