國立清華大學 外國語文學系
Although the Department of Foreign Languages and Literature is situated high on a hill in the Humanities and Social Sciences Building, students are never lonely. The Students’ Association often holds many interesting activities, such as the Welcome party and camping trip for new students, which is co-hosted with other departments such as the Power MechanicalEngineering Department and the Engineering and System Science Department. Other events include the Book Fair, Movie Appreciation Night, English Talent Show, and the Christmas Dance. All Tsing Hua students are invited to attend the events, adding vitality to the large campus.

The highlight of the year is the senior class play— in English. The students are in charge of all aspects of the play, including directing, acting, stage design, props, lighting, sound effects, costumes and make-up, and even fund-raising and publicity. Through all these activities, students not only improve their English language skills, but they also learn other interpersonal skills as they work together as a team. The annual senior class play has been a tradition in the department since the performance by the first graduating class in April, 1985, and every December it attracts an audience from on and off campus to enjoy the performance.

Students in the department are active in campus clubs and societies as well as in sports activities. Students also participate in the annual Mei-Ju Games, a series of sports competitions between Tsing Hua University and neighboring Chiao Tung University held every March.
