Students witnessed the awarding presentation expressed that they felt greatly inspired and would study more diligently and make the best of their time in SMU.

The international students also prepared a variety of talent shows and performances, including dancing, singing and poem recitation. Shi Rui from Nepal recited a piece of Song Ci “Red All Over the River-Bristle with Anger” (written by Chinese national hero Yue Fei in the Southern Song Dynasty (1127-1279)). The dance of “Song Xian” (Praise for Confucius) was performed by students from Panama, Turkmenistan, Congo and other countries.

They  promoted the understanding and communication between China and foreign cultures and helped push the party to the climax. The party ended with a medley of Chinese and English songs performed by students from the SMU-RMU Program.
