As the early autumn breeze wafted through WMU, the passion of the campus could not be contained. At this emotional moment, new friends with longings in their eyes and ardent volunteers with busyness in their moves are the best interpretation of youth.
Vol.1 The First Photograph at Wenzhou Medical University
We used to be strangers when entering the campus and have become close friends as the exquisite sceneries narrowed the distance between us. Let the photograph witness our friendship.
Vol.2 Solicitude of the University
“To study medicine, be ready to work hard.”
“Classmates should take care of each other.”
“One should lay more emphasis on improving comprehensive quality and developing in an all-round way.”
“We will devote ourselves to solving your difficulties.”
The university leaders visited the freshmen’s dormitories and cordially asked about their feelings about entering campus. They encouraged the students to adapt to their new life at WMU as soon as possible, study hard, and make progress every day
Vol.3 “A Touch of Beautiful Red” to Orient the Freshmen
When you stand at an unfamiliar intersection with huge packs, don’t worry, call for the seniors, and we’re a family.
Volunteers in red moved around the campus in a hurry.
“The volunteers are so nice.”
“The sceneries are remarkable, and the volunteers are enthusiastic.”
The freshman orientation received great admiration from the first-year students.
Vol.4 Three-second Rapid Registration
The new mode of “one-stop online registration and one-second facial recognition check-in” facilitated the enrollment procedure.
Along the way were tents for parents to rest and have a cup of tea, providing shelter from the summer heat.
Vol.5 New Patterns of Freshman Orientations of the Schools
All schools were well prepared and hosted warm and unique freshman orientations.
The School of Pharmaceutical Sciences specially organized a team of 12 first-year veteran students to constantly provide services such as maintaining order, carrying luggage, and consulting for their new schoolmates. Additionally, the dormitories were renovated into four types of show homes with professional characteristics in advance.
The Alberta Institute not only took the first-year students around the campus online in advance, but also mobilized all the freshmen to conduct intensive training for the IELTS test. Besides, freshmen were entered in a lucky draw for medicine-related cultural and creative products and all kinds of surprising packages. There was also a second-hand items area where seniors provided old textbooks to freshmen for free.
The School of the 2nd Clinical Medical Sciences conducted a series of activities to welcome freshmen. Every freshman came to school with a letter to their future self and delivered their dreams in the “Youth Dreams Post Office” in the residence hall. The school prepared each freshman a welcome package containing a customized postcard, a guide for freshmen, and so on. In addition, the academy specially held a birthday party for the freshmen who had birthdays in this month.
The School of Nursing held its first meeting even before the registration. The counselor conducted the first-grade conference online early to handle queries. The seniors instructed freshmen without reservation, each offering a card to give suggestions, which helped the freshmen adjust to college life more rapidly and efficiently. Moreover, on the registration day, the academy prepared big gifts for all freshmen.
The School of Stomatology meticulously prepared their special gifts consisting of customized canvas bags, elaborately designed fans, bookmarkers, and masks.
The School of Public Health & Management hosted a warm birthday party for the freshmen who were born on 1st September.
