 A field course in a university in Sichuan: a compulsory course with full credits to graduate.


The scene was spectacular for the students to harvest the rape scene. VCG/ supply diagram Xinhua news agency, Chengdu, April (Xinhua) 27 photos of rapeseed harvested by a group of students holding a sickle in the rapeseed of one mans high school have been popular in Sichuans College Students circle. The rape field in the photo is not in the countryside, but in the campus of the Jincheng college in Sichuan University. The school has a soil regulation: all students have to plant their fields in person, otherwise they can not graduate. In the campus, the reporter saw that nearly 20 acres of farmland were planted with flowers and vegetables, and several color scarecrows made by the students stood in a green vegetable garden to drive out birds pecking birds. Deng Zhongjun, a teacher at the Jincheng College of Sichuan University, pointed to a newly harvested rape field that students were guided by their teachers for hoeing, planting, watering, mowing, harvesting, and rapeseed. The whole process was completed by students. The school bought a straw crusher, which would crush the rape pole in the field and turn it into fertilizer. As for the rapeseed oil, it will be pressed into rapeseed oil after sun drying. It will be voluntarily subscribed by the teachers and students. The income will be used for the labor cost of the next quarter. These rapeseed oils will not be sold outside the country, and they will be in short supply every year. Deng Zhongjun said. A few years ago, the Sichuan University Jincheng college stipulated that the labor course was a compulsory course. It would be a required course for 2 credits. At least 64 hours of school should be completed. All the students must be completed without graduation to graduate. The school specially allocated a piece of land in the school and set up a practical platform for labor education -- the student farm. Every year, school teachers and florist will teach new farming skills by hand, and sometimes teachers will take students to learn around the vegetable base. In addition to rape, perennial crops are sunflower, lotus and some vegetables. Every spring and summer, rape flowers and sunflowers are opened to the next stage and become a sea of flowers. It is a great photo destination for teachers and students from schools. Zou Guangyan, Dean of the Jincheng College of Sichuan University, said that the original purpose of the course was to cultivate the spirit of hard work and teamwork of the college students. Through the exercise of labor education, students can be more hard-working and down to the ground, and they can better adapt to their jobs after they go to society. Many students have benefited a lot from it: from the sowing to the harvest, the real understanding of who knows the dish, the grain are hard , looking at the fruit of his hard work, can feel the joy and pride of labor.
