Orientation camps starts every summer. Unfortunately, with the alarming surge of COVID-19 in Hong Kong and many other parts of the world, we feel pity that we are not able to meet up with you face to face this summer. Despite the crazy change we are threatened by COVID-19 paramedic, we have come together and are managing to get on with it. Our senior students in different faculties and colleges are ready to organize a series of virtual orientation activities, aiming to help you understand your faculty/department/college better, make friends with students from the same faculty/department/college who will grow and learn with you through the coming years. Those friendships may last for a lifetime! Before you enrolling the online orientation activities, let us share more information about the orientation with you.
