OUHK Open Day
The OUHK turns 25 this year and we have much to showcase to the community. An Open Day is the best way for the general public and prospective students to find out what we have to offer and what we have achieved through our many years of hard work.
The OUHK Open Day held on 21 June was one of the most important celebration activities of the University’s Silver Jubilee Anniversary. In the highly charged atmosphere of the quadrennial World Cup, the event was officially ‘kicked’ off with goals scored by the Chairman of the 25th Anniversary Steering Committee Dr Vincent Woo and President Prof. Yuk-Shan Wong in a skit at the opening ceremony.
About 1,000 visitors were then welcome to explore both the Ho Man Tin Campus and the new Jubilee College in order to gain a closer look at the University’s latest development, featuring a diversity of activities to inform and entertain visitors. The University libraries, nursing laboratory, and testing and certification laboratories were opened with guided tours. In addition to this, a series of exhibitions and talks were organized to introduce the University, its academic programmes, modes of study and student activities, in which representatives from the Schools and administrative units demonstrated their work and diverse talents. Exhibitions were also set up to showcase students’ artwork, writing, research and computing projects, and studio shows were held to present their creative advertising initiatives and short films. On-site demonstrations of comic drawing, chemical experiments and a robotic arm also caught the gaze of many curious visitors, while an interactive drama entitled Runaway, a mini music show, and a myriad of fun games brought further joy and ambience to the Open Day.
