Alumni in Shanghai had a great time as they were invited to Vice-President Dr Eden Woon's open house party in November. Sharing a strong passion for HKUST, many of them volunteered to help with the establishment of a Shanghai Chapter to further strengthen the bond among alumni in their neighborhood.
To catch up with the good weather at the end of fall, alumni in Beijing hiked to Mangshan（蟒山）, a suburb of the city, in late September. Organized by the Beijing Alumni Association, this was probably one of the most tiring gatherings they have had, but also the happiest at the same time!
The Shenzhen Alumni Association was officially founded in October with the inauguration ceremony being held at the HKUST Shenzhen Research Institute in Nanshan. The Executive Committee, comprising 10 dedicated members, is striving to foster closer relations among alumni in Shenzhen, where it accommodates a majority of graduates on the Mainland.
The year 2012 has been a particularly eventful one for the Singapore Alumni Association. Its Kickoff Party at Ying Yang Rooftop Bar was well received by alumni, with quite a number joining for the first time. The Association collaborated again with HKU and CU Alumni Associations this year to celebrate the Mid-Autumn Festival. Many alumni and exchange-out students were invited to celebrate the 15th Anniversary of the Establishment of the HKSAR with Mr Gregory So Kam-leung, Secretary for Commerce and Economic Development, at the Gala Dinner at the Fullerton Hotel. Don't miss the forthcoming fabulous events!
