10X Student’s radiant face at the Opening Ceremony of Course 24 - 2018

(Admission Office – Van Lang, October 10th, 2018 ) – The morning of Oct 10th, 2018 has left an unforgettable mark in the development history of Van Lang University: The Opening Ceremony to welcome the students of course 24, the first students of the 10X young, confident and dynamic generation.

The Opening Ceremony, which is an annual event of Van Lang University to welcome new students, is highly anticipated by the whole university. The Opening Ceremony of Course 24 - 2018 has a lot of special markings: from the venue to the main characters.

Van Lang University has chosen Hoa Lu Stadium (No. 2 Dinh Tien Hoang Street, Da Kao Ward, District 1, HCMC) to hold the course 24 welcoming ceremony. The students were born in 2000 and are the first representatives of the 10X generation. The integration of COURSE 24 into the communal roof of Van Lang University becomes the most special remark on the opening ceremony day. The freshness of the 10X students is a great motivation for VLU to adjust students’ activities to meet the needs of the new generation - more dynamic, more practical, more modern. The University also hopes students of course 24 to eventually learn about the traditions of Van Lang, which are the core values that have built the love and pride of many generations of students.

The C24 students focused on listening to the President’s speech. The large Hoa Lu stadium was overwhelmed with the large number of Van Lang students.

The problems such as holding the opening ceremony on weekday, 3 times changing the venue and date couldn’t beat the excitement of students. Students motivated themselves: only 1 time in 4 years, try to come! Compared with the time when they were applying for the university with hundreds of questions, the students of course 24 now seem to be more mature and willing to share with the university’s difficulties after a month studying in Van Lang. It is a good signal to start the 2018 - 2019 school year.
