This was followed by a speech from LIM Da Jeong (APS1, Korea), who spoke on behalf of the new AP House boarders, describing her hopes for life in the dormitory, "Through the experiences at APU, I want to deepen the links between knowledge and the world. Let's enjoy life at AP House and utilize life here as much as we can so that we can have a better future".
