RC helps students’ overall growth by offering various educational programs to students after school.
Gachon RC has many global RC programs. They are also known as C.L.E.A.N Up programs. C.L.E.A.N is an abbreviation of ‘Community, Liberty, Education, Admiration and Novelty’. The aim for this program is to help purify the students’ mind and body. There are RC athletic competitions and R-cycle programs. The RC athletic competition is for all the students who live in the dormitory and it is scheduled for October.
