The Korean Students Association hosted Hangeul Proclamation Day on Oct. 11 at the Pavilion with games, traditional Korean snacks and t-shirt designing.

Hangeul is the name of the alphabet used in South Korea.

Hangeul Day was created in 1443 under the reign of King Sejong the Great during the Joseon Dynasty to promote literacy

"I came here and everyone’s smiling and having a good time," Maria Barajas, freshman, said.

Students were taught how to make origami such as paper cranes and other items.

"I didn’t know that this many people would come here so it feels very good," Jenny Jin, senior, said. "I hope that everyone who came here had a good experience with the Korean language."

Attendees also had the chance to write their name in Hangeul and color the South Korean flag, which is called the Taegeukgi.

Barajas said the Korean pop music that played provided an uplifting atmosphere.

The language is celebrated annually on Oct. 9 in South Korea.
