Understanding 100 years of Chung-Ang through Quiz
From September 25th to 27th, a quiz contest was held on the first floor in Building 310. The quiz was about the history of Chung-Ang University. Next year is the 100th year of CAU, so this contest was a type of a centennial celebration. As 100 years is not a short period of time, many changes occurred at CAU over those years. An example of this, Centennial Memorial Hall was constructed recently. Also, some buildings have been newly constructed or remodeled. There was also a quiz about the old building at CAU. The quiz contest was a part of the Culture Festival, and people who guessed the correct answer got prizes. It was a great chance to look back on the history of CAU.< 저작권자 © 중앙헤럴드 무단전재 및 재배포금지 >
