After over five-month of epidemic quarantine, the first batch of 2020 graduates were warmly welcomed back to our University WHUT. Under the guidance of faculty and staff, more than 400 students entered from the west gate of WHUT in an orderly manner, and completed the stipulated graduation procedures.
At eight o'clock in the morning, the two sides of the Huaxia Road were neatly lined with tents for graduates’ service. The staff of each unit with great passion got ready in advance, dressed in uniforms and wearing masks and gloves. They would try their best to assist the graduates to complete the full set of graduation procedures.
The executive president Mr. Guo Biao, the secretary of the party committee Mr. Ding Dezhi, the founding principal Mr. Wu Yongqiao, the executive vice president Mr.Du Hui, the vice president Mr. Ding Chengzhong and other school leaders went to the entrance of the university early and warmly welcomed the graduates back to WHUT. They had a closer look at the each step of graduation procedures and learned more about the graduates' health examination, accommodation arrangements, and finally expressed their affirmation and gratitude for the hard work and attentive service of the staff and volunteers.
In the west gate square of university, the staff strictly followed the work norms, and took a series of measures, such as temperature measurement, disinfection, verification of identity, replacement of masks, inspection of health codes and test reports of NAT, etc.. It aims to ensure the safety and health of students returning to school. "My classmates, welcome home! Please show your student certificate." After graduation procedures at each school, the teachers carefully checked the secondary NAT of the students. Graduates can receive the graduation certificate, degree certificate, and the "epidemic health package" and "graduation gift bag" for each graduate. In School of Civil Engineering, each graduate also received a souvenir umbrella as a graduation gift. The school would like to express their best wishes for the graduates, for the different colors of these umbrellas are endowed with special lucky meanings.
The graduation procedures are simple and warm. At ten o'clock in the morning, the university held a brief and grand graduation ceremony and degree awarding ceremony for the 2020 students in the Academic Report Hall. Mr. Guo Biao delivered a speech to send blessings and instructions to the 2020 graduates. Mr.Ding Dezhi read out "Decision Recognizing Excellent Graduates of 2020". Mrs.Yang Ailing, a teacher of the School of Biological and Pharmaceutical Engineering, and Wu Qianqian, a graduate of the School of Art Design and Communication, spoke as representatives of teachers and students respectively. Mr. Li Haimin issued a letter of appointment for the alumni liaison. Mr. Ding Chengzhong read out the "Decision on Issuing Graduation Certificates and Bachelor Degree Certificates for the 2020 Graduates". Representatives of 50 graduates came to the stage in order to receive the certificate and take a photo with the school leaders. At the ceremony, the host and executive vice president Mr. Du Hui called three students who did not return to attend the graduation ceremony, and invited them to share the gains and graduating expectation through the big screen. The ceremony also employs a microblog live broadcast method for all the 2020 graduates, absent or not, to enjoy this different "cloud ceremony" in real time.
In order to create the satisfying graduation memory as much as possible, at 3:00 pm, the outdoor degree awarding ceremony, which was voluntarily signed up by deans and graduates of various schools, was held in Maker Square. The graduates dressed in their academic uniforms enjoyed their turning of the tassel ceremony and eagerly talked with the dean and teachers. The scene is surrounded by romantic and warm music, flowers, food, drinks, balloons, parasols... The intimate arrangement attracted teachers and students to take pictures and expressed their warm hearted regards to each other.
It is understood that in order to welcome the 2020 graduates back to university, WHUT has developed a detailed work schedule and emergency plan in line with the principle of health first and voluntary return in batches. The leaders have repeatedly visited the dormitory, canteen and other places to check the preparation, which required strict compliance with the standards of epidemic prevention, and every step was done meticulously to allow the graduates to “go home" safely. According to the working schedule, the 2020 graduates will return to WHUT in five batches from 17 to 22 June. The graduation and departure procedures are also carried out in accordance with the principles of “simplification and convenience " and "avoiding aggregation and rapid handling".
