November 24, 2013 According to the 2013 SNU health examination of 5239 undergraduate and graduate students, 96.2% of SNU students reported a lack of vitamin D due to not spending enough time outdoors.

Vitamin D is created when exposed to ultraviolet rays from the sun, and people who stay indoors for the most part can have trouble creating it. Forty-five percent of SNU students replied that they spend less than 30 minutes outdoors every day and the SNU Health Service Center believes this to be the direct reason for such sad results. more

SNU will be the third university in Korea to introduce flipped learning after KAIST and UNIST. more
