The Dankook History and Culture Center’s DKU History Museum (Director Gyeong-sik Park) planned the online VR exhibition for all Dankookites, including new students, to experience the essence of the university’s history and feel proud to be a part of global Dankook. The online VR exhibition is especially popular among freshmen who have been unable to tour the campus due to COVID-19 restrictions as it gives them a closer look at the university’s history.
