Secretary of the Party Committee of HQU, Guan Yifan, and President of HQU, Xu Xipeng, delivered a speech respectively on both campuses. They expressed that 2018 was the year of HQU's development and achievement, which marked the steady progress of HQU in building itself a high-level university. They hoped that in the new year all the faculty and students will move forward together to turn over a new leaf for HQU.


At the dinner, the lucky money (also called Hongbao in Chinese signifying prosperity and happiness) is given by the university leaders to the students.
