On the evening of May 9, the 14th "Zongheng Cup" Students Debate Competition of GMU, sponsored by the School Youth League Committee and the Speech and Debate Association, ended in the Huangjin Campus. The two teams in the finals were the representatives of the School of Information Engineering (SIE) and the School of Pharmacy (SP). Zeng Zexin, Deputy Secretary of the GMU Party Committee of CPC, was on-site observation. The leaders in charge of Division of Academic Affairs, the Youth League Committee and five counselors served as judges.

During the contest, the two sides debated the issue "Whether college students’ behavior development mainly depends on self-discipline or heteronomy". The SIE argued that "Self-discipline is the main way to cultivate college students’ behavior", while the SP "Heteronomy is the main way to cultivate college students' behavior". The contestants of both sides had clear ideas, witty words and warm atmosphere in every link of argumentation and refutation.

After fierce competition, the team of the SIE won the championship of the competition, and Zeng Ying of the SIE won the title of "Best Debater" in the final.

After the competition, the students indicated that, in fact, whether self-discipline or heteronomy, its fundamental purpose was to enable college students to develop good habits, which was not only the need to improve their comprehensive literacy, but also the success guarantee of entering the workplace in the future.
