On Sept 9, HUBU held 2019 opening ceremony for its freshers including 5001 undergraduate and 2167 graduate students at the main campus and College of General Education. The HUBU leadership, freshman military training leader, representatives of high school principal, alumni, faculty and staff, and leaders from relative departments attended the ceremony.
With the chorus of "I believe" and "I and my motherland", all freshmen waved national flags to show their vigor and patriotism, which created a warm atmosphere at the beginning of the ceremony.
"From this day on, we all have a common name -- Hubuer!" Shang Gang, party secretary of the Hubei University, delivered keynote speeches entitled “Hubuer! My HUBU friends” and “Hubuer! Starting from the General Education” at the ceremony to welcome 2019 freshmen.
In his speech, Shang Gang shared his understanding of HUBU spirits“Stronger Every Day, Smarter Every Step” and “Striving for Self-improvement, Overcoming Difficulties”. He encouraged new Hubuers to bear responsibilities and work together to create their own history.
Shang Gang also shared the profound history of HUBU’s talent cultivation reform and general education.

More than 20,000 students had successfully completed their one year of general education here. He hoped that all freshers devote themselves to be a person of sound personality, devoted learning and all-round development，and start their wonderful university life from the College of General Education.
