Lin Sheng-hsiang: GREAT ENVIRONMENT CAN INSPIRE CREATIVITY
Alumnus of Department of Transportation Management and winner of three prizes in the 16th Golden Melody Award
Tamkang University locates on the margin of the city and is close enough to the Taipei downtown. The perfect location helps TKU students to enjoy the great environment in the suburb area while also have the convenient transportation. This is one of the reasons why many TKU students are talented in artistic creation. It is because of the inspiration one found in the Mother Nature. The first song I wrote was about Tamkang. The TKU also continues to produce some of greatest talents in Taiwan. I hope all TKU students can make use of the unique environment here to work on his or her creativity.

GILLIES YANG: TKU SHOULD DEVELOP ITS OWN UNIQUE QUALITY AND CREATE MORE COURSES
Alumnus of the Department of Mass Communication, Best Director and Best Screenplay Writer in 2002 Golden Bell Award
I know that Tamkang University has won many awards, however, I think it’s time for the school authority to reconsider that if the university has its own uniqueness and what makes TKU graduates favorite among local enterprises. In my personal view, I know that TKTV channel focuses more on covering news stories and does not spend much time in teaching students about filming in comparison with other universities. I hope the school can have more professional courses in filming and to hold cross-school interaction with other universities such as Shih Hsin University. Students should also be encouraged to participate in student film festivals hold outside the TKU. ( ~ Yeh Yun-kai )
