On the evening of December 29, 2018, 2019 HUST New Year Gala for Chinese and International Students (SICA Night) was held in the Lecture Hall of the School of Management. More than 550 Chinese and international students as well as staff gathered to celebrate the New Year. Prof. Chen Jianguo, the vice president of HUST, attended the gala.
There were three chapters of the performance: “BEAUTIFUL: THE DREAM SEASON”, ”COLORFUL: THE NATIONAL STYLE” and “WONDERFUL: THE NEW CHAPTER”. The gala started with a traditional costume show performed by students from Bangladesh, Nepal, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Mongolia and Pakistan. The ASMARADANA Dance by Indonesian students shocked the audience with its high coordination and unity. And the passion of HULA Dance by students from Tonga, Samoa and Fiji detonated the atmosphere.
Besides the international style performance, The Guqin (a traditional Chinese musical instrument) solo and Peking Opera entranced the audience. JASMINE, a famous Chinese song, performed by staff and students of School of Management, made everyone feel intoxicated. Finally, the gala came to an end with the song SHAPE OF THE WORLD by Chinese and international students.
2019 HUST New Year Gala for Chinese and International Students was sponsored by the School of International Education, HUST and organized by Students International Communication Association (SICA). Reprentatives of 20 administrative offices and teaching schools of the university as well as 10 companies including Wuhan FiberHome Technical Service Co., LTD, HKB International and China Unicom were invited to attend the gala. It is reported that 3626 international students from 153 countries studied at HUST in the year of 2018. The New Year Gala not only provided international students with a stage to demonstrate themselves and their own culture, but also promoted exchange and integration between Chinese and international students and therefore enhanced the international atmosphere of HUST.
