Its alumni include the former Premier Zhou Enlai and Nobel laureates Chen Ning Yang and Tsung-Dao Lee.History1919-1937The university was founded as a private institution in 1919. 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.

  • 从新华路南京路沿着成都道向北跑到南开大学,造访恩来先生塑像。成都道很漂亮,据说以前是天津的达官贵人居住的地方,周围都是小洋房,和上海的巨鹿路很像,只是更长更多更漂亮!来回8.5公里,一个多小时跑完 
  • 不愧是中国的名校,文化气息很浓厚,学校建筑业很有特色,而且紧挨着天津大学,为国家培养很多很优秀的人才,食堂的小菜也很好吃! 
  • But I think many people usually enter from the East Gate. Main entrance is facing the road on the South side. Enter the gate and statue of Zhou Enlai, huge. And student relationship building and walk to the Northeast direction from there, along the way include University merchandise shop. Price remains the same with Japan. To walk, look at the campus map is too wide. It is a sense of the University on the outskirts of Japan in Tokyo.

  • 做好地說,旅遊景點,我不知道,但 - 我很喜歡。這是非常好的一變了街道堆滿了城市的喧囂和塵土。樹木是最好的休息就是在池塘邊的長椅上許多寧靜的校園。我走進了一個名為第二餐廳的地方,但有特點,從一樓到三樓每層菜單 - 有氣氛。三樓是好的中國餐館的感覺,而不是一個學生食堂。一樓是很多樣的菜單的 - 在蚊子也校外聚會,但有沒有便宜好吃的預付飯票系統 - 或者你可以買去不知道。羅克在步行約5分鐘地鐵站 - 化也是一個好去處。隔壁是天津大學。
  • 南开大学好像一直维持在当年的情况,有一种穿越到民国的感觉,建筑也没见修缮。和邻居天大相比,南开有一种原味,扑面而来。
