Chinese text: Shieh Tung-Min

Between the Keelung River and Jiantan adret,
Our university has stood for decades,
Rising to our country's glory.
Its name stands for practice,
Carrying a profound meaning:
Study to meet practical needs;
Work hard to grow strong.
We emphasize diligence
And four disciplines of life.
We carry on the past and open up the future,
Yet we remain modest and polite.
Having cultivated your character
And managed family's affairs well,
You can govern the country and rule it peacefully.
Don't delay and don't forget it.
Cultivate your character
And manage family's affairs well.
These ancient principles of ethics
Will always keep their value.
