“干货”的力量,我们共勉

       2017年11月21日至22日,由西浦图书馆举办的“真人图书馆”系列活动在图书馆一楼153讨论区顺利开展。此次活动分为两场,共邀请了7位“真人图书”嘉宾,谈笑有鸿儒,往来无白丁,嘉宾们分享了自己的人生经历,趣闻轶事,学习方法和工作经验等充实而含金量高的“干货”。

       第一场“真人图书”分别邀请了商学院讲师兼名扬苏州的脱口秀演员 Sarah Peng、学术生涯一路开挂的人民教师朱哲辰、以及来自德勤的会计学霸邢秋玮3位嘉宾;第二场则邀请了金融数学“实习大神”全能美女学姐闫梓越、实践10000小时定律的悠悠球冠军戴士钦、校友力MAX联合创始人寇嘉清、全球挑战成员的科研大神孙玥青4位“真人图书”嘉宾。

       两场活动气氛热烈,趣味性十足,吸引了近上百人慕名而至,向各位经验级大师“取经”。在各位“真人图书”分享各自的话题后,进行一到两轮的借阅环节,可对自己感兴趣的“真人图书”进行深度探讨,充分满足了学生们的个性化需求。

       刚刚结束TED×Suzhou演讲的Sarah老师向大家分享了她四年的脱口秀经历,四年里她结识了各色各样趣味相投的脱口秀演员,多元的思想碰撞和共鸣让她更加坚定自己的爱好,脱口秀的实战经验与历练也让她以更为愉悦与欣赏的态度来对待生活与工作。在“借阅”环节中,Sarah表示应多邀请一些脱口秀嘉宾来演讲,将脱口秀的风格引入校园,引入学生社团,让更多的学生了解脱口秀这门艺术,进而锻炼学生的自我表达能力。而目前就职于苏州大学电子信息学院光网络技术研究中心的副教授朱哲辰老师是我校第一届毕业生,作为“化石级”学长的他则分享了自己在英国学习时遇到的困难和自己走向科研的机会,并向对科研和读博感兴趣的同学分享了自己做毕业设计的经验,为在座的同学指点迷津,他认为科研“要做自己感兴趣的事”,点滴的积累到最终的收获是水到渠成的。会计专业的刑秋玮向学生们阐述了她的学习方法、考试答题思路方面的技巧、在德勒的工作经验;此外,她还讲述了四大行业的运营情况,在这期间,她学到了很多,也成长了许多。

       金融数学专业的闫梓越讲述了她的实习经验,分享了获得实习的渠道,并附上自己丰富的中英文简历给大家做参考;冠军球手戴士钦以悠悠球的表演作为开场白,赢得了在场观众掌声连连,其次又分享了自己学习数学和英语的过程;寇嘉清则是一番理智幽默的讲说感染了在场观众,她强调了个人定位的重要性,讲述了如何明确专业选择和职业规划方向,最后向大家分享了她学习实践过程中的方法论;孙玥青认为要清楚自己真正想要的东西,认清自己的目标,她反思大学生“随大流”究竟是否适合自己,最后她分享了她大学时自己做的网站和作品并鼓励同学们在业余时间做一些有意义的事。

       休息之余,各位嘉宾和学生可在享受精致点心的同时,尽情地畅所欲言。接近活动尾声时,每位嘉宾都被图书馆授予真人图书馆荣誉证书,并合影留念。“真人图书馆”自举办以来都备受欢迎。勤学而交流,则博学而睿智。“真人图书们”结合自身学习工作经验向同学们答疑解惑、交流经验,同学们也借此机会与优秀的学长学姐促膝长谈。

       闫梓越对此次活动给予了高度评价,她认为活动很成功,表示下次如果还有幸被邀请也非常乐意分享新的经验。学生们对此次真人图书馆活动非常满意,来自大三会计系袁心仪感言道:“这是我第三次参加真人图书馆,Sarah对standupcomedy的热情,也让我更加坚持自己的兴趣爱好。坚持做自己喜欢的事,是一件很幸福的事。另外,他们的故事带给我更多地思考,所谓的一路开挂,需要更多的是踏实的努力和执着向上的精神。学霸的故事也并不是一帆风顺的,速度与激情的力量永不懈怠。短短的两个小时,在西浦遇见了三位个性鲜明,既有趣又有深度的真人书,真的是一件很温暖的事。”

        此次真人图书馆活动在欢歌笑语与掌声中逐渐落幕了,但思想的历练与知识的交流永不落幕,让我们一起期许明年的活动,带给我们不一样的精彩与温馨。
