The Academic Division of the NTU Student Association has launched the Po-Ya Late Night Salon as a platform for open discussion. The Salon provides a casual setting outside of class for students to meet to discuss and learn more about topical issues and current affairs that are of particular interest to them.
It is important for students at NTU to pursue academic knowledge, but as members of civil society they should also be informed abouf public affairs here on campus, in Taiwan and in the world at large. The Student Association hopes the Salon will create opportunities for students to develop their interests in public affairs and learn to express their opinions reasonably while considering other viewpoints. Late Night Salon topics have included condom vending machines on campus, food safety, higher education, and the ideal university campus.
Every student is welcome to join the discussions. The stydents are encouraged to let their voice be heard as well as to hear the voices of other students.
The Salon meets on designated week nights in the round table area on the first floor of the Liberal Education Classroom Building (Po-Ya Hall). Visit the NTU Student Association's website for meeting times and topics.
