The group cohesion of the Qinghua Clique is based on school ties of its graduates, which
are calculated according to the following scheme. First, a pair of students gets a zero point if they
studied at Qinghua University at different times. Second, a pair of students gets a quarter of a point,
if they studied in different departments. Third, a pair of students gets half a point, if they studied in
different classes of the same department. Finally, a pair of students gets one point, if they studied in
the same class of the same department.
Clearly, there are three cohorts of Qinghua graduates among the Seventeenth CC members.
The majority of them entered the Qinghua University before 1966, the start of the Cultural
Revolution. Hua Jianmin was admitted to Qinghua in 1957. Hu Jintao was enrolled in the
Department of Water Conservancy in 1959. Wu Bangguo entered the Qinghua University in 1960.
Tian Chengping went to Qinghua in 1962. Chen Yuan, Liu Yandong, and Zhou Ji were admitted to
the University in 1964. The second cohort consisted of only one person: Xi Jinping. He entered the
Qinghua during the Cultural Revolution, in 1975. Finally, Lou Jiwei was a cohort by himself. He is
the only person in this group that entered the Qinghua University after the Cultural Revolution. He
studied computer science at Qinghua from 1978 to 1982. In addition, Zhou Xiaochuan is also a
category by himself. He did not attend the Qinghua University as an undergraduate student but he
obtained a doctoral degree in economic system engineering at Qinghua in 1985. The group cohesion
of the Qinghua Clique declined substantially. Instead of 142 points as in 2002, it was only 16 points
in 2007.
