Last week for two days, I dropped in Korea University Anam Campus that is my alma mater. Korea University, established in 1905, is widely known as one of the oldest, largest and top-ranked universities in Korea. The campus is located in Anam-dong near the downtown Seoul, and is well arranged in a colorful and natural setting of old and new buildings harmonized with the surrounding environment. On entering the campus, I was impressed with its stately stone architecture, new intelligent buildings, sprawling lawns, seasonal trees and natural flora, and so on.
I sketched colorful sceneries here and there around the broad campus, enjoying beautiful fall leaves pleasantly. While sketching some familiar buildings existed from my college days, I was lost in old memories for some time.
