First ofall, on behalf of the teachers and students of the whole school, I would liketo express my warmest congratulations to all the graduates! Thank you for choosingto go with Dalian Neusoft University of Information all the way in the bestyears! At the same time, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to theparents who have worked hard to raise you and the teachers who have taught youcarefully!
Four years ago,carrying the expectations and enthusiasm of the family, you gathered in thisbeautiful campus from all sides of the motherland with the hope of theuniversity. At that time, you called her—Neusoft; in the process of pursuingyour dreams of youth as well as yourselves in the four years of time, you aregoing from immaturity to maturity. Nowadays, this campus has a new title foryou—alma mater. I deeply miss the four seasons that you have traveled with ourschool and the years we have experienced together.
In the past four years,with the spirit of “innovation and creativity to refresh the vitality ofyouth”, many students of you not only won awards in many innovation andentrepreneurial events during college, but also established their ownentrepreneurial teams and established a physical company to achieve theirentrepreneurial dreams with innovation and hard work. You “have created thevalue of youth with hard work and perseverance". Many students of you havewon awards, won academic awards, published academic papers, and applied forinvention patents during various competitions at home and abroad. They alsoobtained master's degree admissions from well-known universities at home andabroad. They have realized the dream of further study with diligence and deepcultivation. You have "composed the music of youth with the spirit ofcooperation and enterprising". While more students of you are goodclassmates and good partners during their schooling days. With solid knowledgeand rich community practice experience, they can get the best employment offerand have an ideal job with practice and truth. Classmates, in the past fouryears, you have used your own actions to outline what youth should look like,and your best youth time also left you the memory of the alma mater. It is thisbit of growth and progress that has become the development and growth of thealma mater.
In the past fouryears, the conditions and level of DNUI’s school-running have been improvedyear by year—our school has successfully passed the qualification assessment ofundergraduate teaching work; it has been rated as the first batch of 50universities with innovative and entrepreneurial experiences, as well as thefirst batch of 99 reforming model universities with deepening innovation andentrepreneurship education by the Ministry of Education in China; it also hasbecome the first batch of civilized campuses in Liaoning Province, as well asthe first batch of 10 demonstration-oriented universities in Liaoning Province.These achievements condensed the hard work of every teacher and student of ourschool. Once again, thank you for choosing Neusoft to fight for your youth. Ialso firmly believe that as a graduate of Neusoft, you will have a betterperformance with your hard-working quality on more platforms outside the almamater in the future!
My dear fellowstudents, you are about to leave the campus, step into the workplace, and jointhe society. As the president of our school, I want to share with you a fewmore words.
First of all, everygrowth in life comes from the courage to pursue dreams.
"Followingdreams requires passion and ideals, and realizing your dreams requires struggleand dedication," the speech made by General Secretary Xi Jinping at theMay Fourth Youth Day has deeply inspired the majority of young people. Myfellow students, no matter what kind of position you are in the future, I hopethat you will always look up at the stars and stick to your dreams. When youfirst enter into the society, you may face all kinds of confusions andchallenges. The road to the dream may be full of hardships and trials. Theinitial dream may be out of reach. However, I hope that you must have theconfidence to realize your dreams and the courage to pursue your dreams. Onlyby strengthening our own ideals and ambitions, and maintaining our passion andfighting spirit can we make our efforts to have more far-reaching significance!I hope that you will continue to get close to your dreams with perseverance andfinally climb the peak of your dreams.
Second, every growthin life stems from the perseverance of diligent learning.
At the beginning ofyour admission to our school, you can attend classes on time, work hard, adhereto self-study, and work regularly. As time progresses, some of you may slowdown the pace of growth. The main criterion for choosing elective courses is tosee which one is "easy to pass". On the other hand, some of you maycatch up with each other in the ranking of "Glory of the King"(nameof an online game), while looking for various reasons for the decline inacademic results. My dear fellow students, in the face of ever-acceleratingworld changes and uncertain futures, it is difficult to adapt to the needs ofthe times if you just learn for a moment or learn with the fortune ofknowledge. "Base yourself on learning first", you may continuouslyinternalize the knowledge learned into its own ability only through trulyforming the habit of diligent study and independent thinking, and always maintaininga good learning heart. This ability is the real wealth that others can't takeaway from you, and it is an irreplaceable capital for your future growth. Mydear fellow students, graduation does not mean the end of learning. In thefuture, we still need to persist in learning, constantly correct ourselves, andbreak through ourselves in order to live up to a better future.
In addition, everygrowth in life comes from the wisdom knowing when to start and when to stop.
At present, scienceand technology are changing the world at an unprecedented rate. This changewill bring new opportunities, and you will be born at the right time; but atthe same time, the uncertainty of change will make the society full of complexchallenges, and you are shouldering the burden. In this era of informationexplosion, indulging in fragmented communication and fast-food reading mayinterfere with and influence our judgment. I hope that you will integrate theindependent thinking ability, innovation consciousness and exploration spiritthat you have practiced in the future into your work life. You should maintainlasting enthusiasm and rational judgment in life instead of blindly accepting,echoing, being instilled, being entertained, and being consumed. "Don'tlet your mind become the racecourse of other people's thoughts", but to bea "person with wisdom" who knows clearly and independently when tostart or when to stop doing something. You should treat fame and fortunecorrectly, and stick to principles in everything. You should do everythingguided by rational judgment and independent thinking.
Finally, every growthin life comes from a grateful and inclusive mind.
Everyone is not anisolated entity on the road of growth. Every step of your progress and everysuccess are due to your own efforts. However, you must not forget the help ofyour parents, teachers, friends and even a stranger. Gratefulness is a"verb" that requires action to prove, for example, pouring a glass ofwater for your parents, or giving a sincere greeting to your teachers andrelatives during the holidays. In the future, no matter what kind of situationyou are in, please be happy to serve others, take the initiative to think forothers, respect others, tolerate others, and thank those who have helped you.Strengthen yourselves and then help those who need to be cared, which may makeyour life more spacious and thicker in the sunshine with a grateful heart.
