The geometry of gate is composed of a set of different radial orientations. Since this gate represents the campus complex of three colleges, it is expected to allude  harmony and integrity of the three colleges. Firmly supported from the ground and highly stretching towards the sky, the dynamic shape of the gate symbolizes their willingness to lead the newly coming era.

 

When appoaching to the front, one may look up the campus inside the arch which overlaps the peak of Mountain Umkwang with the University Church at the same time with welcoming everyone. Through this sequential event, the gate becomes a symbolized place for the territorial transition and the public entry of the campus.
