The name of the 51st student council [Yiroom] signifies the spirit of "making our wishes come true" and encompasses our determination to fulfil the students’ demands in various aspects such as ‘culture, welfare, communication and convenience. Our logo has been inspired by a paper plane. It conveys an image of [Yiroom] striving to achieve our hopes like an ascending paper plane.
The KUBS student council has shed its 50 years of history and is now taking its first step towards a new chapter of 50 years. For that, [Yiroom] is prepared to go to its limit and beyond to ensure that all the students can feel the improvements made in our school. And like I have mentioned before in all of my twelve speeches, the student council is not a place to garner experience, but a position to prove one’s worth. [Yiroom], for the subsequent year, will strive to prove its worth and that the KUBS students were not wrong in their voting.
· Forming a culture
[Yiroom] will go further than merely providing a place for academic pursuits and create a place for enjoyable cultural experiences. We intend to provide cultural courses like "Barista course," "make-up course," "culture course." Next autumn, we will host "KUBS Moonlight Film Screening" to make an unforgettable night for friends, lovers and colleagues. Lastly, there will be sports competition that will range in a variety of events such as bowling and pooling to engage students who have not been able to participate in such events due to the lack of choices of sports.
· Forming a welfare
[Yiroom] will operate an "All day 24 hour" benefits to KUBS students which will be applicable outside the "normal school hour." We will install a system that will allow students to borrow items like mat, tongs, and wax. If there are any household items that students need, [Yiroom] will investigate the demand of the goods and opt for a group purchase. We aspire to become a council that considers even the small things in everyday life. Lastly, we will form partnerships with restaurants, karaoke and studios that will have benefits exclusive to KUBS students.
· Forming a communication platform
For an active and practical communication with our students the council will always bear in mind that the students are the main of the school. First, we will allow a more liberal operation of the KUBS affiliated volunteering club, “Atti” that will result in a system which will require communicating with the club members. We will move away from the traditional way of making the club follow the plans laid out by the student council. [Yiroom] will also change the system of students having to reveal their names when submitting proposals to a system where they can submit anonymously. In addition, the student council will provide feedbacks to all proposals submitted by the students. Lastly, we will hand out snacks that students truly want. We will run a survey on what students would like and show the kind of snack event the best college in the country would throw.
· Forming convenience
[Yiroom] has plans to launch KUBSTORY, an integrated business school mobile phone application, to improve the students’ college life. The application will include various functions such as a map of the business school, so that they can lay out the business school in the "palm of the hand." It will also have an online platform for classes/clubs so that students can check notifications relevant to them more effectively. The program will run an "army address book" so students can easily find the addresses of their friends in the armed forces and send them letters.
These are the four areas where we would like to keep good on our 12 pledges. Are you not excited for the future of KUBS?
We would be grateful for the students’ interest and support.
