In the midst of summer blossoms and lively melodies, the graduation ceremony for the 2023 graduates of North Jin College (Xiangtan University) was grandly held on the morning of June 16th at the university's track and field stadium. Graduates, dressed in bachelor's degree robes and filled with excitement and joy, gathered for this significant moment in their lives. Professor Liu Guoquan, Vice President of Hunan University of Business and Technology, attended the graduation ceremony and delivered a speech. Professor Yuan Libin, Chairman of the Academic Degrees Evaluation Committee and President of the university, also attended the ceremony, encouraging graduates to pursue their dreams, march forward with determination, and bravely shoulder the responsibilities of the times. He awarded degree certificates and tassels to representatives of the graduates.

The graduation ceremony commenced with the majestic national anthem. Vice President Liu Guoquan of Hunan University of Business and Technology delivered the opening speech. On behalf of the university, he warmly congratulated the 2023 graduates on successfully completing their studies and embarking on a new journey in life, heading towards higher, farther, and greater stages. He mentioned that the 2023 graduates are the final batch of students from North Jin College of Hunan University of Business and Technology. Their smooth graduation signifies the successful completion of the 22-year history of North Jin College. He encouraged the graduates to maintain a lifelong learning attitude, gaze at the stars with courage, shine like a star, and strive forward through hard work. He wished them success in opening a new chapter in life through perseverance and struggle.

Professor Zhu Yumei, Vice President, read out the decision to grant graduation and bachelor's degrees. This year, a total of 1833 graduates successfully completed their studies. Among them, 1643 graduates received graduation certificates and bachelor's degrees from North Jin College, and 190 graduates from adult education programs received graduation certificates and bachelor's degrees from Xiangtan University.

Professor Ma Weiping, Vice President, read out the documents recognizing the outstanding graduates of ordinary higher education institutions in Hunan Province for the 2023 academic year and the outstanding graduates of the university for the same year. Fifty-four students were recognized as provincial outstanding graduates, while four students were acknowledged as provincial outstanding graduates in innovation and entrepreneurship. One hundred ninety-three students, including Chen Sheng, were named university-level outstanding graduates, and four students, including Zhou Jie, were recognized as university-level outstanding graduates in innovation and entrepreneurship.

Chen Weidong, Dean of North Jin College (Changsha Campus), Wang Wenping, Secretary of the Party Committee, and Zhao Chan, Secretary of the Party Committee of Xiangtan University, presented certificates of honor to provincial and university-level outstanding graduates. They encouraged the graduates to cherish their honors, guard against arrogance and impatience, forge ahead with determination, integrate their personal ideals into the cause of the party and the country, and run vigorously on the track of youth, striving for more achievements.

Wu Jingling, a student from the Marketing Class of 1922 in the School of Business, represented all the graduates in expressing sincere thanks to the leaders and teachers for their hard work. She recalled the four years of university life, from the hardships of military training, the dedication in the study room, the sweat on the sports field, the rush for courses in front of the computer, to the tireless guidance of teachers and planting chili seedlings in the "Happy Farm." These vivid scenes were vivid in her memory. She emphasized that the four years of university study and practice, guided by the motto of "unity of knowledge and action, and excellence," inspired her to "learn in action and act in learning." Through continuous improvement, she laid a solid foundation for her future growth and success. She said, "Graduation is like a big exclamation mark. From now on, we will bid farewell to a period of innocent youth, a time of youthful recklessness, and an age full of fantasies... In the future journey, we may face various storms and reefs, experience various difficulties and obstacles, but we are prepared to overcome difficulties and face challenges!"

Amidst enthusiastic applause, Professor Liu Guoquan and President Yuan Libin presented degree certificates and tassels to twelve student representatives one by one, congratulating them on successfully completing their studies and encouraging them to contribute to society and repay society with the knowledge they have acquired.

On behalf of the university, President Yuan Libin extended warm congratulations to all the students who successfully completed their studies and expressed heartfelt thanks for the support and cooperation of Hunan University of Business and Technology over the past four years. He recalled the little by little growth and progress of the 2023 graduates with the university and gave full affirmation to the achievements of the graduates. He shared three reflections on graduation.

First is "dreams." He expressed that without dreams, it is not called youth. Dreams are an important driving force in life. Any great figure puts national ideals above financial interests. The three regions of Hunan, Xiang, and Dong have nurtured a group of great people. He shared the story of the youth of Mao Zedong in Hunan, emphasizing that revolutionary leaders like Comrade Mao Zedong, representing the old generation of proletarian revolutionaries, did not come from impoverished backgrounds. They harbored the revolutionary ideals of changing old China, persevered, and successfully established the new China. He hoped that everyone would remember the "greatness of the country," connect their youthful years and ambitious aspirations with the modernization of China, aim high, not be moved by petty gains, be persistent and resolute, not be trapped by setbacks and dangers. He encouraged them to strive for self-improvement, continue to work hard, and achieve a beautiful life through dedication.


Second is "planning." Each generation has its responsibilities. The young people of the Z generation will shoulder the heavy responsibility of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation. The next five years are crucial for all graduates. On the one hand, the country faces significant economic pressure, and everyone should quickly find employment and start their own businesses. On the other hand, the five years after graduation are a critical period for understanding society and the country. He hoped that the students would rediscover their coordinates through practice.


Third is "reading." He encouraged everyone to persist in lifelong learning, read more books, engage in more practical activities, find nourishment from books, open up wisdom through practice, and achieve a happy life.


After the completion of the main program of the graduation ceremony, President Yuan Libin, as the Chairman of the Academic Degrees Evaluation Committee and President of the university, individually handed out tassels and degree certificates to more than 1000 graduates who participated in the ceremony. He warmly shook hands and took photos with the graduates, wishing them a bright future and happiness.


In order to help graduates better preserve the precious memories of their graduation moment, the Student Affairs Office specially prepared customized photo frames for each student to hold their wonderful photos from the graduation ceremony. Many students expressed that being able to receive tassels and certificates personally from the president and leaving precious photos was a particularly memorable experience. They planned to place the developed photos in the frames provided by the school as a permanent memento.
