Zhao Taoying, Director of the Creation Center and Deputy Dean of the School of Film and Television, urged the students to establish the correct views on the world, life and values no matter they are studying at the university or doing other things in the society. Bao Lei, Head of the Postgraduate Student Affairs Office of the School of Film and Television, did the roll call of this class for the first time, and stressed that postgraduate students should also strictly abide by the rules and regulations such as request for leave etc, and should not relax self-discipline.
