10 April 2021
With President Simon S M Ho as the presiding officer, the Graduation Ceremony of the School of Humanities and Social Science took place on 10 April 2021 in the College Hall of The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong. The Ceremony featured a warm and solemn ambiance for graduates of the classes of 2019 and 2020 as well as their family members and friends.
Conducted by two student Masters of Ceremonies, Ms Kati Ng and Mr Kenneth Leung, who are students of the BSS (Hons) in Asian Studies and BA (Hons) in English respectively, the Ceremony was attended by 60 graduates and 70 guests on site, and was also live broadcast to over 60 guests.
In the Dean’s address, Professor Kwok-kan Tam encouraged the graduates to ride on the ‘Professional + Liberal’ education that they received in the University, to experience the world and try different jobs before settling on a career or belief that they like, or even become a member of the HSUHK to serve the alma mater. He added that although graduates would be travelling on a new journey, their teachers would always be there for them and give them support.
Mr Danny Lam, the valedictorian, appreciated the support of the professors and the opportunities that he had been given to understand the world and widen his intellectual horizons.
In his words of blessings to graduates, President Simon Ho hoped that graduates would continue to uphold the 5Cs qualities: Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication & Collaboration, Caring and Community Engagement that they were equipped with during their study in the HSUHK. Graduates were encouraged to keep exploring, never stop learning and continue to challenge themselves to excellence wherever their future journey would take them.
