News from Hunan Daily on September 18  (reporter: Yu Rong) Hunan University of Commerce held the freshmen opening ceremony of the year 2017 on September 18. President Chen Xiaohong made a speech at the ceremony, hoping that the students would improve their moral force, be great men, promote action force, act what we believe in, promote happiness and be happy men, cultivate excellence, civilization and diligence as a habit; the following is the part of the speech.

Dear students:

Today, we are here to hold the grand freshmen opening ceremony of the year 2017. At this moment, in the face of the students, I seem to face the sea and have a feeling of spring blossoms, which comes from the unique spiritual temperament of your young people and from the tremendous power full of vigor and hope that can change the world and create the history! Here, on behalf of the Secretary Ya Yang as well as over 20,000 teachers and students, I have spoken to you on behalf of over 20,000 teachers, I gives regards to you: welcome to Hunan University of Commerce!

My students, at this ceremony today, I want you not only to feel the strength of the example and take a positive effort to inherit the power, but also to bear in mind the glory of our university and step forward confidently; I hope you will understand the future of our university and make great efforts to contribute to creation. I am happy to tell my classmates that, shortly before, the provincial government and the provincial education department have incorporated the “Name of Changing” and “Doctoral Program Application” into the “13th Five-Year Plan” of Hunan education; our university is increasing the support and actively seeking approval from the higher-level departments such as the Ministry of Education; in addition, our university seizes every minute to achieve the goal of “rising into the first class universities”. Hunan University of Commerce is building the first-class regional university of finance and economics with mystical powers.

Therefore, I hope our students can try to improve the three abilities and strive for talented persons.

Firstly, I hope that students try to improve your moral force and be great men.

General secretary Xi Jinping said: “Men without virtues can’t keep a foothold in the society;” and “men with bad habits have narrow mind, and men with few talents can’t absorb the knowledge widely.” The force of morality is the force of prosperity, the force of reassuring the people, the force of harmony and the power of success, which is the fundamental guarantee of the correct value choice and the dynamic source of the healthy growth; the fact shows that the moral force is directly proportional to the achievement of the human. Therefore, the students should remember that the four-year compulsory courses of the university are aimed at “moral cultivation”; you should improve the moral force continuously, go beyond the impermanence of life, let the virtue leave the fragrance and release the light.

Of course, the moral glory is not shown by wearing the mink coat or by the splendor of jewels. As the old saying goes “it’s very difficult to learn a good thing while it’s easy to learn a bad thing.” The process of moral cultivation is an process of constant climbing and a rising process of self-transcendent.

We hope that the students will try to see a wise good man and try to emulate him, advocate good virtues, pure your styles, enrich your taste, replenish your inner quality, strengthen the sense of social responsibility and undertake dedication spirits and do not be exquisite and indifferent egoist. You should consciously abandon vulgar and low interests, consciously oppose money worship, hedonism and extreme individualism, don’t shake for a momentary interest, don’t be irritable for a momentary reputation, dare to say “no” to venality, be determined not to swindle and sell fake and shoddy goods!

I hope that more and more of you will be helpful, kind and friendly, sincere and honest, love each other to light up your own and pass on the noble virtues. May you make your success in virtues as the greatest success and travel all over the world by virtues!

Secondly, I hope that students will try to improve your action force and act what we believe in.

We are in the age of rapid change; cloud computing, Internet, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, intelligent manufacturing, green technology and so on are developing rapidly. In economic transformation period, China faces unprecedented challenges and many opportunities.

In the face of the world with rapid changes, only the men who can see clearly the situation, seize opportunities to move forward and do what we believe in can take the lead in making a breakthrough. In this age, those students who hold the self-righteous satisfaction, doze in the class, play the cell phone after class, only enter the amusement park and never enter the library will not catch up with the fast changing times, will not be able to make up for the precious youth.

I hope you’re diligent in learning and thinking, and you should make your head full and then make your pocket full. You should learn knowledge extensively, deeply, critically and think about it. Through thinking and questioning, tracing back the source and probing into the bottom truth, we can gain correct and penetrating views; through thinking, we can build a bridge to the new knowledge and the new field. We should advocate practice, learn for practice, promote action with knowledge, promote learning knowledge with action, do what we believe in, use knowledge and thought to guide practice and benefit mankind and society better.

Thirdly, I hope that students will cultivate excellence, civilization and diligence as a habit and be happy men.

Pursuit of happiness is one of the eternal themes of human being, and is the inevitable theme of university education. When you try to improve your moral force and understanding during the university, I believe that your ability to pursue, feel, create and share happiness is growing invisibly.

Of course, happiness is never easy to gain. I want to tell our students that the ideal miss, the target migration, the direction deviation, the value loss, laziness and indulgence, the delay, the hobby loss, the low interest, the bad communication, the cavil, the psychological fragility, the bad pressure resistance, the lack of exercise, the physical weakness, and so on all influence, weaken or even destroy the people’s well-being.

To be a happy student, I hope students will cultivate excellence, diligence and civilization as a habit. If you don’t work hard, your talents match with your caprice. If you don’t work hard, your footsteps will catch up with your parents’ speed of aging. We must know that the success is achieved by hard work and the glory can’t be gained by waiting! “A man should be ambitious and strong-minded, because he has a heavy burden and a long way to go.” “God helps those who help themselves.” “Nothing is difficult only if you are hard-working.” My dear students, cherish the moment, lift up your struggle and move forward.

Finally, please bear in mind that today is September 18. You school life starts; you have taken the baton of history; do not forget our history and revitalize China!
