  • Students at Sichuan University’s Jincheng College plant crops at night on the campus’s farmland in Chengdu, Sichuan province on Nov. 6. Since 2006, the college has required each student to labor for 40 hours on its farms before they can graduate. Due to heavy rain, the time available for autumn planting has been cut short. This means students are rushing to get the planting done and working late into the night. Photo: VCG_Gallery: Digging for Their Degrees
