During a distinguished alumni memorial concert at Nanjing University on May 14, Chen Jun, president of the university, was invited by the students to sing a song on stage. Totally winging it, Chen gave in and sang a rousing rendition of "The Story of a Small Town" – with the host only needing to remind him of a few lyrics.
5月14日举办的南京大学杰出校友纪念会上,南京大学校长陈骏被邀请上台演唱歌曲,校长即兴演唱了一首引爆全场的《小城故事》——主持人只提醒了几句台词。

The footage of this singular phenomenon has since caught on like wildfire on video-sharing sites popular with students.
这一小段视频被学生放在网上分享,很快成为网络大热。

Continuing a trend
持续的趋势

Zhou Wenbin, the president of Jiangxi Province’s Nanchang University, also let loose a little ditty during the university’s 90th anniversary ceremony. Unsurprisingly, the footage has also become Internet gold. In the video, Zhou and 10 other top school leaders sang a chorus from "Xinshou Qianlian", the theme song of the 2002 China National Water-Skiing Championship.
江西南昌大学校长周文斌同样也为建校90周年典礼准备了一段歌曲。这段视频成为网络热点也在意料之中。在视频里,周文斌校长和其他10位学校领导合唱了2002年全国滑水锦标赛主题曲《心手牵连》。

The amusing incongruence between their woefully out-of-tune singing and unflinchingly dedicated facial expressions soon became a hot topic among student-netizens.
有趣的是,校领导们时而有些跑调,不过好像并未因此露出尴尬的神态。这不协调的场景很快也成为了学生网民讨论的热点。

Many didn’t mind that they can’t sing to save their lives – they appreciated the gall and gumption it takes to do more than simply give another speech.
许多人并不介意校长们是否唱的好听,他们敢于“出丑”,能够挑战自己,远远比做一场讲座更令人称赞。

"President Zhou was always so solemn and sedate in the past," Nanchang University junior Li Changyong said. "I think this kind of thing can only bolster their image around campus, make them a more personable face of the school overall."
南京大学大三学生李长勇(音译)说:“周校长过去总是很严肃很安静,而如今这种形式会让同学们对校长留下更好的印象,觉得领导们更加亲切。”

Though they may have caught more attention for their antics, neither Chen nor Zhou can claim to be the first university president to go from zero to hero with a song.
尽管陈校长和周校长因为有趣的表演而被广泛关注,但他们两都不是第一个因一首歌而火起来的大学校长。

Xu Zhihong, the former president of Peking University, won over the public in 2008 for his rendition of the popular song "Invisible Wings" during the university’s New Year party. One student who was present said that Xu’s song was by far and away the highlight of the evening.
在北京大学2008新年联欢晚会上,时任北大校长的许智宏演唱了一首流行歌曲《隐形的翅膀》。据在场的学生说,许校长的表演毫无疑问是当晚晚会的高潮。

A more open university
更加开放的大学

Nowadays everyone uploads videos of themselves singing onto the Internet, but it’s still a major event when someone like a university president gives it a whirl. These provide a contrast to the stereotype that the most emotion their presidents ever show is a smile and a nod at a conference or ceremony.
如今大家都喜欢把自己唱歌的视频上传到网上,但大学校长的演唱却是件掀起波涛的大事件。这些视频让大学校长和从前产生了对比,不再只会在会议和典礼上微笑或是点头。

Zheng Ruoling, an education expert at Xiamen University, said that university presidents, who have a certain administrative rank but are also busy with academic activities, have very limited opportunities for face-to-face communication with students.
厦门大学教育专家郑若玲(音译)认为,大学校长不仅是有一定的行政职务,还要忙于各种学术活动,所以和同学们面对面交流的时间非常有限。

Zheng argues that the approachability of a president to some extent embodies how open the university is, and that more communication is needed between students and major university leaders, including the president.
郑若玲教授认为,大学校长的亲切某种程度上体现了大学的开放程度。学生和包括校长在内校领导之间需要更多的交流。

Strengthening communication
加强交流

In addition to singing, some presidents have taken other "fashionable" measures to strengthen their communication with students.
除了唱歌,大学校长们还能用其他很“潮”的方式加强和学生的交流。

Li Xiaohong, president of Wuhan University started personally replying to online posts of students on blogs and forums, while at Xiamen University, the president Zhu Chongshi started holding a "having breakfast with the president" activity as of late last year, which is held once every month.
武汉大学校长李晓红亲自在博客和论坛回复学生们的帖子,而厦门大学校长朱崇实,则自去年年底起开始开展每月一次“与校长一起吃早餐”的活动。

Every student who wants to communicate with president Zhu can apply on the Internet and then have a three-hour-long talk with him during the leisurely meal – though singing should definitely not be expected.
每个想和朱校长交流的同学都可以通过网络进行申请,然后在一边享受悠闲的早餐,一边与校长畅谈三小时——不过,听校长唱歌应该是不可能的了。
