  • It is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in Taiwan. Affiliated with the Presbyterian Church, the original building of the school was funded mainly by donors of the County of Oxford from Ontario, Canada, and the school English name was given in his honor, while its modern name from the Aletheia University is a reference to the Greek word "truth", itself a reference to a religious school connection.

  • 原先睇完紅毛城,就會直接行去小白宮。但有職員建議我們參觀埋真理大學一帶建築群,這是免費的點,不用買票。果然無介紹錯,一開始就見到禮拜堂同牛津學堂,之後仲有姑娘樓,馬偕紀念館等等。都係非常有特色,同時亦會介紹有關馬偕傳教士的在台灣的事蹟,上了寶貴的一課。
