Monks and nuns have a strict NFAM habit. They will not have supper. At 7 p.m., they have an hour to study by themselves in the classroom. The learning content is different from Tuesday to Sunday, including meditation, the history of Chinese Buddhism, library, Tiantai, etc. They can arrange time freely after 8:30 p.m. Some of them will play table tennis or badminton in the yard, while others may read books on the lawn. Once in a while, you may find many students chatting on the trails. There is a library in the college with hundreds of thousands of Buddhist books. "Students will go to the library whenever they are free. We have developed such a habit," said Master Changquan.

Founded in 1927, Emei Buddhist College is a four-year full-time undergraduate Buddhist college with Buddhism as its basic discipline. The college focuses on cultivating monks and nuns with management abilities as well as rich Buddhism knowledge. Many excellent graduates have been chosen to further study in foreign countries including Sir Lanka, Canada, Singapore, Nepal, etc.
