On February 7th, the twenty-eighth day of the twelfth lunar month, the university’s gathering for students staying on campus during the Spring Festival was held. The event saw the presence of over 300 participants, including the Party Secretary Bian Jing, Vice President Li Hongyan, Deputy Party Secretary and Vice President Song Fajun, heads of relevant functional departments, leaders from various schools, faculty representatives, and all students remaining on campus, gathering joyfully to welcome the 2024 Lunar New Year.

The third and fourth student cafeterias were festooned with lights and decorations, creating a lively and festive atmosphere. Red lanterns, electronic firecrackers, beautiful Chinese knots, and window decorations featuring the character “Fu” for fortune all contributed to the joyous and harmonious festival vibe, filling the early spring campus with warmth and coziness. Party Secretary Bian Jing extended New Year greetings and well-wishes to all faculty and students, highlighting the university’s flourishing development, steady improvement in educational quality, optimization of academic disciplines, fruitful research innovations, enhanced talent training, and increased social service capabilities over the past year. He commended the collective efforts of the SCMU community, especially during the recent rare ice and snow disaster in Wuhan, where the campus united to ensure safety and warmth, embodying the university's motto.
