The 115th Anniversary of Peking University

West Gate of Peking University
It is the Homecoming Day for Peking University's alumni on May 4th every year, coinciding with the university's anniversary celebration. Today's postcard commemorates the 115th Anniversary of Peking University, founded in 1898. Since the campus is on the site of royal gardens in the Qing Dynasty, it retains many historical structures. The West Gate leading to the campus is the most well known for the painted murals on its ceiling, similar to those on the Long Covered Walkway in the Summer Palace.
