“I wish that more Hanyangians will feel pride of being Hanyangians,” commented Lee Woo-seok, a sophomore in the DIS (Division of International Studies). He added, “If anyone is interested in debate tournaments, forums, or conventions, be a participant and the pride of Hanyang University.
Lee shows his hope for Hanyangians by acting upon it himself. He is currently a president of DIS of Hanyang debate team and a vice president of KIDA (Korea Intervarsity Debating Association), a collaboration of all debate society in Korea.
  In addition, Lee is passionate about public speaking and debate. Such is displayed by his constant involvement in various programs inside and outside Korea. For example, On May 7, Lee Woo-seok was a paper presenter at World Civic Youth Forum to share his idea on how water sanitation can bring about world peace. Lee said with a laugh, “I am very interested in subjects dealing with war and peace. I am a realist.”
  Currently, he is considering joining the Harvard Project for Asian International Relations which will be held in July as well as Australs, a debate competition held in Australia. Previously participated activity includes NEAN (Northeast Asian Network) held in Yonsei University. In addition, Lee was chosen from many candidates to be a delegate of South Korea at Education without Borders held at the end of March through beginning of April this year at Dubai. There, he introduced Hanyang, and its exchange programs available to students interested in Hanyang. Moreover, at KSWEE (Korea Studies Workshop for European Educators) last summer hosted by Hanyang, Lee was an interpreter for professors, principals, and teachers from Europe. Inspired, one high school teacher requested a Korean student be sent from Hanyang to introduce the university to his students in Europe.
  When asked about DIS of Hanyang debate team, Lee Woo-seok considers himself lucky and proud to be the leader of national debate champions. “We have the first place debaters in South Korea, the third best speaker as well as the second and third best adjudicators in South Korea” he said. On a weekly basis, the DIS of Hanyang debate team holds practice sessions every Monday. He and the staff teach rookie debaters the formats and skills of debate in addition to holding joint debate sessions with other schools. He added, “This year, the number of rookie debaters is the largest participant group in DIS debate history. This only shows that more students are interested in debate now. Consequently, DIS students are showing much passion for debate.”
  Unfortunately, non-DIS students cannot be involved in DIS of Hanyang debate team but are welcome to watch the debate practice. If non-DIS students are interested in debate, Lee suggests joining the overall Hanyang debate team.
  Lee Woo-seok said he really desires that people are more informed about the DIS (Division of International Studies). Taking the English program is a way to get a bit of experience of what it is like to be educated abroad with high class quality professors. Thus, he encourages those non-DIS students to take classes offered by DIS to get a “fresh squeeze” of DIS.
