School sister, Guo, Ya-Ling urged the students to frequently participate in activities and attend the class in your classroom to avoid the uncomfortable dependent feeling when making up for the missing class with other classes.

Students of Fudan class attended a campus tour, making a departure from College of Management, bypassing the palm avenue, school entrance, Fu Bell and to NTU Museums.

Followed by listening to teachers’ encouragement and school brothers and sisters’ experience sharing from both sides, NTU-Fudan classmates was led by the University tour guide for a campus tour to get to know NTU well. Standing at the palm avenue of NTU, a symbol of endless of life and growth at the sight aligning with the magnificent and straight avenue facing the library, Thumb Mountain is in your view by looking into the distance, lining up with the axis to the East and conveys the expectation to NTU students’ outstanding performance.  Furthermore, Fu Bell with 21 rings each time reminds of the thinking attitude, asserted by President Si-Nien Fu: “There’re only 21 hours a day, for the rest 3 hours are for meditation.” 
NTU-Fudan classmates were surprised at the delicate fortress pattern of NTU school entrance rather than a grand one. The predecessor of NTU is Japanese Imperial University whose school entrance was purposely constructed lower and narrower, aiming to inspire the students to humbly face the sea of learning and pursue the distinguished knowledge.      

In the spring drizzle, the students’ interest toward the building and history of NTU was not ceased at all by raising questions and taking pictures. The completion of NTU campus tour drew the opening ceremony to an end and raised the curtain on NTU EMBA life.
