Fifth Golden Wutong Festival of Xi'an Jiaotong University kicks off
The eagerly anticipated Golden Wutong Festival, which has garnered attention from both teachers and students, is here. From Nov 29 to Dec 5, the Pengkang Road on Xingqing Campus and Wutong Avenue on Yanta Campus of Xi'an Jiaotong University (XJTU) will create a beautiful late-autumn landscape.
Wu Tong is the Chinese name for plane tree.
Golden plane trees adorn XJTU.
To augment the festive atmosphere, multiple classical poems and famous lines related to plane trees have been crafted into decorations and hung from the trees, while teachers and students alike are taking photos and enjoying the festival.
"Golden plane tree, poetic campus life," translated into multiple languages, is hung on the plane trees.
Kids play in the leaves.
Moreover, XJTU has prepared more than 10 "Poetic Campus Life" activities for teachers and students to enjoy, including a plane-tree-related practice course of DIY, painting exhibition, a plane-tree-related poetry collection activity, an art performance, plane-tree-themed fairs, and a hunt to find the largest plane tree leaf.
The university has also prepared 127 limited edition creative products featuring plane trees for participants. On Dec 3, the university will broadcast live on multiple platforms, allowing more people to appreciate the scenery along Wutong Avenue online.
