President Hongmin Liu delivered an inspiring speech entitled Be a Person with Responsibility, Courage, and Perseverance. Liu sent congratulations and best wishes to the new graduates, including 139 Ph.D. graduates and 2121 Master graduates; and extended gratitude to supervisors, and faculty and staff who contributed to the education of graduates.
President Liu outlined three qualities: Responsibility, Courage, and Perseverance. Young people would shoulder responsibilities and possess virtue while facing obstacles in life, thus finding their values through helping others, supporting their family and serving their country. Young people, inheriting great boldness from ancestors, would be courageous to explore the unknown where there are infinite opportunities and challenges especially in the era of the Internet. Brave thinkers and doers are needed to tackle difficulties and create a better world. Perseverance is a precious quality in this fast-changing era, and Core Socialist Values involve patriotism, dedication, integrity, and friendship. Liu suggested that graduates spend time reading every day so that they can gain mental peace, inspire thinking, and accumulate spiritual wealth. At last, he appealed to graduates to remember their original goals and wished them a bright and promising future.
