Dear Fellow Graduates,
You may have noticed
through various reports circulated by the University or in the media
that former graduates of the University of Hong Kong have been quite
proactive in organising reunion activities and in putting forth
initiatives to support the development of the University. To take
forth this tradition and to build on the momentum, at the invitation
of the HKU Development and Alumni
Affairs Office, a group of 1978 graduates have formed an Organising
Committee to put together various programmes during 2004 to celebrate
the Silver Jubilee of our graduation.
Reunion Dinner will be held on June 12, Saturday, at Loke Yew Hall.
In the run-up to the Reunion Dinner, we have launched this website
and will put together a souvenir book, so that fellow graduates
can share with one another their experience in their past 25 years
and ideas on other initiatives which we can take collectively.
When we secured the
opportunity to enter the University of Hong Kong in the 1970's,
we were among the selected few. The education we received has benefited
our careers and allowed us to make a contribution in different fields.
As members of the most well established university in Hong Kong,
the community of HKU graduates is very well placed to re-invest
what we have obtained into the community, and to make a contribution
to HKU to educate future generations of our young people. Graduates
of well established universities around the world in North America
and Europe have a long established tradition of putting forth ideas
to their Alma Mater to help propel forward university development
and to set aside financial resources as part of their contributions.
We will be approaching fellow graduates to help out in this manner
in coming months.
We very much look forward
to involving as many fellow graduates of 1978 as possible in the
various activities. Details of the Silver Jubilee events and list
of contact persons are available at http://www.alumni.hku.hk/class78/aboutus1.html.
are most welcome to send us your stories and pictures for sharing
on the website or in the souvenir book, and take part in the
HKU Class of '78
