Colleges and universities bring farming into compulsory course


Other schools will arrive at the classroom as soon as the bell rings, while the students of Jincheng College of Sichuan University will “farm” as soon as the bell rings. In order to cultivate the students’ hard-working character, the school moved the farm to the campus, set “farming” as a compulsory course for students, and required students to work in the field to earn credits.
It is reported that since 2006, Jincheng College of Sichuan University has opened this special “farming” course, requiring each student to complete 64 class hours and two credits of labor class on the farm before graduation.
