about the need for the New SA (Student Association) was held in the Col. of
Science building on Oct. 7.

Hosted by Saehaksangdeul, the
committee for realizing new SA, there was a discussion about the SA. According
to a survey of 741 Yonseians from Sept. 21 to Oct. 5, about 35% students replied
they had not heard about Joongunwi (the Central Executive Committee of the SA),
and 34% not participated in the meeting even though they knew. As a result, it
turned out that the SA does not fully reflect the students' opinion well.
Through the discussion, participants came to the conclusion
that the basic problem is due to the integration system, since the solidarity
between the students gets loose. They also said the SA needs to decentralize the
authority to various students.
However, ParkLee Jung-youp
(Sr., Dept. of Econ.), who led the discussion on the day, said, "Not only the
structural problem but also the way to draw the interest of the students is the
matter." Saehaksangdeul held another discussion on Oct. 27, to encourage more
participation of the students in reforming the SA. Besides, several students in
Saehaksangdeul have constituted a formal organization, "SA renewal F5", to seek
for the alternatives. They are planning an election campaign on the upcoming SA
