President’s Welcome Message
Dear New Students,
Welcome to the HSUHK family! I would like to express my heartiest congratulations to you embarking on a new learning journey at HSUHK.
This year, the theme of the University’s New Student Orientation Programme is “同恒Goal@HSUHK”. As your companion, our staff, teachers and fellow students will stand ready to help your transition to university life as smooth and pleasant as possible, to help you learn new ideas and perspectives, to brave challenges that may come in your way, and to realize your potentials.
University life is a good opportunity to build your goals and personal values. I encourage you to make good use of the University’s ample resources, facilities and learning opportunities, such as overseas exchanges, internships, service learning, art and sports activities, work at student associations, residential college life, etc. Through these learning experiences, you will be able to enhance your interpersonal skills and personal growth, thereby building your own value system.
As a liberal-arts-oriented university, HSUHK firmly believes in the transformative power of its unique “Liberal + Professional” education model. Apart from being exposed to a wide spectrum of cross-disciplinary knowledge, you will also study specific disciplines and meet with leaders of the industry. You will develop a humanity perspective and the requisite twenty-first century transferable core competencies, to help you become future global citizens with critical thinking, innovative minds, human caring, moral values and social responsibilities.
We are glad to stand by your side throughout the journey of your academic and personal pursuits in the coming few years. A good start is half the success. I trust that your proactive attitude and purposeful participation in the learning opportunities and resources will make your university life an immensely rewarding experience.
I am sure that there are a lot more you could do and explore at HSUHK. Do think out of the box and be open-minded. You are more capable than who you think you are! No matter which path you choose in the future, you will then be able to handle future challenges in work and life with confidence.
I wish you a happy and fruitful journey in HSUHK.
Simon S.M. Ho
