2013 秋季迎新会 (Welcome BBQ Party for Fall 2013 students)

 

时维九月,序属金秋,2013年9月1日,我们密歇根州立大学华人学生学者联合会(CSSA)迎来了新一期的迎新野外烧烤(Barbecue)活动。

September 1st, 2013, in this splendid season, Our Chinese Students and Scholars Association at Michigan State University successfully held the 2013 fall welcome barbecue party for the new Chinese students and visiting scholars.

海内同相忆,天涯共此时。这一天,我们迎来了将近200位同学,大家欢聚兰辛湖畔,举杯、相识,交流、憧憬。CSSA的工作人员们为同学们准备了“中西合璧”的丰盛午餐——牛排、沙拉,春卷,面条还有美味的芒果奶昔。

If you’ve a friend afar who knows your heart, distance can’t keep you two apart. On this day, we welcomed about 200 students. We got together at Lake Lansing Park, meeting and chatting with each other. The staff members from CSSAMSU prepared very nice lunch for the new students in a combination of Chinese and Western styles – steaks, salads, spring rolls, noodles and delicious mango smoothie.

 

野餐会期间,CSSA主席张骏同学为大家简短致辞,欢迎新生们加入MSU的大家庭,并给同学提出了在美求学生活的一些恳切的建议。他强调,安全意识 是留学生活的重中之重,一个人跋涉异乡,总要面临各种挑战,各种诱惑,关键是要学会自我保护、独立思考。当然,他强调,在遇到困难的时候,不要忘了还有我 们CSSA这个大家庭,这里有来自前辈的经验,有来自同胞的关怀。

During the barbecue party, the President of CSSAMSU, Zhang Jun, gave a short speech to welcome all the coming students to join our big family, MSU, and offered some sincere suggestions and tips for studying in the U.S. He emphasized the importance of safety awareness. As an international student, we left our home country and travelled all the way here alone, and there must be a lot of challenges and temptations we would be confronted with. The key point is to learn self-protection and independent thinking ability. However, Jun also reminded students that do not forget CSSA, the family for you in the U.S., whenever facing difficulties. It is a supportive group where you may obtain valuable experience, as well as cares from seniors and friends.

野餐会是一次CSSA为欢迎新生准备的接风洗尘宴,同时我们也请到了一些曾在CSSA暑期接机活动中为新生提供过帮助的老生志愿们,借此机会向他们表达感谢。

This barbecue party is a welcome event for the new students and scholars. Meanwhile, we were glad to invite the volunteers who provided free pick-up service for the new students during the summer and would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere thanks to all of them.

野餐过后,同学们三两成群,被微微的凉风拉扯着在湖边的草地漫步,或者去看看碧波微抚的水岸,还有意犹未尽的同学在草地上兴致勃勃地玩起了“草地”排球。

我心安处便是家。让我们CSSA-MSU陪你一起,洗去一路的风尘,洗去旅途的劳顿,一起开启一段新的留学旅程吧。

After lunch, students either hanged out with couple of newly made friends walking around the green rippling lake, or played volleyball on the lawn enthusiastically.

CSSAMSU would always stay with all the Chinese students and scholars, starting a brand new journey of studying abroad.

 

 

大家新学期快乐!

Wish everyone a great new semester!
