Student of the Month - Natalia Anna Michalak


             Natalia Anna Michalak is an exchange student from Warsaw University of Technology in Poland, where she majors in Management specializing in finance and enterprise risk management. Like many foreign students at KNU, Natalia came to Korea to learn Korean. Her university has exchange agreements with many universities throughout South Korea. However, Natalia explains that she chose KNU because she wanted a “true Korean experience”. “I chose KNU in Daegu, rather than Universities in Seoul because I think it is less international i.e. more Korean. Since I really wanted to learn Korean and make friendships with Koreans I decided to come to KNU.”


             Natalia is a lover of both music and sports. In primary and middle school she attended a music school where her principal instrument was the guitar. She took a different route in high school as she danced (primarily jazz) in a musical group, practiced acrobatics, and participated in her high school's basketball team. At KNU she makes the most of her passions, taking part in KNU's music club and going frequently to the KNU fitness center.


             Natalia's average day at KNU usually begins around 8 o'clock with breakfast at the dormitory cafeteria. Following that she attends class or goes to her job as an intern at a local Korean company, through the Global Internship Program operated by KNU. In the evening she usually has dinner and coffee with friends. After that she works out in the gym or practices with the music club. She occasionally goes to Urban Floor, a pub near KNU’s North Gate that is popular among both foreign and Koreans students alike.


             Natalia has really enjoyed her time at KNU. “It is an absolutely marvelous experience” she says, “I wish I could stay here for my Master’s degree. The study system is different here, and there are so many people from all over the world here as well. I am very glad I could meet so many nice people, [and] I will treasure all the precious memories that I have made at KNU. "
