The School Song

In 1977 STUST adopted the song below as its anthem. The founder and former president of the school, Wen-Ping Hsin penned the words of the song, and his sister, Yong-Xiu Hsin, a famous vocal musician, composed the music to accompany the words he had written.

The song’s melody is beautifully light and lively, embodying the youthfulness of the STUST student body. The song gives the impression of the feeling of warm spring breezes, and the progression of the rhythm sounds like many streams converging into a large river. This symbolizes the many departments and colleges forming one university. The lyrics are simple but profoundly meaningful.
