It is graduation time for more than 10,000 Jinan University students as the 2020 spring semester comes to a close. JNU’s graduates have reached the pinnacle of their academic studies and are ready to move into the next chapter of their lives. Some will devote themselves to academic studies; others will use their knowledge and skills to make a difference in society and direct the evolution inspired by its challenges.
Xian Yeming, an undergraduate in the 2016 class in the Electronic and Information Engineering Department of the College of Information Science and Technology, makes self-inspiration his motto. Thanks to his passion for scientific research, he has achieved one brilliant result after another: publishing three Class A1 SCI papers as first author, receiving key funded projects of the Climbing Plan, applying for six national patents and winning many first prizes in science and technology competitions.
Xian has been admitted to the research group of Prof. Yan Yanfa, an international authority on semiconductor materials and devices at the University of Toledo in Ohio, and will continue to explore scientific research. No matter how the outside world changes, he said, I think it is most important to cherish each moment so as to broaden the road to the future.”
Today is the first day, and I have to say that the Canton Tower is quite striking up close, wrote Liang Diqi, a new Tencent employee, on her WeChat Moments. To accumulate practical experience, she started her internship in her freshman year. In her four years as an undergraduate and two as a postgraduate, she did many internships and tried different jobs. Liang believes these experiences are valuable wealth that have not only given her a clear idea of her future but also improved her abilities.
Chow Junheng, a member of the 2016 financial management class in the JNU's Management School, is truly a volunteer enthusiast. In four years of college, he never missed volunteering yearly to teach in Yihai Elementary School, an activity initiated by JNU's Youth Volunteer Association. Two years in a row, he helped rural pupils as part of JNU students’ voluntary teaching summer vacation program. He has performed 390 hours in his college life, according to the records of i’zhiyuan.com, a platform for managing volunteer work.

Chow said he would like to continue volunteering after stepping into work life, if time permits. The nourishment he both gives and receives in the care and sense of responsibility involved in his volunteer experience will drive him for many years yet to come.
Like millions of others, Yao Shuxin, a member of the 2016 class in the College of Chinese Language and Culture, has decided to take the postgraduate entrance exam. She has selected news and broadcasting as the field she would like to dive into for her master's degree -- a goal she set four years ago as a freshman. This uncharted field has lured me for a long time, she admits. I'm determined to study news and broadcasting at JNU and grasp the chance I missed four years ago to come closer to my dream.
