Professor Wang Tao, the class adviser, gave a concluding speech. He first cited Mr. Mei Yiqi's definition of "master" and then sublimated it to raise the importance of "student." He urged the students to increase communication with their teachers so as to form a kind, interactive relationship. He also mentioned that the students are flowing water and the back waves. He hoped that they can defend their freedom but also endure loneliness. They can maintain their ideals but also study in a down-to-earth way.

At the end of the meeting, Wang Tao introduced the logo of Liu Yizheng School. The logo is composed of two purple triangles, one sitting on its base and the other upside down, which form the initials of QJ (strengthening foundation). The regular triangle means stability and foundation, and the inverted one is a symbol of diversity and internationalization. He hoped that all students can become an interdisciplinary scholar, who should lay a solid foundation first, then go international, and finally achieve a wonderful life.
Every student and teacher present received a set of exquisite souvenirs of Liu Yizheng School, including a canvas bag, a mug, a notebook, and stickers. This greatly enhanced everyone's cohesiveness.
