YONSEI UNIV. held a blood drive from May 2 to 10 as a
part of its 120th Anniversary celebration. The event took place in front of the
Central Library, the Underwood Statue, the Gymnasium and the 2nd floor of the
Student Union from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The blood drive was hosted by the
Korean Red Cross's Central Blood-center and the SA (Student Association) to help
patients at the Severance Hospital suffering from leukemia and other blood
related diseases. The hosts of the drive offered prizes to the 893 students who
contributed their blood to the cause. It is only a fraction of the 1200 that the
school expected but awareness and participation has increased greatly from last
Starting in July, the school will give access to Red Cross buses to the
campus to raise more blood for Severance Hospital. The blood draw will also take
place at the Wonju Campus, from April 25 to June 30.
