Hello~ DICEians~!! I’m HyeMi Kim. It gives me great pleasure to introduce myself as the dean of DICE. Above all, I welcome you to DICE, the most exciting and the only international dormitory in POSTECH. DICE is an abbreviation for ‘Dormitory for International Cultural Exchange’. Students from countries all over the world live in DICE along with Korean students. I have a dream that DICE will be- come a miniature world, where we can share the cultures of many countries, such as food, music and manners. I’m sure this dream will come true if all DICEians enjoy DICE activities with an open-mind.
DICE is a great family! And we are all members. If you are faced with a problem, you can just knock on another DICEian’s door and they will try their best to help you. One of the basic rules of DICE is saying hello to others even though you don’t know who he/she is. Saying hello is the best way to become closer with others, and I’m sure that DICE residents are closer together than residents of any other dormitory. Most of us live far away from our hometown, especially interna- tional students. However, your roommate or your neighbors can be your brother or sister. Just say hello and become family!!
DICE is a miniature world! A major problem of DICE is that not many interna- tional students participate in DICE activities. Sadly, this makes it hard for us to exchange Korean culture with you. So, I’m preparing lots of activities that are helpful and enjoyable to international students. Also, if you have any ideas, please share with us! Don’t feel shy about socializing with Korean students. We can easily overcome any problems resulting from culture differences, if you try to share yours with us and explain it to others. Just be open-minded and accept cultural difference!!
Living in DICE is a good chance to meet various friends who come from many countries. Do not lose this great opportunity and enjoy it! I will try my best to make DICE the most enjoyable dormitory as well as a place for rest. Open your mind, your heart and say hello to your friends.
