South Korea is home to one of the College's largest international alumni populations. Nearly 2,000 Korean students have graduated from SVA. In an effort to support this growing group of alumni, SVA recently opened an office in the Hyewa-dong neighborhood in Seoul, known for its university art centers, schools, theaters and museums. The office hosts monthly alumni exhibitions, and is a place where alumni can gather to catch up and pursue their career goals.
