Upholding the 500-year tradition of Jesuit universities around the world, Sogang strives for high quality education which brings about a reverence for God, true understanding of life and the pursuit of the truth. Sogang is the hall of humanitarianism(hong-ik-in-gan) where the intellect, humanism, and spirituality deeply take root and form a virtuous cycle, and the best talents are cultivated, pleasing to the eyes of God.
