Chingu+ Program

Chingu+ Program is a cultural experience program provided by Mason Korea University Life. The program encourages students to come together and participate in cultural experiences as small groups.

Participants will have opportunities to choose and join two free cultural excursions happening in Incheon, Seoul, and other cities. These experiences are offered by Budify and Mason Korea University Life will provide support by covering the program fee for participants. University Life will also organize a community-wide event for all participants during the program period.

Participants who are actively involved in the program will be awarded a certificate from the Associate Dean of University Life.
