Dear professors, and international students:
I am very glad to be here to attend today’s graduation ceremony for you. First of all, on behalf of the university I would like to extend my warm congratulations to the students who have successfully completed your studies. I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to the professors and teachers who dedicated so much for the education of your international students.
Four years ago, you became a member of UPC with the thirst for knowledge and the desire for Chinese culture. After four years struggling and hardworking, we are extremely proud to see you are standing here with all the sweet fruits you harvested. I firmly believe that the sense of seeking truth and fact, the spirit of hardworking and the eternal friendship you obtained here will accompany your life-long journey.
Dear students, “毕业” in Chinese means a successful finishing of one period of study. However, commencement in English also has the meaning of a new start.
Therefore, it can be said the graduation is the destination and also the starting point. I hope you can remember and carry forward the UPC spirits back to home. Use the knowledge and practical experiences you learnt to contribute towards your countries. The “Belt and Road” strategy and Human Destiny Community are calling for the younger generation like you.
You are the windows between different cultures, you are the messenger of friendships and you are the bridge connecting the oversea programs. In order to finish this glorious task, I hope every one of you can share the story of Chinese development and the core of UPC spirit when you go back to your own country.
Dear students, in the future life and career, you may encounter large amounts of challenges and difficulties. Please do remember UPC will always be your strong backup and eternal spiritual home. And, you are always welcome back to home!
No matter wherever you go, no matter whoever you can be, UPC will always bless you. Wish you a successful future and a happy life!
Thank you all!
