Introduction
Ewha womans university was Korea’s first educational institute for women. It was founded in 1886 by Mary F. Scranton, an American missionary of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The school’s name “Ewha” was bestowed by Emperor Gojong (the 26th king of the Joseon Dynasty, 1863~1907). The three virtues Ewha promotes are truth, goodness, and beauty. In 1910, a 4-year college course was established, but in 1943, during the Japanese colonial rule, the school was deprived of its name “Ewha” and was downgraded to a 1-year course institute. In 1945, when Korea became liberated from Japan, the school took back its name and at this time, Ewha Womans University was officially established. As of now, the university has 15 graduate schools, 11 colleges with 67 departments, and several research institutes.

The recently completed ECC (Ewha Campus Complex; Basement level 6 – 1st Floor) is Korea’s largest underground campus. The lower levels contain a library, bookstore, gym, movie theater, cafes, and other cultural facilities, while on the first level visitors can find lecture rooms and an eco-park. The ECC provides students with various services, from learning to cultural activities, all under the one roof.

The Ewha Womans University area is one of the most popular shopping districts in Seoul. Clothing stores in the area sell affordable and stylish fashions for young people. Restaurants in the area cater to the tastes of young women, and many international dining chains have branches here. As well as the main street leading to the school, many of the alleyways are worth visiting. They are filled with accessory shops, small clothing boutiques, shoe shops, cafes, and hair salons.
