Each year, as the academic year commences, Tamkang holds a unique welcoming ritual for newly arrived freshmen. The ritual involves new students, teachers, and the president of TKU, as well as a steep slope with a peculiar name: the ‘Slope of Overcoming Difficulty’. Comprising of 132 steps, the slope was once the sole path leading to the Tamsui Campus. Now, students and staff scale the slope to truly live out the message behind the slope: that difficulties are temporary and can be overcome. The scaling of the slope has become a Tamkang tradition, which this year is being held on the mornings of September 1 and 2.

In these weeks leading up to the start of the new academic year, a number of other activities have been planned, too. There’ll be student and family orientations, a dormitory open house, freshmen orientation camps organized by academic departments, a beginning of semester lecture series, as well as student association recruitment activities and student society week.
