Daegu University was founded over a half century ago with a spirit of good will and charity toward those isolated from society. This same spirit still radiates through the campus today, fostering a love-thy-neighbor environment that encourages student growth through the practical experiences gained by living in a shared community. Today Daegu University continues to produce capable young men and women with a keen sense of social responsibility and insightful vision toward the future.
Daegu University is rightfully proud of its expansive and beautiful 1,000-acre campus and 500-acre Muncheonji Lake and is now recognized as a university with ideals and dreams that surpass even its stunning physical beauty. Furthermore, Daegu University has a reputation for providing a substantial academic environment that makes possible the realization of students' ideals and dreams.
