There's an opening in everything; that's how the light gets in. As the new semester starts, the campus is lit up with youthful vigor again. Let's take a one-day tour to see beautiful sights illuminated by light at SCNU.

Daylight in the morning

Every day, the first light of day falls on the buildings and wakes up thousands of students and teachers. The light uses its ways to greet diligent people.


The sunlight colors the statue of Kang Youwei, a prominent political thinker and reformer of the late Qing dynasty, on the Nanhai campus.

Every morning, many students on the University Town campus choose to ride shared bikes from the dormitory area to the teaching building to save time.
