College in museum- museum in college

Here in Polus International, you will find it hard to tell whether it is a college inside a museum or a museum inside a college. Our initial will in building the campus was to make best use of the material and resources available to us. When the old architectural components and home furnishings ridded of in the rapid urbanization of surroundings areas were presented to us, it dawned on us that such items contained significant material and cultural value. Charged with a vision towards frugality and resource reutilization, we started to unleash our imagination to tap into this wealth we have endowed in a creative fashion. By combining it with elements of intangible cultural heritage such as traditional techniques and craftsmanship, we built up a unique private college with modern Chinese characteristics. Through preserving cultural traditions, emphasizing the value of people and optimizing the use of resources, we hope to bring our students a spirit of dignity and an attitude to life that is filled with appreciation for truth, virtue and beauty. In building this idyllic campus we have in a way achieved developmental protection of historic and cultural heritage, such experience is in alliance with the cultural thread of this era.
