It is the heart of Korea’s culture and education as well as politics and economics. Seoul is home to many old historic sites like Gyeongbokgung and Changdeokgung Palaces, and places of traditional culture like Bukchon Hanok Village, Insa-dong, and Namdaemun Market. The shopping and entertainment districts of Myeongdong and Apgujeong, Asia's largest underground shopping center COEX Mall and the Hangang River, which runs through the center of the city, also adds to the distinctive landscape of Seoul.

What’s KUBA?
KUBA stands for Korea University Buddy Assistants and each students will have a group of KUBA members when they arrive in Korea.
During each vacation period, the Office of International Affairs recruits KU student volunteers (mostly second year students or higher) for KUBA to guide and help Study Abroad and Exchange students adjust to Korea University life. Buddies are selected on the basis of their language abilities, student involvement (including participation in societies and clubs at KU), and in-person interviews.
Exchange/Visiting students will be automatically registered as KUBA members and will receive e-mails from Korea University buddies before the semester starts.
