Introduction

Korea University Sejong Students' Groups take pride in their 35 years of history.

The groups and their association, existent since the foundation of Korea University Sejong Campus, have also fulfilled the roles of the Students Council which was not present at that time. The groups are as old as this and have worked as the center of struggle and culture on Sejong Campus.

Such a community culture resulted in the 1989 Seoul Anam Campus Struggle, which was the background of establishment of the current Center for Academic Information (Library), College of Science and Technology (previously, College of Natural Sciences) and Hall of Freedom (previously, Dormitory).
The university culture was the culture of small groups and communities. It developed from the hobby-based circle culture in the 1970s and the liberal arts and human relationships in the 1980s. By now, it is practice-oriented inviting concerned and mature social members to change the contradictions of our society.

In the 1970s and after the 1980s, groups of social services and philosophies and ideologies prospered, respectively. As the history shows, students' groups are very sensitive to circumstances of each time period. This is manifested in that students' groups have always responded in students' movement and democratization movement most effectively. As such, the groups have passionately and courageously responded to socio-structural contradictions. They did not neglect. They have never been bystanders. Such a tradition has established Sejong as the place for spirit of independence. The motto is "Independence" and the affiliated groups are also called ‘The Students' Groups Association of Independence’.
