   On May 12, there was an opening ceremony for the main entrance in ERICA Campus. The President of Hanyang University (HYU), Kim Chong-yang, awarded appreciation plaque and gave a welcome address.
   "Last September in 2009, we tore the former gate down by ourselves and decided to rebuild it to change HYU from a university devoted to the society to a university to newly enlighten the society," said Kim. "This whole new paradigm of the gate will not be a separation of local community and university anymore but will be a square of sincere communication," he added.
   AGORA is the name of the gates, which is a Greek word for 'square'. It is composed of two gates, which seem as if they are rising from the earth. AGORA 1 is facing the campus from the local community, and AGORA 2 is facing the local community from the campus. This means that HYU is trying to reach  out to the local community and to be a power of society.
   Opinions of students about the gates are quite positive. "I like the main entrance because of the meaning and it is unique shape," said Noh Hee-Jin, a Freshman in Major in French Language and Culture. "Plus, I like the exterior materials of the gates. It is very breaking the mold," Noh added.
