Candlelight Ceremony

Just like the opening ceremony, the Candlelight Ceremony is a formal welcoming ceremony for the freshmen. It is, however, more vivid, and gets the freshmen into the Sias spirit. It also increases a freshman's awareness of what being at Sias is about, and gives them memories to cherish for a lifetime.

 

 

 

The purpose of the candlelight vigil is to carry on the spirit and culture of Sias. The main form is as follows:

1.The direct lighting of the torch which symbolizes the SIAS spirit. Simultaneously, a senior student takes over the torch, runs around the drill ground and passes the torch to a junior student.

2.Four torch bearers cluster around the torch and start to light the candle which is in the hand of leaders, teachers, foreign teachers and guests. Then, teachers and senior students gather around with freshmen and light the candle in their hands one by one, which symbolizes the big family of SIAS giving their love and esteem to new members.

3.The chorus group which consists of students and teachers in SIAS are prepared on the stage. When all candles have been lighted, the chorus group starts to sing and all the students and teachers under the stage will swing the candle lightly with the music and gradually join in singing.

4.After chorus group singing, leader, guest, foreign teacher representative and student representative make brief speech in turn.

5.Start playing American music game.

6.Setting off fireworks.

 

The candlelight ceremony closes the distance between students and teachers, lets freshmen become better integrated in SIAS International University. The candlelight lets everyone feel warm and clearly hear the heartbeat in everyone's heart. The candlelight lets everyone feel quite close, close to our leaders and teachers, close to SIAS.
