Introduction

Lastest release date: Nov 01, 2016

Unique, preeminent and foresight are three basic concepts inherent in the foundation of National Chung Cheng University to pursuit for the highest standard of academic excellence in high education. For the last 27 years, from the beginning with only five graduate institutes, Chinese Literature, Applied Mathematics, Social Welfare, Computer Sciences and Information Engineering, and International Economics, and with less than 50 graduate students, University has experienced unprecedented growth and transformation, as it accelerates its ambition to be an energetic comprehensive research and teaching national university, offering 29 bachelor, 45 master, and 29 doctorate degree programs to more than 12,000 students, along with its offering cores: humanities, sciences, social sciences, engineering, management, law, and education.



Besides owning the most advanced hardware and software equipments, we are the first university in Taiwan through the collaboration with the renowned international academic institutions to offer the internet courses internationally. By means of promoting internationalization, and of being the first university in Taiwan to operate the regional campus in the Southern Taiwan Science Park to build up the co-op relationship with high-tech manufactures, CCU achieves the links between academic researches and industrial developments. In addition to the cultivation of high-tech talents, our university aggressively creates the learning environment of human art, and possesses 787,500 more books and as well varieties of literature exhibitions, concerts and performances. The first Campus Residency Project of internationally renowned Cloud Gate at our university represents our emphasis and efforts in cultural life. Moreover, we, cooperating with the local community, present the seasonal activities of “Pineapple cultural festival” held each May, and the annual "Zijing Film Festival" held in each March, becoming two of our unique campus events. By the virtue of sharing resources with the local community, University has forged the highlights of local industrial cultures and fully retained the university legacy-aggressive, creative, moral, humane. In pursuit of truth and discovery of new invention in academic research, Chung Cheng has cultivated the rich humane temperament to contribute itself to the country and the society.



The founding history of the university is, though, not long, Chung Cheng has staffs and degree programs of finest quality, well-planned campus, stylish architecture and campus sights, and also maintains the spirit of pursuing of eminence, aggressiveness, and creation. With these, Chung Cheng has already emerged in Taiwan as one of the renowned comprehensive research universities, where two former faculties had been appointed as the ministers of education in the past 22 years. To prospect the future, we will aggressively enhance much better teach and research environment, and as well facilitate a close attachment to the objectives of international research and student mobility to strengthen the international perspectives and competitiveness for students to make Chung Cheng internationally renowned.

Campus

The campus is located in the central part of Chia-yi county, 15 kilometers from the city of Chia-yi, which is approximately 250 kilometers south of Taipei. The campus occupies an open landscape of 132 hectares on a hill, with more than 200,000 trees of various species. On a campus tour, one cannot help but be struck by the elegant buildings of different architectural styles, surrounded by tall trees, open green spaces, and winding roads flanked with flowering trees and bushes which bloom in different seasons. The campus itself is a beautiful park with serenity and openness and is literally a breath of fresh air in comparison to Taiwan’s more urban campuses. Viewed from the plains below, the University looks like a splendid palace on a hill, but the ivory tower image is only physical, as the university serves the community in many ways.



The Administration Building in the center of campus is sinuous, Chinese style step-pyramid, acting as a grounding focal point for the activity happening around it. In front of it is a wide brick road leading to the main gate of the campus. The road is blocked to motorized traffic and is for walking and bicycling, a main route for students entering and leaving the campus. On the opposite side one finds another brick walkway bordered by trees and green spaces. This walkway leads to the impressive brick piazza situated in front of the campus's main Auditorium, and opens to a circular water feature, a common landmark and meeting place.



Facing the Auditorium is the Library and Information Building, an impressive, towering landmark of the University. It has more than 787,500 books, 7,200 periodicals and more than 545,600 microfilms, microfiches and CD-ROMs. Its Computer Center supports academic research, computer assisted instruction, on-line registration services, video-conferences, long distance learning, and other multimedia services. The library's audio-visual center boasts the most updated, high-tech AV equipment. In the main library, the sun-roofed inner court adds natural light to the reading areas. It is a great pleasure to study and research in this spacious and tranquil environment.



The Gymnasium is one of the most splendid and expensive constructions in southern Taiwan. It has two Olympic-sized swimming pools (one indoors and one outdoors), a roller-skating rink, bowling alleys, and indoor courts for basketball, volleyball, and badminton. In addition, it has rooms for Judo, weight-lifting and circuit training, indoor rock climbing walls, an outdoor Olympic track and field stadium, and of course, ping-pong facilities. Last, but not least, the sprawling campus even has a golf course with 20 fairways.



The Student Activity Center is situated by Tranquility Lake. The structure itself is very unique with different elevations in the interior. From these floors one can have a gorgeous view of the beautifully arched bridge crossing the Lake. The ground floor is spacious and bordered on one side by the Lake, on another by one of the various cafeterias in the center, and on another by a wide staircase. This area is often the stage for various student group performances and activities.



The Lake is a favorite spot for visitors and members of the University community. On a sunny day one will find families and children strolling along its stone walkways. Soon-to-be married couples, in full wedding attire, are often seen posing for their wedding portraits. Swans, ducks, quail, turtles, and fish of various species form their own community on the lake. They make this beautiful part of the campus an attractive family retreat for neighboring towns and counties, as well as a place for romantic walks on the path around the lake.



The buildings for the seven Colleges are interspersed in a park-like campus, each with its unique architectural style symbolic of its purpose and individuality. They all house various resting areas, student run cafes and small courtyards.
