30,000 XTU Teachers and Students Welcome Olympic Flame


The 5th day of June is one of the most glorious days for our university. When the long-expected Olympic flame was carried to our university by relays of runners, it received an extremely grand and ardent welcome by 30,000 XTU teachers and students. At 10:25 am, President Luo He’an, the 158th torchbearer in Xiangtan, passed through “Three-span Arch” (the gate of Xiangtan University) carrying the “Propitious Clouds” torch. People cheered and the whole university showed its ever-increasing passion for this event. .

In that afternoon in Shaoshan, Wen Huazhi, a student in our School of Tourism Management, passed the flame as the 160th torchbearer.
