The College motto was derived from The Rites of Zhou, one of three ancient ritual texts listed among the Confucian classics. The first two moral principles emphasize the pursuing of knowledge and the nurturing of character; while the last two focus on learning the right attitude in conducting oneself in society.
- Pursuing knowledge, with the spirit of exploration
- Being considerate, aspiring to the perfect personality
- Being loyal to others, with a sense of responsibility
- Being kind to people, handling things with moderation
