Alumni Strengthens Connections
with Alma Mater

In the past 20 years, HKUST has nurtured over 43,000 graduates. Members of the alumni, whether they are in Hong Kong or abroad, always remember the homecoming experience as they join reunions and keep close contacts with their Alma Mater.

From London, Paris, Amsterdam to Geneva, HKUST President Tony F Chan and Vice-President for Institutional Advancement Dr Eden Y Woon hosted gatherings with the alumni during their visit to Europe last Fall. The warm get-togethers brought precious moments to the alumni body in Europe.

Back to Hong Kong, over 120 members of the alumni attended the Annual Dinner of HKUST Alumni Association with a glittering line-up of performances. The alumni demonstrated their artistic talents with an Acapella. Engineering alumnus Mr Jacky Chiu led 'little angels', who were his students at the SDM Jazz & Ballet Academie, to give a fabulous Jazz performance. Illustrator Ms Jeanie Leung, a Marketing alumna, crafted a commemorative photo frame for the celebration.

400 members the alumni and their family members embraced the festive moods towards the end of the year as they enjoyed a fun day at the Ocean Park in December. They were greeted by President Chan and Vice-President Dr Woon who introduced to them the latest developments of the University.

Members of the alumni definitely enjoyed their time together.
