Speech by Yang Bin
In his speech, Bin Yang, on behalf of the school, extended holiday greetings and New Year greetings to international students and scholars. He said that 2020 is an extremely special year. With the sudden outbreak of the new crown epidemic, Tsinghua teachers and students watched and helped each other to overcome the difficulties together, and handed in a qualified answer sheet in the epidemic examination.
Since the outbreak of the epidemic, the school has comprehensively promoted online teaching, actively carried out international exchanges and cooperation, and made contributions to the global fight against the epidemic and the development of world higher education.
Today, international students and scholars from all over the world have crossed the barriers of time and space, gathered to say goodbye to the old and welcome the new, presenting wonderful performances in the form of online and offline integration, demonstrating self-improvement and innovative spirit of every Tsinghua person. The school always cares about international students and scholars who cannot return to school due to the epidemic and looks forward to meeting everyone on campus again after the epidemic. In the new year, Tsinghua University will celebrate its 110th anniversary. On behalf of the school, Bin Yang expressed his heartfelt gratitude to all international students and scholars and hopes to build and witness a better Tsinghua with you.

Yan Bo, Deputy Secretary of the Youth League Committee, and Li Zhe, Deputy Director of the Art Museum, were the top 10 Chinese and foreign performers in social work in 2020. The students were awarded the "International Student Work Award" in recognition of their outstanding contributions to international student work and the construction of campus internationalization.
Under the influence of the new crown pneumonia epidemic, many international students were unable to return to school to participate in live performances. This evening party adopted the integration model of "online + offline" and presented it to the audience in two forms: video programs and live performances.
In the interweaving changes of light, shadow, and vocal music, in the interaction between the scene and the cloud, the feast of vision and hearing sets sail. Crossing the barriers of time and region, China and foreign countries meet, and the world is close at hand. What is projected on the big screen is not only the charm of the program itself but also the feelings of "the end of the world is at this time".
The opening song "Have It All" was completed by students from all over the world, bringing together global voices and showing the world's style
