About Zhixin College
Zhixin College was founded in July 2017. The name of our college, Zhixin, comes from a sentence --“If you renew yourself for one day, you can renew yourself daily, and continue to do so.” The sentence comes from an ancient piece of Chinese literature, called “Daxue,” “The Great Learning” in English. Therefore, Zhixin means our students can learn things every day and renew themselves daily which are the foundation of academic research and the need for national development.
Zhixin College committed to nurturing international talents who love our country, love our city —Shenzhen. They also love China’s intangible cultural heritage, are cultured, gentle, practical, innovative, and filled with great sense of social responsibility.

Theme color of Zhixin College is orange. Orange represents happy and lively which symbolize young and vigorous ZHIXINer. Meanwhile, Orange always associate with autumn and harvest which symbolize plentiful and happy.
The Bougainvillea is the inspiration behind the logo of Zhixin college, and it is the Shenzhen City flower. It shows that our college is based in Shenzhen, facing the world.
