In 1015, it was famous for its study atmosphere and obliged the name by Emperor Zhen Zong. From then on, it became one of the four academies in China. Walking through Song, Yuan, Ming, Qing Dynasties, it was changed to be Hunan University in 1926, with a history of more than one thousand years. It is called a rare "one thousand year institution of higher learning" by modern scholars. The school running history from Yuelu Academy to Hunan University reflects the variance of China's education system and is a reduction of the history of China's education development.
