Later on, alumni got on stage one after another, recalling funny stories of learning and living in college and sharing career experiences and gains during the 10 years. After graduation, some studied further for postgraduate or doctorate degree, some made progress in career, some lived in peace and beyond as they expected, and some hopped among jobs and prepared to climb higher with the 10 years as a new start. They revealed happiness and complicated feelings out of their complexion when talking. It was a memorable and treasurable experience of college in life. Thus, wherever they are, whatever they are, they are often proud of Alma Mater and their identity as “ZJUers”
After the meeting, they visited the campus, as walking and taking photos. Compared with the first time, Zijingang Campus is prosperous with the magnificent Qiushi Lecture Hall and rising buildings in the West Zone, which are footprints in the process of constructing the top class university in the world.
As walking, they came to Lantian dormitory, they felt familiar with the old building, as if they travelled back to the time when they were together joining military training, washing clothes, buying meal in the school canteen, and riding to take class. Every tree and grass witness their past days and their trip for dream.

Youth is a picture drawing beautiful and romantic color.
