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.

  • 今年夏天帶去天津玩,鑒於南開大學的名氣,帶孩子體會一下名校的風采。由於道路不熟,打車來到南開東門。學校正放暑假,基本看不到學生,遊客也只有10多個人,以老人和帶孩子的居多。門口有校內通行的校車,需要購票乘坐,我們步行進去,校園內景色不錯,有幾個人工湖,在附近轉了轉,拍了些照片。校內還有紀念品商店,給孩子買了些紀念品。作為景點並不推薦去這裡,當然為了情懷另當別論! 
  • 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
