Good morning, Ladies and Gentlemen,
Before the speech, I would like to share a famous experiment with you. Two big mice were put into one vessel which was filled with water. They began to struggle when they were aware of danger. But finally their lives just lasted 8 minutes. After that, another two joined the same experiment but this time a springboard was given to help them get out of water. Five days later, the two experienced big mice were put into the same experiment. A miracle came into being. Can you guess it? Without the spring board, they survived 24 minutes, three times as many as the first time.
Have you found the difference between the two groups? Just one thing is that the latter has owned a kind of spiritual strength ---hope.
People can lose many things except hope. One animal with hope is more respectable than one person with hopelessness. Therefore, everyone should be to hope in the life. We should have our goals, dreams, and beliefs together with the endless hope. Hope is light; hope is dawn; hope is the rising sun. Hope endows us with courage, confidence and power. Please think about the Red Army men and the last group of people rescued during earthquakes. Why can they adhere to the end? Because they believed in hope. It is hope that nurtures persistence; it is hope that creates miracles one by one.
Now, please look at this. What's this? I know all of you can give me a correct answer. Yes, it is a leaf. Have you ever thought more about it? Do you believe it can save a life? I am afraid most of you do not believe it. However, it really saved one young lady. The story happened in one of O.Henry's works. One patient was told that her disease was becoming more and more serious. So she lost heart to live. And she just lived commonly and hopelessly to await death together with a withered tree outside her window. Because she thought when the last leaf fell, her life would go to the end. But after a very long time, she found the last leaf was still green and fresh in the tree and she was also alive. Afterwards, she was told that the last leaf was just painted by a skilled painter on the window which was a gloss. At that time, she exceedingly regreted her foregone view.
So ladies and gentlemen, please give a leaf to yourselves. With a piece of leaf at hand, you will find life glows with glory; With a gleam of hope in mind, you will find everything goes with smoothness. To hope, to smooth away all the difficulties, to take every obstacle in stride. You are a shinning star. Thank you very much!
First I must say the campus life is really different from what I have experienced in high school.For instance，I used to lean upon my dormitory teache
r to wake me up on time.But now I have to set several alarm clocks to make myself could hear them in the morning otherwise I would miss my class.And then even worse there would be nobody remind me
except my teacher!So the differences are everywhere and I could easily find them.The change of life is great and it’s wonderful:I have more time of my own and the rights to decide how I live.
My campus activities are rich and colorful.Learning English has become a habit to me cause I plan to study abroad in next few years.Playing Guzheng is my favorite activity.I have kept on practising it since I was a little girl and I wish to win more competitions in my campus life.
Our university has the first level equipments and the most experienced teachers，also has the best students(laugh).I consider it to be a honor that I’ve got a chance to study here and I sincerely hope that we could live wonderful lives in our campus!
I have been in University for about one year. During my stay here, I came to realize that university life is like drinking coke. We experience all tastes of life here, sour, sweet, bitter and hot.
I am from Province, which is far away from here. I often miss my Mum, friends, and relatives in my hometown. However, I can't see them very often. So loneliness always keeps me company. I am sad that I can't be there with them.
Lucky for me, life in university is rich and colorful. With more free time,we can do many more things besides study, such as joining
societies clubs, and taking part-time jobs. Such activities not only make our life more colorful, but also help us improve all kinds of skills. The university is a society miniature, what we learn here will benefit our future life.
Our path in life will not always be smooth. Setbacks can't be avoided. Failing an important exam, break up with boy or girl friend, or refused by a promising company, such setbacks are likely to get us down. Sometimes we fell so frustrated that we even burst into tears. Drinkin coke is wonderful, despite the undesirble consequent hiccups. It's bitter, sour and peppery, but also sweet. And you'll even feel excited after gulping down a glass. A college experience is part of growing up. We cry, smile, fall in love, get hurt, leave, learn and then we become a better person.
University life is like drinking coke. I'm experiencing it. And I know, I enjoy it!
