All POSTECH members were cordially invited to 2017 Matriculation Ceremony held on Friday, Feb 17, 2017. The ’17 undergraduates gathered in Auditorium square, with the flowing black ceremonial gowns on, while freshmen’s families sat by inside the Auditorium and POSTECH Orchestra performed in the Auditorium hall. Student representatives from 11 departments, newcomers in B.A., M.S., and Ph.D entered the Auditorium by respective order. Matriculation ceremony was held in the Auditorium from 11 A.M. to 11:50 A.M., starting off with opening declaration and announcement of the guests. After the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag, the Dean of Academic Affairs briefly introduced the history of POSTECH and gave a report on the academic affairs. In 2017 spring, a total of 807 new students (310 B.A., 137 M.S., 69 Ph.D, 291 M.S.-Ph.D integrated program candidates) were granted entrance to POSTECH. Lee Chang-ho (EE 17) was invited up to the podium for a freshmen’s resolution, titled “2017 freshmen Postechian’s way to go.” The mic was then passed on to President Kim Do-Yeon, for a short matriculation address. An unprecedented talk show followed up; Professor Lee Gun-hong (CHEM), Jang Yun-seon (IME 14, President of Undergraduate Association), and three freshmen including Kim Seung-il (CITE 17), Kim Woo-seok (LIFE 17), Lee Hyo-in (ME 17) as panels, with Kim Jung-won (LIFE 14) as emcee of the show. Throughout the event, three keywords were confirmed through surveys conducted during Undergraduates’ Orientation (1. Losing Fellowship, 2. Concerns about career, 3. Studies) were raised as the core, and all the while, an easy, light mood rested. Each of the student panels were given the chance to ask and talk about their worries, hopes and questions about POSTECH and university life, and the president/professor panels unraveled the realities and truths about the life in POSTECH with their authentic experiences. In retrospect, 2017’s matriculation ceremony was replete with memorable advices for the freshmen while securing the formalities and memorable pictures.
