The DCL Workshop, named after liberal arts education, advocated by President Fujia Yang, aims to enrich students‘ extracurricular experience through a series of interesting activities. It helps students expand the scope of knowledge, improve self-cultivation, and achieve holistic development.
International Education Week (IEW) is one of the foremost events taking place at UNNC: it aims to improve the moral and intellectual qualities of students at UNNC, enhance arts on campus, improve the University’s reputation through community outreach, promote the University through media publicity, and show the University at its best to prospective parents and students.
Following the success of previous RUOK Week, 5-HT Week aims to provide students and staff with an environment where they can relax, have fun and feel a sense of belonging during the peak pre-exam period, and where they can participate in a wide range of enjoyable activities. In this year’s 5-HT, we have looked for inspiring ideas and will share them through various channels. Fun and engaging elements such as exhibitions, animals, music and discounts will be retained, featuring warmth and friendship to help everyone feel warm and more engaged with their community.
"5-HT" is short for 5-hydroxytryptamine, also known as the happy messenger, which is a monoamine neurotransmitter to help our brain modulate mood, cognition and etc. There is another meaning of "5-HT" that has been interpreted and applied by our team: "5" means "Give me 5", "H" represents "Happiness", and "T" means "Thanks". For this year’s 5-HT Week, we use "temperature" to be the main topic and create 5 themes, which are "18°C Breathing on the Lawn", "25°C Your Comfort Zone", "36°C Warmth into Heart", "52°C Best Regards to Overseas Friends", and "100°C Booming Week of Welfare". We hope that this 5-HT week will help you get rid of anxieties and pressures and provide you with opportunities to take a rest before the final exams!
In order to create an inspiring environment to promote international students’ engagement in UNNC, a joint project by several departments coined Living in China is proposed by Department of Campus Life since 2019. This project is targeted at international students to provide opportunities to get to know the Chinese culture and to offer a co-curricular programme to enhance the journey at UNNC.
UNNC has various organisations and societies, including 17 service-oriented student organisations, many student innovation teams, and more than 60 societies in four major categories: academic, practical, liberal arts and sports. These student organisations and societies are committed to conducting a variety of extra-curricular activities, strengthening communication between our university and local communities, sharing global education experience and achievements, promoting integration of domestic and international students, and enhancing connection between teachers and students.
