On September 3, over 3,800 new undergraduate students from the Class of 2019 arrived on the beautiful campus of Beihang University to start the new chapter of their lives.
The on-site registration this year was held at both Xueyuanlu and Shahe campuses. Early in the morning, the freshmen excitedly arrived at the designated places successively. Each department, college and school set up their own booths there to provide guidance for these freshmen to finish their registration. With the help of volunteers and their elder classmates, the freshmen and their parents experienced the convenient registration process and felt the warm welcome of the university.
Beihang Party Committee Secretary Cao Shumin, President Xu Huibin, Vice Presidents Liu Shuchun and Huang Haijun, Deputy Party Secretary Zhao Gang, and other leaders were present at the registration occasions to greet the freshmen, and also visited student dormitories and canteen. In the afternoon, freshmen’s parents meeting was held at the two campuses respectively.
Elaborate preparation has been done for the new undergraduates this year, including making the E-cards with RMB 100 yuan deposits in advance, carrying out all-round renovation in canteen, opening “Greening Channel” for students whose families are financially difficult, enabling face-scanning technology for registration, etc.
During the event, various activities were also held to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People's Republic of China at both campuses.
On August 31, before the official registration, the freshman talent training camp which included various preparatory activities such as keynote speeches and debate competition to help the freshmen better adapt to the new life in Beihang was opened for 400 freshmen who registered voluntarily and were screened rigorously.
Beihang has enrolled 3,815 undergraduate students this year. Among them, 1,453 students were enrolled in the Experimental Class of Engineering (Aeronautics and Astronautics), 809 in the Experimental Class of Engineering (Informatics), 455 in the Experimental Class of Science, and 260 in the Experimental Class of Social Sciences.
