Here are some photos from the University where I work. It is located deep in the Mountains of Taipei County.
Here is a photo of foggy and smoggy Taipei from the bus stop at 6:50am. Four days a week I take a one hour shuttle bus to and from work.
The University buildings
The University pagoda
The new University building that is being built facing the mountains.
The stunning Buddhist statue. This statue is placed at the entrance of the building’s interior. The University is Buddhist and has many alters and monks throughout campus. I have a high respect for the Buddhist religion and enjoy working in such a peaceful and spiritual environment.
The students! These photos were taken in my conversation class. Not all the photos turned out as I used my Sony Cybershot point-and-shoot instead of my professional digital SLR camera. Next week I will try to take more pictures with the SLR. If anyone sees their picture on this blog and would like it removed please send me an email and it will be taken down immediately.
Here are some students that I ran into on the MRT. The below photo is of some pupils taking a smoke break between classes.
Hanging out on the 6th floor outside the Industrial Design Department.
The Industrial Design students are always creating such unique sculptural works of art. It is wonderful to see their work on display and frequently the 6th floor hallway is transformed into exhibit space.
The administration building
A final view of the mountains from the inside of the shuttle bus to Taipei.
