A Soochow Declaration of Perseverance and Passion in the Round-Island Bike Tour
2013-JUL-29

As a curtain-raiser to the celebrations of the 113th anniversary of Soochow University, 113 students completed the mission of cycling around Taiwan and returned on March 16, 2013 to Soochow’s Waishuanghsi campus before a lively, roaring assembly of faculty, staff members, alumni and students. President Pan Wei-Ta of Soochow University applauded the riders with the remark: “This round-island bike tour is a rallying point for every one of us here, a chance to learn that we can count on each other and turn a colorful page of memory from your college life.”

The journey started at 6 a.m. on March 5th, from the main campus of Soochow University. By personally covering every inch of the trip, our riders came to realize why the island was named “Formosa”, the beautiful one. Through the visits to business corporations, our horizons were broadened and our understanding of the term “The Spirit of Taiwan” was fully embodied. In addition to cycling and railway rides, many other activities also enabled our alumni in various counties throughout Taiwan to participate in many ways, such as seminars and service as escort riders for short distances in their areas. These meetings, exchanges and interactions proved to be effective in the forming of stronger bonds among members of the big “Soochow Family.”

On the Sports Day when we marked the 113th Anniversary, enthusiastic participation by all was evident in the opening parade as members of the faculty and staff, alumni as well as the student body entered our athletic field with slogans, banners that we spared no effort in displaying. In his opening address, President Pan made special mention of the presence of alumni from Malaysia and Board Members of the Friends of Soochow Foundation who came all the way from Los Angeles, USA. The most touching moment came when all 113 members in the cycling corps returned to our campus safe and sound, unveiling the 113th Anniversary celebrations of Soochow University. President Pan recognized the act of cycling around the island by the 113 riders as undoubtedly the most vivid demonstration of how students can conquer all hindrances with youthful sweat, fulfill the spirit of perseverance and passion bequeathed to us, and thereby strike the most beautiful notes for a new generation in the history of the university
