Nucleic acid testing, group photos, celebrating birthdays, chatting... a heartwarming “blockbuster” was staged at " No. 1037 Forest, Luoyu Road " on September 2nd, HUST’s freshman registration day.

Shao Xinyu, the Chair of the University Committee and Li Yuanyuan, the university president went to the welcoming site to meet with the new students.

In his communication with the students, Shao Xinyu urged the students to cherish the time to study, and inherit the fine traditions, to not only "learn in HUST", but to "achieve in HUST", and strive to become a well-rounded HUSTer. Li Yuanyuan expressed that he hoped that everyone will adapt to campus life as soon as possible, find the goals for their new stage of life, learn professional knowledge, and lay a solid foundation for achieving a brilliant life at the "Most Beautiful Forest University". Parents were also invited to visit the university after the epidemic.
