    Orientation for full-time programme students


    The OUHK's four schools organized numerous orientation sessions for new full-time students on 29-31 August, helping them to learn more about the University and to settle into campus life. Additionally, the OUHK Students' Union held its orientation camp on 2-4 September, providing a chance for students to get to know each other before the commencement of the study term and to build up a sense of belonging. It also organized an orientation night in collaboration with the Student Nursing Society and the Rotaract Club on 28 September, attracting over 100 new students to spend a joyous evening together.

    Two OUHK teams, comprising eight students in total from the School of Science and Technology, won the third place awards in the '12th Challenge Cup' hosted by Dalian University of Technology in Dalian on 15-20 October. The competition was organized to nurture students' skills in academic research and writing, and to provide an exchange platform for Hong Kong and mainland students. The event attracted more than 1,000 entries from more than 400 mainland institutions, and 55 entries from 15 Hong Kong and Macau institutions. Both teams' research topics were related to harmful marine algae.

    Yip Shing-pan, a full-time year 3 student from the Bachelor of Business Administration in Banking and Finance programme, was one of the eight recipients of the Awards for Excellence in the Citi Community Intern Programme 2010-11. He was chosen from the 70 participants of the programme, which was co-organized by Citi Group and the Hong Kong Council of Social Service. The programme aimed to inspire business students from local universities to contribute their knowledge and expertise to non-profit organizations, and to cultivate their sense of corporate social responsibility. Each participant was required to complete 120 hours of work at a placement organization and to submit a report.

Moreover, a team of 12 students led by Associate Professors of the School of Science and Technology Dr Andrew Lui and Dr Li Tak-sing achieved a good result in the ACMHK Programming Contest as compared with other institutions, both in Hong Kong and throughout the region.
