70 years ago on the 1st of October 1946 , KIM IL SUNG university was founded .This was the first people's university in Korea , a new type of university which would serve the interests of the working people and contribute greatly to the building of a new socialist state in Korea. It was. and is, totally different to the so-called "seats of higher learning "in the capitalist countries which only cater for the children of the bourgeoisie and the rich and privileged sections of society. Such capitalist universities only teach the most reactionary and backward anti-popular ideology and social science whereas KIM IL SUNG University teaches the advanced social science of Juche and Songun.Indeed KIM IL SUNG University is the palace of Juche-orientated social science and the acme of revolutionary education and learning in People's Korea.
KIM IL SUNG University is associated with the leadership feats of the great leader President KIM IL SUNG.He set up the university with the patriotic rice donation of the peasant Kim Je Won.KIM IL SUNG university was the first institution of higher learning in the new People's Korea which had previously not had any university or institute of higher learning.
The University is also closely associated with the revolutionary activities of the great leader comrade KIM JONG IL who studied at the university for 4 years.It was here that comrade KIM JONG IL made his pledge to glorify Korea .Standing on the Ryongnam Hill he said
"As I stand on Ryongnam Hill at sunrise,
The land of 3,000 ri greets my eyes.
Learning the leader's great idea,
I will be the master of the revolution in this land, Korea.
0 Korea, I will add glory to thee.
On the road of Juche I will be firm and steady
Under the guidance of the great leader.
Braving the raging waves and storms,
I will lead Korea into the future.
O Korea, I will make thee famous.
I will go on for ever with the cause of the sun
That shines over the whole world.
I will bring about the era of communism
When the red glow of Juche will cover the earth.
O Korea, my Korea!
Today KIM IL SUNG University is the premier university of the DPRK.
