She inherited the undertaking of sports from her father, and she has “run for 30 years on and on”, holding this baton in her hand. Today, the baton of sports has been handed over to the graduates. She wished the graduates could do a really good job in their turn! In the future, when facing adversity or prosperity, the graduates should keep shining as much as they can like the brightest star in the night sky, remember the pains and also remember to constantly unleash their glow and wisdom, seize trends and opportunities, and work hard with their utmost strength!

Kang Zixin from the School of Sports Medicine gave a speech on behalf of the class of 2023 bachelor graduates. She said that she still remembers the earliest days of entering the university, when everyone, excited and somewhat uneasy, visioned for all the possibilities of the future. Now standing at the intersection of graduation and looking back, they have been exploring all the way and working so hard to make self-improvement. As graduates who are setting off to embrace their careers, they should cultivate profound love for their family and country, foster an enterprising personality, and aim to be excellent young adults in the new era who are aspiring in work, daring to take responsibility, and willing to struggle and endure hardships. Living up to the times and their youth, the graduates should keep to their natural kindness and stride forward to pursue their dreams, so that their youth would bloom brilliantly in the great undertaking of building a modern socialist country in an all-round way.

Lin Shuting from the School of Economics and Management shared her feelings and experiences of studying and living in WHSU on behalf of the class of 2023 master graduates. She said that the end of her school days is not the end of her study. The students of WHSU are bound to be enthusiastic about life and courageous to make a new start. Holding the alumni cards in hand,the graduates should stick to the fighting spirit and belief of WHSU in work or in further studies, try their best to bring glory to what they love with full enthusiasm, and seek opportunities in challenging adventures.

Zhang Yi, an alumnus of the class of 2008, and winner of titles including Advanced Worker of the National Culture and Tourism System, "Advanced Individual" and "Outstanding Guide" of the Publicity Department of the Communist Party of China, and "Guide with Five Merits" of the Ministry of Culture and Tourism, spoke on behalf of the alumni. She recalled her unforgettable days in WHSU, and shared her work experience as a museum guide. In the four years of studying in the university, she not only laid a solid professional foundation, learned a lot from the earnest instructions of the teachers, and gained the precious friendship with classmates, but also cultivated traits that continue to nurture her life. WHSU's motto of "Fair Play, Courage, Honesty, Perseverance, Critical Thinking and Acting" drives her forward as a continuous source of spiritual strength. The sportsmanship of being aggressive and the teamwork capability also help her grow rapidly in both mindset and actual competence. She hoped the graduates, in whatever positions of their future career, to implement the connotation of the motto with practical actions.
