31 Aug 2023
The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) hosted the PolyU Orientation Info Day yesterday to welcome freshmen to the PolyU family. The event was organised by the Student Affairs Office, with the theme of “Navigate Your Future”. About 1,300 freshmen attended the President’s Welcome address at the Jockey Club Auditorium or watched the live stream at the Global Student Hub and nearby Lecture Theatre on campus in the morning.
Prof. Jin-Guang TENG, President of PolyU, extended his warmest welcome to the new students and said “PolyU will make every effort to provide students with a holistic education that is not only of a world-class standard but also unlocks your potential in many unique ways. We hope that our students will become the leaders of tomorrow who will make a positive and significant contribution to Hong Kong, our Nation and the world.”
An inspiring sharing session was delivered by Mr James O Hing-pong, recipient of the 2022 Outstanding PolyU Young Alumni Award in Entrepreneurial Achievement, Co-Founder and Head of Marketing and Advertising of GoGoX, and current students. In addition, new students were treated to a student dance performance and music performance by the PolyU Orchestra and Choir.
To help new students become more familiar with PolyU, an Orientation Showcase was arranged in the afternoon and displayed around 60 booths hosted by different administrative units, student societies and interest clubs of PolyU. Around 3,600 students were attracted to explore an array of co-curricular activities and services at PolyU. Prof. Teng showed his support by visiting the booths, encouraging freshmen to actively engage with people from various backgrounds and participate in campus activities in order to broaden their horizons.
