Southern University of Science and Technology (China) SUSTech students’ association open day kicks off

Besides their academic studies, one of the key aspects to the growth of students and their talents in any top university is their participation in various activities and roles outside of the classroom.

This is no different at the Southern University of Science and Technology (SUSTech), which encourages all its students to participate in extracurricular activities as it’s important for their development and well-being.

The University recently held its annual Students’ Association Open Day where the various student-run associations, clubs, and societies held an assortment of events to welcome newcomers and like-minded people to meet and share in their respective passions.

The occasion attracted many students to take part in the recreation activities organized by the various student associations and clubs. They set up booths one after another, providing a platform for faculty members and students to sample and learn more about their clubs at their stalls.

For those in attendance, they were treated to some creative and innovative technologies on display. They were able to fly drones, participate in games that included robots, and do some popular science activities.

At the booth for the Association of Science Fiction, Haoyang QIN answered many questions related to science fiction works. “I love science fiction, and it helps to exercise my imagination and scientific innovation ability,” he added.

Several clubs and associations were also on display for students to explore their artistic and cultural talents. This included booths on calligraphy, painting, music, drama, reading, writing, poetry, etc.

Some members dressed in Hanfu, which is a historical type of Han Chinese clothing, while others played the Guqin, a seven-stringed Chinese musical instrument.

Zitong FENG, one of the new students to explore these associations, said, “I never participated in such interesting and exciting activities when I was in high school, so I am very enthusiastic about exploring many of the booths on display here today. I look forward to having more interesting experiences at SUSTech in the future”.
