Celebrated performances — such as a vocal ensemble, piano and strings concerto, vocal solo, chorus, and other such musical numbers — followed the ceremony. Performances were given by undergraduate or graduate students, in conjunction with faculty from the arts department. The performances were composed in such a way that all KMU members could enjoy them, deviating from the events’ existing way.


 The celebratory meal was followed by a congratulatory reception and the presentationof achievement awards for a number of fields to commemorate the school’s anniversary. Awards included the long-service achievement award, professor achievement award, personnel achievement award, and Industry-Academic Cooperation achievement award. A total of 64 professors and school personnel received awards. 


 In this celebration, the President Hong-Jae Yim said “KMU is celebrating its 73rd anniversary. Seventy-three years have already passed since Haegong Ik-Hee Shin founded our small school from wood in Changseongdong,from which it has blossomed into the bright school we know in Jeongneung-dong. While previous celebrations have proceeded in formal fashion, we have prepared a hearty celebration to commemorate the historic day on this occasion. I hope you all enjoy the festivities and join in celebrating our school’s 73rd anniversary.”
