Thirty-five cadets from South Korea visited the Clayton W. Williams, Jr. Alumni Center on Feb. 18 as part of an international diversity program organized by Texas A&M’s Corps of Cadets.
The three-week program, which started Jan. 31, emphasized leadership, a core value for which Aggies are known. Chan Yong Kim, a cadet expecting to be commissioned into the South Korean Army, said that the leadership skills he learned at Texas A&M will help
him as an Army officer. The South Korean cadets also praised the university’s Spirit.
A&M Cadet Keltin Jordan ’14 said the cultural interaction the program offered to the A&M’s Corps of Cadets is impossible to replicate in the classroom.
At the Williams Alumni Center, the South Korean cadets learned about Aggie traditions and how to stay involved with the Aggie Network. They also learned a little American-style football during a game in Spence Park, and then enjoyed an evening of hot dogs and
Aggie baseball in Olsen Field.
