Yonsei School Festival (대동제)
There is a school festival every May.
Global Sports Day
Yon-Ko Jeon (연고전)
The Yonsei-Korea rivalry is the college rivalry between two universities.
A large number of current students and alumni from both universities attend this event to support their respective sides. The event is notable for the coordinated crowd cheers which fill the stadium throughout the entire duration of the game.
A long-running gag between the two universities is the order of the two universities when referring to the rivalry. Yonsei University refers to it as the "Yon-Ko Jeon" rivalry, whereas Korea University refers to it as the "Ko-Yon Jeon" rivalry.
