The 2016 freshman opening ceremony of UESTC was held at the gymnasium of Qing Shuihe campus on the morning of 29, September. Shen Xiaorong, the vice secretary of the CPC Committee presided this ceremonial opening ceremony, and the attendees were the secretary of the CPC Committee  of UESTC, president Li Yanrong, Yu Minming, Luo Jiahui, Zhu Hong, Xiong Caidong, Wang Yafei, Shen Xiaorong, Hu Haoquan, Zeng Yong and other university leader, academician of Chinese Academy of Sciences Liu Shenggang,  heads of all  related departments, over 9,000 freshmen altogether with some students parents.

President Li Yanrong gave all freshmen the first lecture titled as “This is a Great University”. On behalf of UESTC, President Li extended his congratulations to 4960 undergraduate and 4127 graduate students for their excellent performance and successful admission into UESTC. He said: “As you choose UESTC, you have chosen to be linked with information technology either directly or indirectly. One could even argue that there is no other field like information technology, which is always reacting, changing and evolving. For quite a long time, it will remain as the major driving force to the world economic and social development, especially to the economic transformation and upgrading of China. Therefore, undergraduates or postgraduates, as long as you take advantage of this great momentum, you will soon rise and reach eminence.

A university is a special place that you live together as you grow from juvenile to youth.

A great university never depends on the students’ employment rate or their future income, but the setting up standard of behaving and working for the students. Quietly, this standard will flow into their veins, little by little, and upgrade to the standard of life, influencing their whole life and even generations of their family.”

He pointed out that: “students of a great university are the more competent, so they should be more endeavor; the more endeavor, the more successful; the more successful, the more appreciative!” He considered that a great university keeps the leadership at the center of students’ qualities development. Students should train themselves the “New Four Skills” — Listening, Speaking, Reading, and writing. The “New Four Skills” here are important means to get information, learn the world, gain intelligence and wisdom, and develop relationships both in work and life.

He emphasized that a great university is characterized by: The undergraduate programs focus on the general education, and a great engineering university should pay attention to the integration of arts and sciences as well as sciences and engineering; the teachers of a great university not only provide tools when students need, but open more windows for them and tell them what they will see when they are enjoying the scenery. The further education rate of the students of a great university is very high. On the campus of a great university, the regular scenes are like the following: some students are exercising on the sports field, dripping with sweat; some members from student organizations are sitting on the lawn, chatting and discussing; a teacher and the students are around the laboratory table, arguing intensely but freely; a professor is solving problems on the blackboard in the office, as if dancing with great joy...

\

He concluded that: UESTC is exactly such a great university with ambition and aspiration. It is not only a high-quality university featured in electronic information, but also among the top-tier of the nearly 3000 universities and colleges in China. Though certainly you will encounter problems of one kind or another, and even situations less than satisfactory, I can assure you that we have been working very hard and UESTC is on its way to becoming a first-class university with first-class disciplines in the world.
