On October 21, 2016, the school League Committee and the Student Union hosted a gala at gymnasium to welcome the freshmen of Grade 2016. Vice President Tang Ying and Li Xuefeng, Secretary of YAU Discipline Inspection Commission, were present.
On behalf the university authority, Vice-President Tang extended her warmest welcome to the freshmen. With high expectation for them, she encouraged the freshmen to keep the Long March spirit in mind, stick to their original intention and stay the course on their own ‘long march’ of life.
The gala started with a pleasant symphony. Resonant combination songs, passionate modern dances, cool Hip Pop, and distinctive ethnic dances brought the party to climaxes. The affecting poem recital Long March in My Heart, which celebrates the Long March spirit, inspired the patriotic enthusiasm of the audience.
Aimed to enrich students’ life and mind, the gala served as a warm greeting to the freshmen and a platform for their talents. At the same time, it took a retrospect on the history and paid a tribute to our ancestors’ persistence in revolution, implementing and upholding the Long March spirit in a new way.
