On October 26, a fun-filled carnival marking the 67th anniversary of Beihang University enlivened the two campuses of the university. More than 100 carnival booths hosted by over 30 schools or organizations were set up at the open area in front of Beijing Air and Space Museum on Xueyuanlu Campus, as well as at the crossroads to student dormitories on Shahe Campus.

2019 marks not only the 67th anniversary of Beihang University, but also the 70th anniversary of the founding of the People’s Republic of China. On October 1, 2019, China’s National Day, around 4,000 Beihang students and faculty members marched through Tian’anmen Square as part of the civilian parade. To relive the glorious moment, display panels decorated with elements of China’s National Day parade were placed at the venue.

Performances were staged at 10 a.m. Students who are members of military reserve forces, Beihang choirs and students from different student organizations or schools put on splendid shows at the Xueyuanlu Campus, while tap dance, saxophone solo, band show, magic show and dombra playing were performed at the Shahe campus.

Besides, by participating in various activities, students expressed their wishes to Beihang in forms of writing down congratulatory notes, playing interactive games, taking photos with iconic buildings of the university and so on.
The carnival not only helps students gain a better understanding of the campus culture of Beihang, but also enhances students’ sense of belonging to the university.
