THE CAMPUS of Yonsei University at the crack of dawn is as silent as a grave. Yet, as the morning light gradually stretches across the campus, several workers start to fill in the silence. At the three-way intersection of Baekyang-ro, the parking lot attendant gives directions to a driver while the security guard sweeps away the fallen leaves. Inside the campus buildings, the cleaning ladies mop the floors and clean the restrooms. Inside the cafeterias, the cooks bustle around the kitchen, chopping vegetables, making pizzas and greasing up frying pans. Around the corner, a man washes the dishes.

   These people work hard to keep our campus secure, organized, and clean. Although the school cannot operate without them, their hard work seems to be neglected as they work in places that are hidden from our view and so they are rarely accepted as members of the Yonsei community. Yet, they go out of their way to help and care for the students, faculty, and staff. Without them, our school life would not be as safe and convenient as it is today.

   “Just like the students who fought for the laborers’ rights a few years ago, we work hard to provide students with a clean and healthy environment. Our society becomes much better when we help each other.”

   “To do my job, I have to wake up at 4 a.m. every morning and get on the first bus. As I walked to the bus station on the first day of work, I was expecting no one to be there. But I was wrong. The morning bus was teeming with life and vivacity. I realized that I am not the only one who starts the day early. I began to enjoy the fresh morning air every day.”
