《Editor’s Note: The spread of COVID-19 has brought significant changes to college campuses worldwide, forcing virtually all universities in South Korea to switch to online education. UNIST has been conducting non-face-to-face lectures since the first semester of 2020. However, with the recent decline in cases, many expect that campus life will soon return to normal. In order to help new students adapt to university life, the UNIST News Center and the Student Affairs Team plan to produce more episodes of ‘Welcome, First-Time at UNIST?’ in series.》
The UNIST theater club, Never Ending Story (NEST) is filling the campus life with various activities. The club has been working steadily since the establishment of UNIST in 2009. Some alumni of NEST are active as producers of broadcasting stations. We introduce NSET, which colors science and engineering campuses, which can be hard.
