34725-1

PUP Sta. Mesa campus students once again had a full-day of Korean activities as KCC visited PUP Sta.Mesa (M.H Del Pilar) for another Korean Culture Caravan last November 25.

This is the third time for KCC to hold the Korean Culture Caravan in the university. In 2014 the first Korean Culture Caravan was held by the invitation of Department of English, Foreign Languages and Linguistics. Also last November 2015, the culture caravan was held in the same campus by the invitation of PUP College of Tourism and Hospitality Management.

This year the free admission event was composed of three parts: K-Cooking Contest, K-Film Screening and the K-pop Dance Contest which were held at  the Cafe Hasmin and Manila Room of  PUP M.H. Del Pilar Campus.
