On behalf of SJTU, Mr. Zhang Ansheng sent his best wishes to the students who stayed on campus during the Spring Festival. He said that Shanghai Jiao Tong University, a big family of students, cared about every student staying on campus due to various reasons such as long distance, academic programs, scientific research tasks, and will do a good job in safeguarding their wellbeing in all aspects. The students were expected to keep a sunny, cheerful and positive mindset to welcome the upcoming Spring Festival. They were also expected to cherish this period of time to make full use of the library, laboratory and other resources to read more and learn more. Finally, students were expected to maintain good health and fitness, pay attention to the dormitory electricity and fire safety. Zhang Ansheng wished them all a peaceful and warm Spring Festival holiday, sending them red scarves and gift bags.

Together teachers and students made dumplings, wrote couplets and lucky words. The atmosphere was warm and peaceful, and the unique charm of traditional Chinese culture and the warmth of traditional Chinese festivity was fully felt.


With vigor and ease, teachers and students swung the writing brush to put down some Chinese New Year blessings on the red paper.
