After the awarding ceremony, four student representatives respectively gave four presentations concerning their performances. Xia Yueting is an undergraduate student from the class of 2009. Her integrated development of learning, research and practice presented a wonderful example to every student. As a graduate student, Xin Yueyou’s experience of "based on local service, using an international perspective" greatly enlightened the graduate students on their future study and research prospects. Wei Ge, an undergraduate from the class of 2008, participated in and chaired several research projects at the provincial and school level. He presented a demonstration themed as "from practice to research", and shared his experiences and understandings. Shen Juang and Huang Fangfang’s experiences as exchange students to the Hong Kong Institute of Education also benefited the students.

Afterwards, Teacher Wang awarded the excellent groups, followed by the presentations of their performances. Both the Detian Primary school volunteer program and Mingchuan volunteer projects fully demonstrated the capacity of the College’s “Sunshine Volunteer" project. Meanwhile, domestic and overseas exchange programs have become a significant approach for the students to participate in advanced and internationalized education, and have also inspired students to think further about the ideas and acts of a "World-class University" and "Internationalization of Education".
After the cheerful session of "Embracing the New Year and sending blessings", this Commendation Conference came to an end with everyone singing the school anthem. The achievements in 2010 had become history, and a whole new year of hope and challenge was approaching us, which would be met with all our endeavors to create a brand new 2011.
