31 August 2019
Students kicked off their journey at the Residential Colleges (RCs) on a joyful Saturday (31 August) greeting their peers and teachers at the Welcoming Party and moving into their new rooms.
The day began with the RC Welcoming Party. More than 100 local, non-local and exchange students were welcomed by the Student Affairs Office and the four individual RCs with souvenirs, bread fresh from the oven and chit-chat.
Dr Tom Fong, Vice-President (Organisational Development), encouraged the students to participate in RC activities and cherish every opportunity of interacting with other members of the RCs.
Each RC Management Team, comprising the RC Master, Associate Master and Resident Tutors, introduced their RC and gave a preview of activities in the coming year.
Through interactive games and quizzes, our student residents learnt essential tips about living in the RCs and took the first step of becoming an active resident of the RC community.
Following the Party was the mass move-in that began at noon. The RCs became lively and boisterous as more than 600 students moved in, following the move-in of exchange, international and mainland students a week earlier.
With the smooth kick-off, a vivid living-and-learning experience is awaiting students.
Students, teachers and staff were having fun
