Prof. Fon-Jou Hsieh, in 2007 in order to publish his book “Emails to NTU Students”, has personally done a series of quick sketches of the landscapes of NTU’s campus. This series vividly depicts the history and seasonal changes of NTU’s campus and has been widely praised for its and beauty and implications. Prof. Hsieh has selected 10 pieces from this series and coined to the title of “The Ten Landscapes of National Taiwan University”. Replicas were produced for wider promotion.
For 2013 Azalea Festival an exhibition of this” Ten landscapes of NTU” will be held at Xinsheng South Road’s Eslite book store, NTU Branch B1 near the NTU main campus for one month. It is a perfect match to display the beautiful NTU landscapes at the most representative bookstore in Taiwan.

Hi, NTU! –In retrospect of 10 years of the Cultural Asset Interpretation Course 3/25-5/3 10:00-17:00 National Taiwan University Library Multifunctional Exhibition Hall NTU Heritage Interpretation NTU Library
Activity Introduction:
It will soon be the 10 year mark of the commencement of the academic year that students and teachers have joined forces to produce interpretations of the campus cultural asset courses (NTU Heritage Interpretation).
In ten years, the students taking the courses, their professors, and teaching assistants have all formed the core of exploring the school’s history, space, natural ecology, and have excavated a good deal of undiscovered cultural assets. How much does the stupid bird who always visits campus understand? What unknown stories have happened on the historic campus of CASS?
This summer, “Hi, NTU!—In Retrospect of 10 years of the Cultural Asset Interpretation Course” invites all those at NTU to share with us the experience of mining the past.
