Nankai's scale was relatively small at its inception partly because it received no funding from the government but instead was funded by foreign charitable funds and local entrepreneurs, with only 3 departments (liberal arts, science, and business) and 96 students. It was noted particularly for its courses which were taught in English using foreign curricula and textbooks. By 1937, Nankai had expanded into a university of 3 colleges, 13 departments, and 2 research institutes, boasting 429 students and 110 faculty and staff members. It was compared to be "The North Star of Higher Learning". In accordance with its motto of "Dedication to the public interests, acquisition of all-round capability and aspiration for progress with each passing day", the University has produced batches of prominent talents such as Premier Zhou Enlai, Dr. Shiing-Shen Chern, Dr. Ta-You Wu and Mr. Cao Yu. The well-known Nankai Institute of Economics was established in 1927 and soon became one of the most prominent in China being the first non-foreign entity to calculate a Chinese Consumer Price Index.

  • 诚然现在很多学院搬到了郊外的新校区,但是还是觉得本部最有南开百年历史沉淀下来的味道,每个建筑各具特色,每个建筑都能说出一段故事,相比现在城市里随处可见的工业化建筑好太多。安安静静的走在树荫下的大中路上觉得自己又回到了六年前没心没肺的样子。校园里那份宁静,那种让人心安的力量,只有走上社会之后才后知后觉。当然了,我大商学院还是那么威武霸气!!来自2010级商学院本科生。  more »
  • 学校面积不大,很适合读书,跟天大连在一起,学校里好多情侣,感慨下年轻真好啊~游客不算多,最近的地铁是吴家窑地铁站。  more »
  • On the sprawling campus pond, a cafeteria, and student housing. This is the campus life of different universities in Japan, probably because of the housing. Café, suitable also for resting.
