If you would like to spend an interesting and very pleasant semester or more abroad, try spending a faculty exchange at Kyung Dong University. You would find yourself made very welcome indeed on the beautiful campus of Kyung Dong University.
Kyung Dong, founded in 1997, sits within a short walk of the East Sea, near the city of Sokcho (pop. 80,000) in Gangwo-do (province), northeastern Republic of Korea. The area is a seasonal domestic tourism destination with the most popular national park, Seoraksan, only ten minutes away. With the mountains, the sea, and a temperate four-season climate, it is a very pleasant place.
Of KDU's 3,000 students, 800 major in one of the three tourism specialities (hotel management; hospitality / food service; tourism interpretation). Next door to tourism is the sports marketing program, and I co-authored a peer-reviewed article with a faculty member there. In quick-quick Korean fashion, it took mere three months from first submission to the hard copy journal publication to arrive in my mailbox at CWU! Other KDU schools are management; security and police; computer and media engineering; education including secondary special education, and Korean language teaching; architectural civil engineering; and marine technology.
