 【President"s Office】

     Vice President, Deans, Department Directors, Advisors, freshmen and guests, good morning!

     Firstly, I would like to congratulate the new students, as they embark on their new life journey. Welcome to our Wenzao Ursuline family. Wenzao Ursuline University is a Catholic school and although it may be different from your own religious beliefs, I would still like you to get a true understanding of Wenzao’s spiritual beliefs and the role it has in our school. 

     This year is Wenzao’s 50th anniversary. Although it has been marked by a year of a particularly low birthrate for students entering their first year of tertiary education, however, our university has had a particularly excellent year.  In fact, with an average enrollment rate of 93.2%, it has been one of Wenzao’s best years to date. This is the highest enrolment of all the technical universities in all of Taiwan and exemplifies the hard work and joint efforts of all the staff and faculty who have created such a legacy over the past 50 years.  As the current President, please be assured that I will work with great earnestness, in order to ensure Wenzao’s continued success over the next 50 years. You too will have a lot to contribute to Wenzao’s success. I have confidence that you will all prevail while you are here.

     Wenzao’s motto is "Revere the Divine, Love the Human". This is not just a slogan but a way of life at our university. It is exhibited in everybody’s behavior. This can be carried out in simple ways, such as cleaning up after events and throwing away your trash so our hard working cleaning “aunties” do not have to clean up after anyone. Try to show love and respect from the heart. Heaven itself looks down, when we are kind and show humility. Even in our earliest education our teachers have taught us how to love others. Care for all your classmates, even if they come from different geographical locations or have different personalities.  Love is an altruistic behavior, sometimes its value cannot be seen immediately. I often receive emails from students that have complaints or feel they have been treated unfairly. Although we may not agree on everything, Wenzao Ursuline University is our home therefore I respect your freedom to share your opinions. I also welcome the opportunity to meet and discuss these matters.  I believe our teachers not only teach Knowledge, but also teach our students how to be good leaders, to love themselves and care for others. They teach how to communicate, experience respect and carry out altruistic values. Finally, it is when all the students maintain great ethical standards, everyone brings glory to Wenzao.

     Over the next few years, you will learn about the “three Ls” (Life, Language, and Leadership). This is the very essence of being a Wenzao student. Through every course, you will learn about loving life, effective communication and the spirit of leadership through Christ. In 2016, Wenzao also came in first out of 169 Universities in a “foreign language and communications” competition . This was truly a great honor and news which I proudly delivered to our faculty and students. We must always work toward maintaining a great reputation and high standards in education.

     In your first English camp, you learned about SERVIAM. Never become lax and always remember Wenzao’s spirit of service. Do not drift from this, even if it is just in giving praise, appreciation and thanksgiving.

     The school has now been in operation for half a century and is celebrating its 50th anniversary. It is indeed a great year and the dawn of another half century. Remember you will all become future torch bearers for this new era. Don"t make excuses for your own failures, find a way to turn it around and become more successful. Let’s work together to continually make Wenzao Ursuline University greater. I hope you will be happy at Wenzao and that by becoming people of great values and competency, you will all become great ambassadors for the university.
