Service Education
The new revised service education is to significantly reduce the hours of work on campus cleaning and promote a clean environment, boost diverse learning, boost student’s awareness of themselves and the community, society and the environment around them, encourage the virtues of punctuality, hard work, team work and cooperation as well as encouraging them to be active in public service. This is a oneyear, zero credit compulsory course which students are required to take in order to meet graduation requirements. As of 2010 and after those who are unable to finish their service education course in their freshman year are required to complete 78 hours of service in order to meet graduation requirements. The compulsory services students are required to perform include assisting with the maintenance of school buildings and the campus environment; participate in volunteer services, garbage collection and recycling and any other services on campus.
 
Service Learning
The service learning course focuses mainly on the “learning” aspect of the course by planning activities and structured reflecting on the services being provided to the by the service provider to the end user and promoting services’ development.
The program provides students with the opportunity to gain practical experience (understanding and assessment, design and implementation of service programs), apply their knowledge to real situations, meet the needs of the community and integrate their knowledge and skills. This helps strengthen the university’s relationship with the community allowing them to share resources and promote the self-growth of our students.
 
 
Rite of Passage Ceremony
The university organizes a Rite of Passage Ceremony annually for freshmen as a celebration of this transition into adulthood. The ceremony not only includes ancient rites, with certain additions and changes in order to be more in tune with modern society, but there is also a course teaching how to proceed in the ceremony. The ceremony is held in the square and chaired by the president of the university and distinguished guests. Students, teachers, family and friends and local community are also invited to attend. The modern version of the ceremony has three new additional aspects to it, two coloured scarves and a small gift. The white scarf represents purity, innocence and breaking away from one’s childishness. Yellow is a Buddhist colour and the yellow scarf represents hope that the young adults may start with compassion and be dedicated to the state. Parents and teachers place the scarves over the students shoulders which represents placing upon the students the task and spirit of responsibility and service to the community. The small gifts are presented by the chairman of the board Master Hsing Yun as a blessing upon the students, blessing their futures with success and prosperity.
