On 8: 00 AM July 2, the 2020 commencement ceremony of Xi'an Jiaotong University was held in Xingqing Campus. Teacher representatives, alumni representatives and more than 7000 graduates gathered here or online to witness this meaningful moment.
Before the 2020 graduation ceremony, all the students stood up to welcome the scepter.
In the witness of the scepter, the graduates took their degrees from the headmaster. Scepter is the symbol of academic degree and the highest power of the university, carrying the spirit and culture of XAJU. We believe that all graduates feel an unprecedented sense of responsibility and mission at this moment.
At the top of the scepter is the hollowed-out emblem, the base of which is peach and plum blossoms, dotted with rubies.
Peach and plum symbolize educating people.
Ruby not only has magnificent, clear, gorgeous posture, but also symbolizes passion.
After more than 100 years of school history, XAJU has trained countless talents all over the world.
At this moment, it's tempt to recall that 124 years ago, Sheng Xuanhuai founded Nanyang Public School, the predecessor of Jiaotong University, at a time of national crisis, opening up the forerunner of China's new education.
In 1956, Jiaotong University responded to the call of the government to move from Shanghai to Xi'an and take root in the west. The spirit of moving westward with the overall situation in mind, selfless dedication, carrying forward tradition and working hard has become the spiritual blood of Jiaotong University and the immutable temperament of Xi'an Jiaotong University.
Time flies. Jiaotong University batchs of outstanding students in a variety of industries, constantly make contribution with their own wisdom and strength. Every student in Jiaotong University glows. They work hard to fill in the fields of 3D manufacturing, big data, artificial intelligence, national defense, aerospace and so on.
"Diligent, dutiful, resolute, loyal and forgiving" is the motto that every Jiaotong University student will never forget.
The affection for home and country kindled in the heart of the oath at the graduation ceremony is the soul and responsibility of Jiaotong University students.
What is the pillar of society?
Today Jiaotong University gave all the students an answer: Keep our mission in mind and forge ahead!
On parting, students once again sang the song of Xi'an Jiaotong University, "For the Light of the World". May the students forever young and chase their dreams boldly!
