The Faculty Reception for New Undergraduates 2022 has been held successfully at LT6, 1/F, Lee Shau Kee Building on 5 September 2022. Around 170 freshmen and 40 faculty members have participated in the event.
In the welcoming speech, Dean of Arts Prof. Max Tang mentioned that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was only the second time he attended the Faculty Welcoming Reception since 2019. He was glad to meet all the freshmen on the first school day of the new academic year 2022-23. He encouraged students to take part in various activities and become an active member of CUHK ARTS, a diverse and inclusive learning community.
Then, Prof. Peggy Mok, Associate Dean of Arts (Student Affairs), shared some useful information with freshmen like Scholarships and Financial Aid, Student Development Portfolio, Co-op Programme and Overseas Exchange Opportunities. She hoped students could have a brief idea of how to plan their study journey in CUHK.
All freshmen also joined the Programme Casual Exchange Session. They benefited a lot from their programme representatives and student ambassadors on how to prepare their new study life in CUHK ARTS.
At the end of the event, Faculty Office of Arts delivered Faculty T-Shirts and folders to all freshmen as souvenir. As Dean Tang mentioned, he believed all students had enjoyed the event and looked forward to meeting them on CUHK campus.
