2022 Law School Graduation Ceremony, Graduation Blessings during the Epidemic
The 2022 Law School Graduation Ceremony was held on June 11th and June 18th in the lecture hall on the third floor of the General Building. Considering the epidemic situation and process arrangements, the ceremony was held in two days and three sessions. There were 33 graduates on June 11th, and 99 graduates and more than 100 parents on June 18th. Many teachers, graduates and students participated in the grand event. During the commencement, the professor turned the tassels for graduates. The meaning of turning of the tassel represents the maturity of rice or wheat, which symbolizes that the graduates have achieved what they have learned. The turning of the tassel ceremony conveys the teacher's affirmation of the graduates' efforts in the past and the blessing of entering the next stage.
In his speech at the ceremony, Dean Cheng-Hsien Hsu mentioned that the graduation ceremony that was originally expected to be held was cancelled due to the epidemic. After careful evaluation and discussion with faculty, he did his best to reserve the turning of the tassel part in the ceremony, and thanked the administrative team for their support and cooperation with the law faculty. Active participation enabled this hard-won ceremony to be held smoothly, which is also the biggest gift given by the Law School to this year's graduates. At the same time, Dean Hsu also shared with the British writer Virginia Woolf's article: In God's eyes, there is no greater reward for those who love reading than people who love reading for a lifetime. He encourages graduates to find a lifelong interest as soon as possible; and when interviewed by Fengmao Li, honorary chair professor of the Institute of Religious Studies of our school The mention of "balance is the happiest thing in life" echoes the description of Professor Christenson of Harvard Business School. The smoothness of a circus clown tossing and catching a ball is used as a metaphor for the importance of a balanced life value, and the "balanced life talent" is a happy life," encouraged the graduates.
At this ceremony, a TV wall was placed outside the venue to broadcast the blessings given by teachers to graduates through videos:

During the epidemic, Yu-Qing Liu, a graduate, said: "Things that are lost and found are the most beautiful things. I am really grateful to have the turning of the tassel ceremony this year!
