Tunghai University is half way up the hill of Dadu Mountain, Taichung. It is one of the few universities in Taiwan with a grand campus and includes subjects from science, engineering, business, as well literature and arts. The beautiful campus has also become one of the most popular outing spots in Taichung. As a Christian university, Tunghai holds an annual Christmas party that attracts not only its own students but also those from other institutes. The backside of campus is close to an industrial zone; there is a large ranch with a small zoo that hosts various poultry and cows. The most known spot at Tunghai is the Luce Chapel. It was designed by Ieoh Ming Pei, a famous architect, and one of its specialities is that was built entirely without using any screws. The unique triangular design of the chapel that shines under sunlight also makes it a romantic and sacred wedding spot. As Tunghai University has a large campus, it is recommended for those visiting the Luce Chapel to enter from the front gate, and those visiting the ranch to enter from the back gate.
