In order to celebrate the Festival of Ascending High, the Students' Union organized a volunteer activity to help elderly people in its neighborhood on Oct. 17th.
Volunteers made full use of their strengths and offered various services during the activity. Medical students offered to take blood pressure and measure heart rate, psychology majors counseled the elderly on their mental issues, and those from the fashion and design department made comfortable clothes for the old. Even questions concerning how to avoid being cheated financially were covered in the activity.
The activity received high praise from both the aged and the students. The former said that this was the best services they had ever experienced. The latter, on the other hand, believed that this had been a perfect chance for them to apply what they had learned to real life situations, and they felt proud that their professional knowledge could be of use and the activity made them feel needed.
