Teaching in Korea: What to expect from the EPIK Orientation Dorm Room

During the spring 2011 EPIK orientation we were taken from Gimhae Airport to Pukyoung National University (PKNU) by bus. We were allowed to pick our own roommates so luckily I had befriended a really lovely American girl (also named Megan). 

The dorms at our orientation were really great! We each got our own beds and desks and EPIK gifted us a few things to make our stay more comfortable.

The view from our dorm room was incredible! We got a direct view of Busan’s famous Diamond Bridge. I couldn’t have asked for a better room or a better roommate.

  1. Helps to see your surrounding, looks beautiful and roommate is very cute, I feel better about you being there, love you much – Nana

  2. Stunning views, Meagan! Room is small but adequate… one question… Isn’t it hard on the sink for people to climb up and shower off?! 🙂 We will assume the purpose is to wash your hair and sponge bath – ?

    What a great adventure, Meagan.

    • Meagan, I think your orientation digs are awesome, and I love the views, especially the bridge at night!! You have a very cute roommate, and she shares your name with an alternate spelling….hope you become great friends!
      Enjoy your orientation and then send us more pictures when you move into your apartment….

  3. – Those beds are super skinny – I’d have a hard time keeping my big butt on one of them.
    – I love how a roll of TP was in your gift bag.
    – Showering must be fun.
    – The view you have is AMAZING!!!!

    Will you be sharing your apartment?

  4. Nice shower, hahaha but the views amazing:) chierstin had her baby, she named him bryden James he weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces! How is it over their? Does their food suck?
