New Year parties play an integral role in both western and eastern cultures. These events provide space to meet friends, and reflect upon our professional and personal life, to celebrate our achievements and learn from our mistakes. It is the time for setting goals and vision for the year to come.

PHBS Dean Hai Wen addresses on the New Year Party
Dean Hai reminded us that year 2019 marked three important anniversaries - 100 years from May Fourth Movement, the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China and the 15th anniversary of PHBS. After recalling the prosperous 2019, Dean Hai Wen remarked, " We still need to persevere and pursue excellence in order to forge ahead in the future." He also encouraged students to be more diligent, aim for high and develop a sense of responsibility and obligation to their country and the world.

When the dinner started, students and professors wished Happy New Year to each other. The event was a perfect opportunity for the first-year students to socialize with classmates and meet their seniors. And faculty could get to know their students in an informal setting.

The 2020 New Year Party left us with a good feeling of time well-spent with our friends, colleagues and other members of PHBS community. I wish we all take this feeling to 2020 and start the new decade with a smile on our faces, ready to face any challenge and inner capacity for bringing the best of us to the world.
