It is a great pleasure and an honor for me to be the first Senegalese to attend Sookmyung Women’s University, Korea.  I have been very satisfied with the administration and the teaching staff.  Sookmyung is a high-ranking university and it really fits its motto: “A Gentle Power to Change the World.” I believe that it will achieve its goals in as much as it provides the students with an appropriate intellectual and culturally varied environment, which is both significant and relevant to their training.
The living conditions are favorable and the students have access to a range of varied and rich courses in addition to an excellent library, which testifies to the invaluable qualities of the professors and to the good level of the students.  I have been much impressed in seeing an only women’s university devoid of discriminatory ideas toward men all the more because they open-mindedly admit male international students to attend the university, which is not obvious if the principles of gender-based education had to be respected.
Since November 23, 2009, Université Gaston Berger de Saint-Louis, Senegal, my home institution, has signed a university cooperation agreement allowing exchange programs with Sookmyung Women's University, and I have the honor and privilege to be the first beneficiary of the program.  I would like, at the outcome, to share this success and experience paralleled with happiness not only with the people at my home university, but also with all the Senegalese.
I should like to express my deep sense of gratitude to President Dr. Young Sil Han, the professors, and the administration, mainly the Office of International Affairs, who facilitated the trip and offered me a standard life with the faculty and on campus.  I thank them for their sense of hospitality, which helped me easily integrate into Korean culture, learn it and love it, because modernity proves that the world is culturally bound.  I should not also fail to mention my advisor, Dr.  Sang Yule Kim (Dean of External Relations, Sookmyung), who allowed me to use his office for more comfort in my research and to have free access to his library.  Find here all my appreciations of Sookmyung Women’s Universty and I highly recommend it to international students.  “Kam shaamnida!”
Sincerely, Alassane Abdoulaye DIA
