The Library

“Libraries are humanities’ link to both the past and the future. In the present, they are vital to maintaining and nurturing the yearning for knowledge in the hearts and minds of patrons. And let’s not forget the pleasure and delight of quiet, cozy browsing and choosing that exact book one cannot live without.”          – Anonymous

The Campus – My Sanctuary

Life of a research student can be very stressful sometimes. Everyone has a different way of coping with stress; I for one have found some very delightful and solitary places on the campus itself.

My Sanctuary after a long hard day – the old tree near the hostel

I found this solitary tree with a bench; a quiet place to reflect on your life. After a long and hard and sometimes unsuccessful day at work/lab I often spend my time here on cool summer evenings.

My Sanctuary after a long hard day – for some time alone

This Chinese style shelter is a good place to spend time after work. One may sit with friends over a nice cup of coffee or just a read a book when alone. There are many such places on the campus and everyone can choose their own spot.

The Campus

The Kuang-Fu campus is a beautiful lush green campus spread over a large area. There are a number of lakes spread around the campus with small gardens between the concrete offices and academic buildings. The Bamboo lake is the largest lake in NCTU, near the Temple gate; it attracts for everyone with its serenity an beauty. Small trails and pavements, shadowed by greens, lead to places inside the campus. The campus with its serene setting, beauty and quiet is a perfect sanctuary for academicians.
