Yang Han, director of the political work department of the brigade, said that college student soldiers have mature ideology, strong cultural foundation, and strong accepting ability, which are an important talent foundation for future military development. This year’s notice clearly requires that college students, especially graduates, must be comprehensively evaluated for their majors and military needs, fully soliciting personal wishes, and arranging to serve in technical-intensive troops with professional counterparts as much as possible, so as to maximize the matching of personnel and posts, and make use of talents. benefit.

They benefited from the "Special Masters Program for Retired College Soldiers" implemented by the Ministry of Education: Tsinghua University, Peking University and other 467 colleges and universities listed separate places for retired college students in their graduate recruitment.
