Summer Throwback @ Alumni Atrium

18 Aug 2023

On 18 August 2023, the Alumni Affairs Office (AAO) hosted its first-ever retro party at the Alumni Atrium. It brought together around 70 alumni spanning different generations, and many of them arrived in their finest vintage attire.  

Ms Wanze Li, Interim Director of Alumni Affairs, warmly welcomed the participants and invited them to take group photos commemorating their graduation anniversaries. Next, Prof. Brian Kwok, Associate Professor from the School of Design, shared insights about neon lights in the city that set the stage for an illuminating evening.

The party came alive with a live band performance by the PolyU Alumni Band comprised of Eagle Chan and Stephanie Lau. The golden oldies songs created a nostalgic atmosphere, prompting our graduates to relive the cherished memories while mingling with one another. The Alumni Atrium underwent a remarkable transformation into a nostalgic wonderland, complete with snacks, games, and handicraft stalls that took participants down memory lane. One particularly popular spot was the photo corner, adorned with a backdrop reminiscent of old Hong Kong, where participants eagerly posed for Polaroids.  

Another highlight of the party was the highly anticipated best-dressed competition. The judging panel was formed by: Dr Miranda Lou, Executive Vice President of PolyU; Ms Wanze Li; Ir Yau Kwok-fai, President of the Federation of The Hong Kong Polytechnic University Alumni Associations (FHKPUAA); Ir Johnny Fan Siu-kay, Director of FHKPUAA; and Ir Tsui Tack-kong. Together with participant votes, the deserving winners of “My Favourite Vintage Outfit”, “Best-dressed Alumnus” and “Best-dressed Alumna” were presented with exclusive gifts.

The diverse group of alumni enjoyed the array of engaging activities throughout the evening, leaving with smiles on their faces and a special burlap tote from AAO as a memento.
