On June 29th, CMU Commencement 2017 was held in the stadium. Leadership of CMU and members of the Academic Degrees Committee went up the podium with solemn music played, guided by the entrance of the academic mace meaning "inheriting the red-doctors legacy and maintaining academic decency".
During the flag-raising ceremony, the national flag of China was raised, followed by the new CMU flag and the old flag of the former Military Health School of China’s Workers and Peasants Red Army, which encouraged all faculty and students to stay true to their origins and strive forward with bravery.
