"Autumn, the year's last, loveliest smile - William Cullen Bryant"
Lasting from September through early November, autumn is indeed one of the best seasons to go in South Korea. The indescribable beauty of red orange yellow fall foliage and the breeze make it perfect to stroll around the city decorated with golden yellow to reddish orange autumnal leaves.
There are a lot of fall foliage destinations in Seoul such as Seoul Grand Park, Haneul Park, Deoksugung Palace, and others, and among them is my own university, Yonsei University. After the reconstruction months ago, Yonsei University turned into a really beautiful campus with the newly popular Baekyang-ro (the main street of the university) and during autumn, the giant yellowish trees along the street make this road beautifully decorated.
For those who do not know what is Yonsei University, Yonsei University (연세대학교 (延世大學校)) is a private research university in Seoul, South Korea. It is one of Korea's three SKY universities, considered the most prestigious in the country. Yonsei was established in 1885 and is the oldest university in South Korea. Today, Yonsei operates its main campus in Seoul and has extensive programs in Korean and English.
This is my second year in this university and I am currently majoring in International Commerce. The first time I came here, the university was full of a lot of constructions and I did not see any beauty from this university, but now, I admit it, this university is not only perfect for studying (hmm?) but also for recreation ^^
This is the Baekyang-ro!
The so-popular Yonsei's eagle (doksuri in Korean) is the symbol of Yonsei University.
This is the main library of Yonsei. Do you notice something from the building? Yes, they build this building just like the collection of books in the library!
This is the main building of Yonsei, Underwood hall (the administrative office). And in front of the building is the statue of Underwood (He is one of the founders of the university).
