Written on December 21, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic, Social

 On 29th of September 2016, IE Korea Club organized a Korean dinner party at a decent Korean restaurant near Sol & Opera Metro stations. The club invited all IE members who love or never had Korean food before, and more than 60 IE students attended the party.

The menu proposed to the guests was authentic Korean cuisine, through diverse dishes prepared following the traditional recipes. The event started with Kimchijeon (Kimchi pancake), Japchae (stir-fried starch noodles with beef and vegetables) and more than 10 kinds of Banchans(side dishes) as starters.

The main course consisted of the most loved Korean dish around the world, Bulgogi (BBQ Beef) and Jeyuk Bokkeum (spicy pork BBQ) and Bibimbap (rice topped with prepared vegetables, beef and seasoned red chili pepper paste, Gochujang).

During the dinner, clubs members walked around the hall and explained about food, wearing Hanbok, traditional Korean dress. The club also played K-Pop music video on the screen though the event to give guests a sense of current Korean culture.

At the end of dinner party, all guests were invited to join lucky draw and quiz about interesting facts of Korean culture. Most of them won Korean cosmetics and liquors as a gift. They appreciated the dishes and the enjoyable atmosphere that contributed to create an opportunity for networking and understanding Korean culture more.

IE Chinese Gathering Dinner – Reunion

Written on December 21, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

On the 3rd December, IE China Club organized Chinese Alumni Dinner at SELFIE Restaurant in Madrid. Current students and some recently graduated students who work in Madrid got together and shared their experiences. China Club worked as a bridge which connected new students and alumni from different programs of IE University.

This event aimed to build and strengthen professional and personal network among IE Chinese students. The newly on board IE China Club President Un I Wong and Vice-president Sirui Huang emphasized the purpose of this event and presented several upcoming events of next year. The participants really appreciated this precious opportunity to share their study and work experiences, meet old people and make new friends especially at a lovely IE atmosphere in the restaurant.

We finished the night with a picture of all the participants holding a big IE flag. Indeed, we were overjoyed and content that the students who attended this event had a great time. Hopefully this dinner will remain as an excellent memory in the participants and also a wonderful memory with IE Campus Life.

Global Village 2016, Korea Club

Written on December 21, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

It was a really big decision that Korea Club, one of the minority clubs with a few members, decided to join as a partner in the global village event. However, since it was a meaningful charity event, we wanted to participate. Of course, we didn’t want to miss an opportunity to exchange was not easy for clubs from various countries to miss a chance to be part of the cultural exchange with other clubs of other countries.

In addition to the Hanbok, Korean traditional dress, we prepared modernized version of Hanbok, which can be worn in real life so that the students can experience it. The colorful and harmonious design of Hanbok and the harmony of beautiful colors made a deep impression on the students about Korean culture. (However, the crowds and hot weather were another problems) Also, students who participated in the contest were given a lottery to give a gift of Nanta performance tickets and traditional Korean liquor, which enabled the student to appreciate other aspects of Korean culture.

Korean-style chicken barbecue, which is a good match with beer, rice cake Gangjeong, which was a pastry dish, rice cake to blow away heat, assorted meals that can not be missed during Korean holidays, sweet bread with sweet honey, which is a sweet finger food.
The time and money spent on deciding the menu, making it, buying food ingredients and carrying the food were only for one day of June 9th. Delicious foods we put our heart into caught many people’s attention and they enjoyed their palates happily. (It is a bonus to realize that I will never choose my career in the restaurant business!)

We finished it all well, but it was an unreasonable schedule. (I will not recommend joining the GV unless the club has than 10 members.) Korea club wanted to participate in stage events, so we had thought of several methods and found that the alcohol show was the only one we could go without leaving the booth entirely (ethic code violation! This show was not allowed by the organizer.) I wish the glorious prosperity of Korea club in 2017.

15 de Septiembre – Grito de Independencia

Written on December 21, 2016 by Campus Life in Geographic

Last 15th of September, IE Mexico Club invited more than 400 students representing IE international diversity, to celebrate celebrated Mexico’s Independence Day amid Mexican music, customs and wrestling masks. A great opportunity to celebrate in the heart of Madrid this traditional Mexican party along with friends, with enough Mexican food, candies, and beverages to keep the party going until the actual “Cry of Dolores”, event displayed in the monitors of the place and shouted by all.

This day, Mexicans commemorate the event, occurred near Guanajuato, that established the first milestone in the Independence war. Every 15 of September, the president of Mexico rings the bell that originally tolled back in 1810 at the main balcony of the National Palace in front of thousands of Mexicans, followed by a shout of patriotism naming important national heroes finishing with the iconic shout of “¡Viva Mexico!”. Cry of Dolores is usually known as “the Shout of Independence”, and is the most important national day.
