Located right at the center of the Inha campus, the small pond has legend that says "In," a wise and brave young boy who fought against an Immogi, a monster serpent of Younghyunbeol which was about to ascend to heaven with two youiju, cintamani after completing a thousand years on the earth and “Kyung,” a clever little girl who maneuvered the Immogi into reflecting itself on the lake, beat off the evil spirit after many hardships, and finally went up to sky in the form of dragons with a youiju in their mouths. Briming with big trees, it is one of the most popular on-campus places. In spring, many people enjoy themselves with cherry-blossoms.
A slingshot-shaped tree, positioned at a lawn in front of the headquarters, is being called a matching tree by Inha students. They say when a couple fits in the tree seat, they would get married. It is only a superstition? Who knows? It is very popular for many couples.
It is an echo stone placed behind the Biryong tower, a symbol of the university. When a person speaks standing on the stone, the voice would echo around. But, an interesting thing is that the echo wasn't taken into account when designed.
The abundant plane-tree woods named after German philosopher, Heidegger, are located along the Woo-Nam road facing the buildings no. 6 and 9. The woods are especially popular in the summer and the fall when many students like to read under the trees.
Being displayed at the side of the headquarters, Woonam opened the history of Korean aviation as the first civilian aircraft. Compared to modern models, it is small. Yet it still takes its pride in dignity. It is the most favorite photo zone for graduating students.
The Benchmark is a standard point for measuring geographical features like heights. The indication stone is set up on the university grounds in a Chumsungdae-shaped cylindrical establishment made of red bricks. It is easy to pass by, but it becomes of great significance when you get to know it
