However, from next year, I will add more vitality to our organization to facilitate exchanges and communication among our alumni journalists and thereby promote the further advancement of our alma mater.” HUFS President Park commented in his remarks, “Our alumni journalists have shined a light on our institution, providing information via various viewpoints through newspapers and broadcasting programs, communicating with the public, and as a result, helping our society mature. I hope all of you will continue to share your insight and wisdom on how to innovate and develop HUFS and put your hearts together for HUFS to move forward into the future.” President Yang of HUFS Alumni Association added, “I  ask all of you to pull together for HUFS as journalists and HUFS alumni. I also ask you to do your part as journalists to highlight the endeavors that HUFS is making amid today’s fierce competition in the academic community due to reasons like university rankings.” He then presented his donation to President Kim out of his good wishes for the development of HUFS Alumni Association.
