What can you find out when you look directly in front? Pedestrians who are engrossed in their walk or beautiful scenery along the roadside? Then, look up; gaze at the blue sky or the shimmering stars. With your head bowed, what can you discover?

Nowadays, the word "phubber" often first comes to your mind when saying "with your head bowed." At SCNU, however, it's another perspective to discover SCNU and SCNUers instead of being "phubbers" are explorers of the realm below. Let's delve into the world of SCNU below and SCNUers from this new perspective!
