At the opening ceremony, the attractive program “Dreamcatcher” brought by the Campus Harmonica Association led us into the retrospect of the great rejuvenation of Chinese history. Then the Campus Folk Orchestra showed the flute solo named “Village Scenery” with fair-sounding melody and poetic imagery. Next, the audience burst into peals of laughter for the clapper talk performed by Campus Cross Talk Club. With no doubt that the dragon dance performance was the climax of ceremony. The performance won loud cheers and rounds of applause. What’s more, there were a series of interactive sessions organized by different student associations, such as guessing riddles, making postcards and bookmarks, practicing calligraphy, trying the ancient makeup and taking beautiful pictures. The whole opening ceremony is a combination of classical culture and modern life and visitors were immersed in a refreshing feast of traditional culture.
