My school, the Information and Communications University, had merged this month into a subdivision of another university, KAIST, as the IT Convergence Campus, or ICC for short. It just feels so unnatural that ICC is an abbreviation of a name that already includes an abbreviation. Obviously the powers that be have long forgotten that IT is an abbrevation for information technology ...

As part of the merger, there is a whole lot of paperwork that has to be submitted online, which sucks since it means having to use a bunch of ActiveX-ridden and security weakening websites, not to mention having to find a way to print out document formats that I normally have no way of reading. At least the original KAIST websites I needed to access didn't have as much problem in this regard.
