“We have to go for class first. Thank you, president, Happy New Year! ” On the noon of December 31, 40 students chatted with the school leaders at the dining table on the second floor of the teachers’ activity center. As a warm winter activity, president Chen Yiyi, vice presidents Lou Binchao and Xu Jinzhong, deputy secretary of the university party committee Chen Wei and assistant President Chen Chunfeng had lunch with students from needed families to talk about their college life.

During the meal, Chen asked the students about their major backgrounds and learning experiences. The students described their learning and part-time jobs one by one. Their confident language expression, clear learning goals and fulfilling university life were affirmed by the president. Chen Yiyi encouraged the students to develop in a diversified way. He also encouraged them to train themselves more in college and broaden their employment direction.
Lou Binchao encouraged the students to study quietly and master professional skills, which would lay a foundation for them to become useful talents in the society in the future and also accumulate capital for them to master a skill and change the fate of their families. Xu Jinzhong hopes that students can strengthen self-management and self-restraint, learn to arrange time effectively, learn to tolerate and understand, learn to live in harmony, and create a brilliant life by their own efforts.
