Around 1,600 freshmen and their parents gathered on March 12, 2015 at the main auditorium on campus for the KAIST convocation ceremony. A total of 796 freshmen joined the convocation ceremony.

The ceremony proceeded with the freshmen oath, administered by freshmen representatives Ja-Young Ryu (a graduate of the Korea Science Academy) and Yun-Min Song (a graduate of Changwon Science High School). Vice Minister Jae-Yoo Choi of Science, ICT and Future Planning, the Republic of Korea, and President Steve Kang of KAIST delivered congratulatory messages, respectively. Members of KAIST student clubs performed a music concert to celebrate the event.

In his message, Vice Minister Choi said, “Scientists should not be afraid of failure but have a challenging spirit. As always, the Korean government will provide students with generous support by creating an environment for education and research, in which students can reach their potential and realize imagination into reality.”

President Kang urged students to be respectful and thankful to others, to master their expertise in depth, to take social responsibilities, and to improve on global communication skills. He continued, “With all the best intellectuals you will meet at KAIST, you will face a much more challenging environment compared to high school. Even if it gets too difficult and you fail, do not be discouraged but please have the heart to get back up and try again.”
