Pai Chai University is one of South Korea's oldest modern universities. Its campus is located in Seo-gu, in Daejeon metropolitan city, on the lower slopes of Yeonja Mountain.

Undergraduate programs are administered by the Colleges of Humanities, Foreign Studies, Business Administration, Social Sciences, Tourism Management, Natural Sciences, Engineering, Performing Inter-media Arts and Fine Arts. Numerous graduate programs in these fields are provided as well.

History[edit]

The school was founded by the missionary Henry Appenzeller in 1885, not long after the Joseon government had legalized Christianity and reformed the national educational system. At that time it was known as Baejae Hakdang (배재학당), which might be rendered as "Pai Chai Academy." It was officially established as a college in 1895.

Symbols[edit]

The tiger is an animal that appears many times in the legend and fables of Korea, and it has both intimacy and courage. Tiger, a symbol of disembowelment, symbolizes intimacy, ambition, and bravery based on the personality and scholarship of disloyal people.

Ginkgo has been widely distributed on the earth since 150 million years ago and is very strong in cold and wind. The ginkgo tree is a symbol of exuberant tradition and prosperity of the future.

Yulan is a flower that endures the cold of winter and blooms in early spring in the spring, and is loved by many people. Symbolizing the disloyalty, Yulan is a flower that indirectly submits the sublime spirit and purity of the evicted people.[1]
