Starting from this month, by the front gate at Roosevelt Road, a countdown clock is mounted on the wall and starts ticking away, so that visitors teachers and students all can sense that NTU is entering its 80th year.

This countdown clock is decorated with the anniversary logo. This pictograph, when taken apart, represents the three alphabets of "N", "T" and "U." And the surrounding design in the shape of a Chinese traditional lucky emblem bears the significance of wishing good luck to all NTU members, and success in their pursuits.

In addition, the countdown clocks has the function of an electronic bulletin, providing information on various activities, seminars, etc., to the visitors, thus allowing campus information exchange to become more efficient.
