English: Hongik University 
Hangul: 홍익대학교
Hanja: 弘益大學校

 Hongik University was established in 1956 based on humanitarian ideals (in Korea, the word “Hongik” means to advance the welfare of mankind). In 1948, the school’s original name “Hongmun” was changed into “Hongik”, and one year later it officially established 4-year courses with the colleges of law and liberal arts. The school merged with Sudo Engineering College in 1971 and became a university. Now there are 9 colleges with 11 divisions and 29 departments and 11 graduate schools and research institutes.

English: Yonsei University 
Hangul: 연세대학교
Hanja: 延世大學校
Motto: The truth will set you free.

Formally established in 1957 is one of the oldest universities in South Korea. And is now one of the top 3 most prestigious universities in South Korea. (As of 2013, Yonsei is been listed at rank# 16 in the Top Asia's University Ranking) Being founded on Christian principles, here you could also witness that the Christian character of the university is well illustrated by its history as school originally founded by American Protestant missionaries. Even their school's motto "The truth will set you free" originated from the Bible. With over 100 clubs and student bodies on campus, students are obviously spoilt for choices.
