Duksung International Buddies
Each international student studying in Duksung Women's University will have at least one designated Duksung Buddy. Duksung Buddies will introduce you to campus life and help you adjust to the Korean culture and language. Most of all, they are friends with opened minds who are willing to learn your culture and share their experience with you. They will coordinate many activities throughout the city and Korea to make your life at Duksung better.

International Festival
Every May when the cherry blossoms bloom around all over the Duksung campus, DWU holds a yearly school festival, 'Dae Dong Jae,' for all students.

You will set up a booth with other international students and can promote your culture with traditional clothes, foods, and other activities. During that time not only will you introduce your culture to the Duksung Campus, but also your Duksung Buddies and other Korean students will help you experience the Korean culture by cooking Korean food together and trying folk activities.
