Last Friday, the State University of New York, Korea (Stony Brook University and Fashion Institute of Technology) held its 2023 Fall Convocation Ceremony in Songdo, Incheon.
A total of 231 new students took part in this ceremony. Welcoming remarks and congratulatory speeches were given by SUNY Korea President Arthur H. Lee, Executive Director of SUNY Korea Dr. Imin Kao, and FIT Professor and Chair of Fashion Business Management Vincent Quan. The Convocation Ceremony also included an Oath presented by two selected freshmen students, the awarding of scholarships, and the badge ceremony.
President Lee welcomed students from 18 countries, including 3 new countries for SUNY Korea – Mauritius, Morocco, and Peru – and added: “Dream big enough to change the world and don’t be afraid of failure.” In addition, Professor Quan reminded the new students that FIT ranked first globally in 2023 amongst fashion schools, and encouraged students who entered this world-renowned program to be proud of themselves. In particular, he advised students to find a balance in their lives, saying, “During your college life it is important to focus on your studies; however, the most important thing is health, and as important as acquiring knowledge are various extra curricula activities to develop your capabilities.”
The new students from the 6 majors at Stony Brook – Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Business Management, Computer Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Technology & Society – and the 2 majors at FIT – Fashion Design and Fashion Business Management – will begin their first classes as university students on Monday, August 28, 2023.
