Shude College has the philosophy of Immortal Growth. The character “Shu” refers to the tree, and the growth of college students, all of them young and promising in their way. The character “De” comes from the ancient Chinese song “Three Immortals,” and refers to the ability to learn something new and forever improve. On this basis, Shude College students are virtuous students, with noble morality, broad minds, and tenacious characters.
Shude College aims to create a spiritual home that unites youth and wisdom while cultivating virtue and sentiment. They want to nourish life with science and technology, to promote the integration of our natural, social and spiritual attributes together organically and naturally.
The Dean often says, “Life is unpredictable, be prepared. Life is full of uncertainty; please be prepared. Life is a long journey, keep going. Life is a long journey; please stick to it and never give up. Life Is beautiful, enjoy it. Life is good; please enjoy the process.” It is this attitude that Shude College hopes to instill in its students.
