Although it can’t be compared with the first-tier cities, Nanjing can still let you experience the feeling of a metropolis. Unlike most schools that are located in the suburbs, NUA Weigang Campus is only four stops away from Xinjiekou, the busiest area in the city center, and backed by Zijinshan Mountain, a famous mountain in the southeast. The campus has a beautiful environment and a favorable location. From the campus, you can see the rolling Zijinshan Mountain and instantly understand why it is known as the Dragon’s Vein.”

The campus has a long history and there are several cultural relic buildings. The location is excellent. Out the north door is the Xiamafang subway exit, ten minutes to the center of Nanjing Xinjiekou, you can find places to eat, drink and play easily. What makes me most satisfied is that the Weigang Campus is located on the north side of the scenic Zhongshan Mountain, and you can see the green mountains when you look up from the teaching area. On weekends, students can go hiking together and stand on the top of Zhongshan overlooking Xuanwu Lake and the city skyline.”


3. “Weigang Campus is the main campus of Nanjing Agricultural University and can be reached by subway line 2 to the north gate of the school.

The most famous attraction of the campus is the main building which can be seen as soon as you enter the door and has a long history. When the weather is sunny, you can stand in the north of the main building and see Zhongshan Mausoleum, the steps of which can be seen clearly.

There are six cafeterias on campus, each of which is a food court and worth a visit.”

5. “First of all, let’s talk about the environment. Nanjing Agricultural University is located in the suburbs of Nanjing, surrounded by beautiful environment and fresh air. The campus is full of green trees and flowers, giving people a comfortable feeling. At the same time, the school’s architecture is also very distinctive, with the combination of ancient buildings and modern facilities, which makes people feel comfortable. Strolling around the campus can make you feel peaceful and beautiful, and keep you away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Secondly, talk about swimming. Nanjing Agricultural University is an agricultural university, so the swimming facilities on campus are very complete. The water quality of the swimming pool is clear and the water temperature is suitable, which makes people feel comfortable. Here, I can swim to my heart’s content, release pressure and relieve fatigue. In addition, swimming is also a good sport, which can help us strengthen our body and improve our cardiorespiratory function.

Overall, the environment and swimming facilities of Nanjing Agricultural University are excellent. It not only has a beautiful natural environment, but also modern facilities and excellent service. It makes me feel very comfortable and satisfied here. I believe that as time goes by, Nanjing Agricultural University will become better and better and become an ideal school for more students.”
