亚澳商学院院庆十周年在校生代表郭政达发言

           

亚澳商学院国际经济与贸易专业2007级在校生

President Cheng, Honorable Guests, Ladies and Gentlemen,

People say that university is for the cultivation of talents, and I have indeed been deeply edified by the cultivation of Liaoning University. The life at AABC has helped me learn many important things that I can benefit from for the rest of my life. Today, along with the merriment of AABC’s tenth birthday, I would like to share one of them with everybody, which is the realization that ‘college is a start, not and end’.

The moment I stepped into the campus of Liaoning University on the enrollment day, I instantly fell in love with this place. Being stuck in a stingy high school yard for many years, I was astonished by the beauty and the size of our campus. Frankly speaking, it was the first time I’ve stepped into a campus that I couldn’t see the end. Moreover, the friendliness of new schoolmates and the kindness of elder students made me feel new but familiar, excited but warm. On that particular day, I made a decision, which was to make my university life a new beginning of my life.

I felt kind of lucky in my new life, because I have made excellent new friends, met with amazing new teachers, and, I can even start a new life with another language! With all these privileges, I began the process of realizing my ideal college life, which is being a top student, starting a rock band, and getting a part-time job. For about 10 months, other than attending to classes during week days, I had to teach English at a language school from 10:30 in the morning to 7:10 in the evening on weekends. Besides this, I also needed to spend some regular time with my band and prepare for a variety of shows. To tell the truth, it wasn’t easy trying to accomplish three tasks together, but what is easy in life anyway? I guess my counselor recognized my ability of enduring strain; I was honored to be recommended as a volunteer of 2008 Beijing Olympic Games at the Bird’s Nest and was granted as ‘the most vigorous volunteer’ by the Provincial Youth League Committee at the end of the services.

I have always been grateful for the precious opportunities in my new life. Experiences have helped me learn that opportunity is a treasure, like any other treasure, it will never be simply ‘given’. People have to seek for it, instead of waiting, and by the time it comes, it will only be offered to the ones who are ready. Like the French chemist Louis Pasteur has said, ‘Fortune favors the prepared mind’. The four-year college life, from another perspective, is an opportunity to start over and it will reward those who are prepared. Successfully entering a college is indeed a remarkable achievement of a person’s life, but it is never the final achievement. Each step taken is the foundation for the next, if we can regard college as a new beginning and have the courage to start over and seize the valuable chances, there will be no stopping us!

In the end, though it may be childish, I would like to quote from Master Wu Gui in the cartoon Kong Fu Panda, ‘Yesterday is history, tomorrow is mystery, today is a gift and that is why it’s called present’. If I remembered correctly, there is a clip board on the second floor of Ze Xing Building that says, ‘Quality is a journey, not a destination’. Well, my friend, college is the same.

 

尊敬的程校长、各位来宾、老师、朋友们:
    你们好!

    人们常说大学是培养人才的地方,辽宁大学对我的培养过程的确让我深受启发。在亚澳的生活让我学到了很多可以受益终生的东西。今天,在亚澳商学院十年生日的欢乐气氛下,我想和大家分享其中的一个,是我意识到了“大学是一个起点,而不是终点”。

    在迈进辽宁大学的第一天,我就爱上了这个地方。也许是在高中的小校园里待时间长了,我被辽大校园的美丽与宏伟所震惊了,我当时还是第一次踏进一个看不见尽头的校园。除此之外,新同学的友好加上学长们的热情让我感觉陌生中带着亲切、兴奋中带着温馨。在那一天,我做了一个决定,要把大学作为人生新的起点。

    新的生活让我感到很幸运,因为我结识了出色的新同学,优秀的新老师,甚至可以用另外一种语言开始新生活!有了这些优越条件,我开始把心中理想的大学生活转化为现实:做一名好学生,组建个摇滚乐队,再找一份兼职工作。能有连续十个月,我除了每天上课以外,每周末还要去语言学校教英语,从早上10:30直到晚上7:10。另外,因为要出席很多演出,时常和乐队排练也是必不可少的。说实话,同时做三件事真的不容易,不过话说回来,人生中又有哪件事是容易的呢?也许辅导员看出了我忍受劳累的能力,我很荣幸的被推荐成为2008北京奥运会在鸟巢的志愿者,并在服务结束时得到了团省委授予的“最具活力志愿者”称号。

    我一直对新生活中的宝贵机遇心存感激。经验让我懂得了,机会是一种宝藏。就像其他的宝藏,它不会被简单的给予;人们需要去寻找,而不是等待。并且当机会来临时,只有准备好的人才能得到它。正如法国化学家路易·巴斯德所说:“机遇只偏爱有准备的头脑”。四年的大学生活,从某种角度讲,就是一个重新开始的机会,准备好的人将受到奖赏。成功的考取大学固然是人生一个重要的成就,但这并不是最终的成就。每一个已经迈出的步伐,都是下一步的基础,如果我们能把大学当做一个新的起点并敢于把握机遇,那我们的前途将不可限量!

    在最后,即便有些幼稚,我想引用卡通片功夫熊猫中乌龟大师的一句话:“昨天已经过去,明天还未到来,而今天是个礼物,所以它叫做现在。”如果我记得没错,则行楼二楼有一个标牌写着“追求质量是没有终点的旅程”。朋友们,大学也是如此。
