Thousand-year-old university in China

The Yuelu Academy in Changsha.

An overview of the campus. Nice place. The snow is from that same storm that got me in Wuhan.

Lectern of the main lecture hall.

A nice, collegial passageway.

Period wood-cut, showing that even a thousand years ago, professors sometimes had to be brought back to the campus in wheelbarrows.

Confucian temple on campus.

No idea about student fees, administration, or tenure.
