Built on the features of tourism colleges, GLTU has formed a distinctive cultural education model. With a focus on the integration of campus culture and splendid traditional culture, we have created a group of campus culture brands with distinctive characteristics of tourism colleges, such as Qixuan Yuefu, ceramic culture transmission, and red tourism culture inheritance; with a focus on the combination of campus culture and professional training, we have achieved one unique cultural activity for each school of GLTU; with a focus on the integration of campus culture and characteristic sports culture, we have developed special baseball and softball games that cultivate college students’ team spirit and help them build strong character. The baseball and softball teams have won 12 national championships and represented Guangxi for the 12th National Games. The ceramic culture transmission project won the first prize of Campus Culture Construction of Guangxi in 2014 and the Excellence Award in the eighth Campus Culture Construction of the Ministry of Education. The “Qixuan Yuefu” Project won the National University’s Outstanding Traditional Chinese Culture Award, representing a new breakthrough in campus culture development.
GLTU is actively involved in cultural inheritance and innovation of minority nationality. The “Qixuan Yuefu” formed in 2014 has integrated symphony performances of ethnic minorities such as Zhuang, Dong, Miao, Yao and Jing in Guangxi. It is a campus cultural brand featuring outstanding cultural traditions and distinctive artistic characteristics.
