Four Treasures of the Study
The renowned “Brush, Ink Stick, Paper and Ink stone of NCU” are the sceneries at the entrance of NCU. The sceneries utilize the different heights of terrains and combine nearby buildings, embodying the imagery of the four treasures of the study. The green garden with the plants cut into the word shape of “NCU” is the ink stone. The Monument of the Reestablishment of NCU in Taiwan is the high-rising brush. The security room opposite to the monument resembles an ink stick, and the administration building with its outer wall designed as hollow squares is the Xuan paper with nine squares painted on it.
Lovers’ Path is the pine-tree path along the public road surrounding the campus and its length is about 2 km. Because its width allows only two people to walk side by side, NCU students gave it a nickname as “Lover’s Path.” When you walk on the path and listen to the breeze, you would find that whispers of the breeze blowing through pine trees are just like whispers of lovers. The pine fruits spread on the path are the beautiful souvenirs from our memory of youth. Singing in the morning or wandering in the moonlight on the path, we are always drenched in a romantic college atmosphere.
