  Singing the university anthem and military songs has greatly furthered the students’ understanding of NWAFU’s long history and profound cultural background. The university motto of Sincerity, Simplicity, Bravery and Perseverance  have been deeply rooted in the heart of all new students who are fully aware of the mission a student of agricultural and forestry university should take. The inspiration of university anthem raises up the curtain of their new college life. Being down-to-earth in study but innovative in thoughts, they will practice the integration of personal dream with times’ call and the national revitalization, and develop to be useful talents who know and love agriculture.
