The 2018 Rolling Admission Fair was held at COEX from July 27th to 30th. Consultation was possible from 10 AM to 5 PM. This fair showed the largest attendance ever with 144 4-year-course universities having participated. CAU had quite a large booth and there were many students and parents who came to get information. Reaching its 100th anniversary next year, CAU has been increasing its reputation since its foundation was replaced by Doosan in 2008. On the spot, our school’s PR ambassador CAUnselors were working with admission officers. CAH interviewed a CAUnselor to find out more about them.
Interview with CAUnselor Kim Chan-woo
CAH: Introduce yourself!
Kim: Hello. I am Kim Chan-woo, 6th Ambassador of the Admission Department at CAU and SNS team leader. I am a freshman studying in the department of Asian Languages and Cultures
CAH: When I visited the fair, you were very busy working. What is the role of CAUnselor at the 2018 Rolling Admission Fair?
Kim: CAUnselor mainly did four things. First, we supplied information pamphlets; second, we guided the main booth; third, we gave advice to students and parents; lastly, we guided kiosks. We did these jobs by rotation. When doing one-on-one counseling, we tried to give information based on our experience since we actually took an entrance examination. So I think CAUnselor could give more useful tips to students.
CAH: The pre-scheduled system and text alerts for consultations were first introduced this year. How did these systems help to manage the fair?
Kim: Up until a year ago, we gave waiting number tickets to people who wanted to receive counseling. So people couldn’t predict their waiting hours. But by adopting these new systems, time efficiency increased and waiting lines were also shorter than at other booths. Many visitors were satisfied and we also received a lot of praises.
CAH: How did you feel after four days at the 2018 Rolling Admission Fair at COEX? What was the most difficult thing?
Kim: I felt that our school has a great value as many students wanted to attend and a large number of people visited the booth with great interest in CAU. And the most difficult thing was to keep standing with a smiling face because we were the face representing CAU. It was also hard to repeat the same thing and serve several unkind parents.
CAH: How did you prepare for the fair?
Kim: The most important thing we focused on was to give fair opportunities to everyone. Therefore, CAUnselor went to Busan, Daegu, Daejeon, Gumi, Gwangju, and so on. We visited metropolitan cities and provinces all over the country to give information as much as possible. < 저작권자 © 중앙헤럴드 무단전재 및 재배포금지 >
