There are some fine buildings on the campus, but it's unfortunate that so many of the gardens have been destroyed and concreted over for car parking.

Lovely campus that's close to restaurants. Take a walk through and around the campus - some buildings are over 100 years which you don't see so much in China.

It's a nice stroll around near Green Lake Park. Unless you have extra time I would go. If you are tight on time, you can skip. The grounds are park like setting and is very nice.

If you have more time than you know what to do with and have never seen a university campus before, then this is a nice one. A friend told me I must see this "gorgeous historic campus". Ummm... all I know is that's two hours of my life I will never get back.
