Dear new students,

Welcome to Zhejiang International Studies University. We have lots of exciting, challenging programs and projects in store for you in the next three or four years of your university life.

Entering a university is like opening another door in one’s life. It has in it, as an English writer says, “some flavor of the unknown, some sense of moving into a new moment, a new pattern of the human rigmarole.” Perhaps, some of you once complained, under the pressure of College Matriculation Exams, that you had been always driven by your teachers and parents, and deprived of your own initiative in self-development. From now on, the right of choosing is yours. You are free to decide, as a grown-up, what you will do in your future career, and how you will prepare for it in college. But freer choice means greater responsibility. Here in this adult world, you are expected to be responsible for every decision you make, every action you take, and every consequence that your behavior will lead to. You will learn to be on your own.

As a university president, I’d like to ask you, “What is a university?” Maybe you never bother yourself with that question. But if you examine the word, you’ll find that it is formed by the prefix “uni-” meaning “whole” and the Latin root “vers” meaning “turn”. Thus, a university can be understood as a place where, with the concerted efforts of everyone involved, you will turn into a whole person, with the heart and mind, sense and sensibility, thought and action, knowledge and competence, all ideally combined. For this miraculous transformation of yours, what we are committed to at ZISU is offering you quality academic programs and a learning environment that is aesthetically pleasing, academically stimulating, and culturally enriching. College is more than just classrooms and coursework. As such, I encourage you to participate in extracurricular activities and events on campus as well as student organizations. I am sure, there is something to fit the unique interests and abilities of every one of you at ZISU.

I am looking forward to those three or four years when you will be with us. You may think it a plenty of time, yet it is short if calculated this way: Though four years total 1460 days, minus 4 winter vacations and 4 summer ones which approximately amount to 344 days, and minus 417 weekend days and 24 national holidays, you will have only 675 full days left. Let’s set aside 10 hours each day for meals and sleep, then how many days, or hours, will remain at your disposal for coursework and study? Only 393.75 days, or 9450 hours! Is that stark calculation shocking enough to knock you into a full awareness of the cruel brevity of time? I hope it is. So, remember this proverb, “Time and tide wait for no man,” and make full use of those precious college years ahead of you. Set your goals high, but start from the most fundamental, and, with a conscientious attitude and hardworking habit, you will surely realize your dream for success, win the proud smiles on your parents’ face, and live up to what our country expects us.

See you on September 14th, 2013!

With best wishes,

Hong Gang

President of ZISU

 

亲爱的2013级新同学,

 

    欢迎来到浙江外国语大学。我们有很多令人激动的、具有挑战性的项目,将在未来三到四年的大学生活中进行。

    进入大学就像打开人生中的另一扇门。如今它就在这。正如一个英语作家说,“一些未知的情趣,某种进入新的时刻的,一个人类繁琐手续的新形式。也许,你们中的一些人曾经抱怨,在高考的压力下,你一直总是被你的老师和家长所驱动,被夺去了发展自己的主动性。从现在开始,选择权就是你的了。作为一个成年人,你可以自由决定,你将如何准备在大学,在你未来的职业生涯中你有什么要做。但更自由的选择意味着更大的责任。在这个大人的世界里,你将对你每一个的决定、你的每一个动作和每一个结果负责,你必须学会自己学习。

    作为一个大学校长,我想问你,“什么是大学?“也许你永远不会自己去想这个问题。但如果你仔细看一下这个词,你会发现它是由前缀“uni -”意思是整体和拉丁文的词根“vers”意思是转向。因此,大学可以被理解为一个地方,在双方共同努力下,人人都参与,你会变成一个完整的人,,理智与情感,思想和行动、知识和能力,所有的理想组合。对于你的这个奇迹般的转变,我们致力于在浙江外国语学院为你提供一个优质的学术项目和学习的环境,它是美秒的,在学术上刺激的,和文化上有丰富内涵的。大学不仅仅只有学习。因此,我鼓励你参加课外活动和校园文化活动以及学生组织。我相信,这里总有一些适合独一无二的你。

    我期待你与我们一起度过的这三或四年的时光,你可能认为这是一段很漫长的时间,但它其实是很短暂的,如果这样计算:四年总1460,减去4个寒假和4个暑假的时间大约344,减去417天的周末和24天国家法定假日,你只有675天左右。让我们每天留出10小时吃饭和睡觉,然后有多少天或小时,你会留给作业和学习?只有393.75,9450小时!,斯塔克计算的震惊足以让你完整的认识到时间的残酷和短暂!所以,记住这个谚语,“岁月不饶人”,并充分利用这些宝贵的大学时光你的前面,将你的目标定的很高,但从最基本的开始,并以一个认真的态度和勤奋的习惯,你一定会实现你的梦想的成功,赢得你父母的脸上骄傲的微笑,不辜负国家对我们的期望。

与你不见不散

谨此,

 洪岗

浙江外国语学院院长
