  • Peking University[note 1] (abbreviated PKU, colloquially known as Beida) is a major research university in Beijing, China, and a member of the elite C9 League of Chinese universities.[5] The first modern national university established in China, it was founded during the late Qing Dynasty in 1898 as the Imperial University of Peking and was the successor of the Guozijian, or Imperial College.[6] The university's English name retains the older transliteration of "Beijing" that has been superseded in most other contexts.[7]
  • My brother studies here ! Proud of his struggle to get admitted here for his medical studies, and to make his bright future. I pray all who study here come out with moss of bright and beautiful future with happiness ahead.
  • Very very pretty campus!!! Use to be part of Yuanmingyuan Palace. Espeically when Genko leaves turn Yellow is must seen.
  • Beautiful campus. Definitely a place you should visit if you’re a tourist here. And the people you’d meet here are fun to hang out with and super smart/passionate. If you’re lucky you also get to see tons of student groups doing activities outdoors.
