To the 2022 Graduates of the College of Arts
Dear 2022 graduates:
Time flies, our times are flourishing, and we are facing new years.
In midsummer, the campus is full of lush vegetation, and everything is beautiful. You have also reached a new peak in your journey of self-transcendence and perfection. During your study, the College of Arts has high hope to nurture you and witness your growth. Your daily progress and transformation are engraved in the hearts of all the teachers in the college. On the occasion of parting, in addition to congratulations and blessings, we also want you to take away our wishes before hitting the road.
Seeking knowledge on the Wenchang Road. “Books are like old friends accompanying us day and night.”
You immerse yourself in the plain and simple school building. The teachers are experts in the every field both inside and outside the class, chasing ideas and academy. You are here day and night, reciting knowledge, reserving profound and well-versed education, forging your brilliant ideas and abilities to skip over the waves. These have laid a solid foundation for you to become outstanding teachers, future educators and industry leaders in the future. However, “those who start well are numerous, but those who finish well are few.” To achieve lofty ideals and remarkablelife, we still need to keep our feet on the ground and make steady progress. I hope you will always keep the passion of self-improvement and continuous progress. In the future life, you will never give up accumulation and have a daily routine to showcase the character of NENU and glorify the College of Arts.
Immersing yourselves in the ocean of knowledge. “The essence for studying is for the ordinary people.”
You have been educated in the “cradle of the people’s teachers” with sincerity,you have internalized the spirit of “strengthening teachers to serve the country, seeking truth and creating” in your heart. This is the moral character and feelings that have been forged in the college’s 70-odd years’ endeavor to cultivate talents. “It is not difficult to impart exquisite professional knowledge to others, but it is not easy to teach people how to behave with profound knowledge and noble personality.” It’s a long way to go to establish ourselves and inspire the people. Hope you can stick to your original heart, take on the mission, go deep into our country and people with fearless spirit, be wise and sensible, and cultivate students. You are all cultivating people for the Party and the country, where your heart and feelings are. Only by showing your own knowledge, talent and realm on the land of the motherland can youshow the noble character of “diligence and innovation, and being a model of virtue for others”.
Spreading knowledge. “Blow out the yellow sand, then you will find gold.”
On the eve of showing your ambitions, the coronavirus pandemic hits, and the situation is critical. In the face of difficulties and dangers, you are not afraid of hardships and dangers, work tirelessly, regardless of gains and losses, jump into the forefront of epidemic prevention and control, and work together with teachers and peers to build a rock-solid line of defense against the epidemic. The safety of the campus and the health of teachers and students are safe because of your common persistence and dedication. You have practiced and realized the literary value of “The moral significance of literature is enormous” in life and study, allowing us to appreciate the demeanor of young people in the new era of being virtuous, abiding by public morality, and strict with private morality, and it has also strengthened the confidence for us to help each other and overcome difficulties together.
Dear students, you have numerous achievements today, and will be the pillar of society tomorrow. The song of graduation is played, the wind is blowing, the tide is rising, and the magnificent picture of national rejuvenation and human progress calls for your passion and strength. May you stand up to extraordinary standards in your constant life, and may you shine dazzlingly in every field!
