The students of Peking University enjoy a rich and vibrant campus life. Peking University has been famous for its student activities ever since the time of its foundation. Enjoying the full support from the university, students are encouraged to experience colorful campus lives. There are more than two hundred student-organized associations, and a range of student activities running year-round, which satisfy the different demands of local as well as international students. Through these activities, students cultivate their interpersonal friendship, creativity and leadership.

Every year, there are several carefully designed festivals and activities, which are regarded as main campus events. Some of them are annual, such as New Year’s Eve Celebration, or the International Cultural Festival. Others may be the result of the university encouraging students to follow current trends or explore new activities; the Singing Competition for Foreign Students is one such new event.

You get out of college what you put into it, and that’s true outside of the classroom as well,” one student said.He also recognized that being a part of extracurricular activities has made him a more well-rounded person, and has helped him to develop the skills to become a leader.

Each year, hundreds of academic seminars and lectures are offered to students.
