Information Day helps secondary school students navigate university life

Hundreds of thousands of visitors packed the campus during the City University of Hong Kong (CityU) Information Day on 13 October 2017 to explore the professional education opportunities offered by CityU.
The College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences (CLASS) and its departments organised exhibition booths, admissions talks, guided tours and workshops to provide visitors with up-to-date information on academic programmes and admission requirements in CLASS. The booths and many of the talks were well-received attracting a large crowd of prospective students and their parents who crammed the venues.

 

Professor Xiaowei ZANG, Dean of CLASS, visited the College and the departmental booths to show his support. He talked to colleagues and helpers at the booths and thanked them for their hard work devoted to the event.

Our excellent and innovative teachers are here to ignite and cultivate a passion for knowledge and discovery in students.” said Professor Wong. He advised the secondary school students to understand their personality and interests, stay focused on learning and make the right decision on university education.
