On the 23rd of June, Class of 2017 International Student Farewell Party and the 6th International Student Art Troupe Performance of Xuzhou Medical University was held in the University Students’ club.
The event started at around 7pm with an emotional farewell speech from the Dean of School of International Education Prof. Sun, who described the moment as ‘bitter and sweet’ and wish them the best in their future endeavors , telling them that they will always be students of XZHMU just as XZHMU will always be their home.
The event was epic! A postgraduate student from 2015 batch sang 3 songs in 3 different languages; there were dances from students across 2014, 2015, 2016 batches and Pre-med ; 3 girls from 2012,2014 and 2015 batches sang Hindi songs; the famous fashion parade ; speeches from the graduating students ; songs from the girls of 2015 batch , a graduating student and a pre-med student; a drama from 2012 batch and a very emotional song from the graduating batch .
As the art troupe show drew to an end, cameras clicked all around the place. The dean was right, it was a bitter and sweet moment indeed and one that the class of 2017 (and perhaps all the international students present) will never forget.
