On the evening of September 2nd, the Hangzhou Normal University Freshmen Welcome Party, called “The Night of Dreams”, were held at the Cangqian Campus. More than 5,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students gathered together, celebrating the start of a new semester.

Chen Chunlei, the Secretary of the Party Committee of the university, attended the ceremony along with other members of the school’s party and management team, top talents and teacher representatives, alumni representatives, the heads of each college.

In his enthusiastic speech, Chen Chunlei encouraged the freshmen to “read thousands of books and travel thousands of miles.” He pointed out that students should develop their passion and love for books and knowledge through massive reading to continuously seek and learn new knowledge, instead of learning just for the sake of passing exams or getting a diploma; and they should actively learn professional knowledge and skills for the benefit of the country, society and humanity. He encouraged the students to cherish the youthful years, adhering to the motto of “Diligent, Honest, Erudite”, and promoting the spirit of “Inclusive, Open, Positive”, and to eventually become an intellectual through studying at the university to contribute to the development of the society and the country.

Alumni representative Xu Bohua looked back at his own experience of teaching and entrepreneurship, and proposed three requirements “self-discipline”, “keep learning” and “doing sports”. He encouraged the students to be kind, to be focused on learning, and to exercise at the same time to keep healthy.

Professor Cong Yusheng of the Medical School gave his speech as a teacher representative. He started with his research on the field of cell biology, showing the similarities between the microscopic cell and the macro society. He called on the students to grasp the depth of life and enrich the meaning of life in choosing and being chosen, and to become the best self.

Zhu Liting, a Class 2018 undergraduate student of the School of Education, gave her speech on behalf of all freshmen. She called on the students to achieve extraordinary things and to create the unique culture of Hangzhou Normal University. Liu Xiao, a graduate student of the Art Education Research Institute, talked about the inheritance, aesthetics and entertainment of Hangzhou Normal University. He also sent a message to the new students to encourage them to live their dreams at the campuses of Hangzhou Normal University.

At the opening ceremony, the school leaders and guests presented awards to the representatives of the freshmen scholarship recipients.

Later the “The Night of Dreams” welcome party brought a wonderful performance to all the freshmen. On this night, the bright lights bloomed in the central square of the Cangqian Campus, welcoming newcomers to begin a new stage of their life.

May all 2018 freshmen be able to achieve their dreams in Hangzhou Normal University.

校友代表徐博华回望自己停辛贮苦的从教和创业经历,在赠与同学的三句话中分别提出了自律、学习和运动三点要求。他鼓励同学们保持善良,以善良约束自己方为更大的自由;安静专注,学有所得,以思想和专长立于不败之地;同时坚持锻炼,收获健康的身体与成功的本钱。

医学院教授丛羽生作为教师代表发言。他从自己研究的细胞生物学领域切入,展示微观细胞世界与宏观社会的相似之处,号召同学们在选择与被选择之中把握生命的宽度、丰富生命的内涵,成为最好的自己。他希望学生们能够牢记家国情怀,在寻求个人幸福和追求个人理想的同时接受并担负起时代赋予的使命和责任。
