On April 14th, SCMU held its second annual Spring Day celebration. It split into an afternoon garden fair and evening gala, attracting over 3,000 participants from the university.

The garden fair featured 21 exhibition booths from various schools, showcasing professional programs through interactive displays and games. Popular favorites included the Schools of Marxism, Economics, Electronic Engineering’ booths with quizzes, handicrafts and performances highlighting ethnic culture and policies. “The booths really captured our specialties in engaging ways,” said Xiong Yongheng,  “and we could share the Party’s ethnic theories and strengthen the sense of community for the Chinese nation in a relaxed setting.”

As dusk fell, the celebration concluded with a 19-performance gala blending ethnic song, dance and poetry. The economics students’ mashup of viral hit “Climb That Mountain” and classic “As Plentiful As Snow” was a crowd favorite. “Seeing everyone sitting together, hand-in-hand like pomegranate seeds, really embodied the spirit of ethnic unity we hoped to create,” said the event organizer from the University Youth League Committee.
