CUHK held its 76th Congregation for the Conferment of Degrees on 20 November. Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung, CUHK Vice-Chancellor and President gave a speech, titled ‘Our Leaders of Tomorrow’ to the graduates. He quoted the words of Pope Francis to encourage them to be humble, to be knowledgeable and visionary, and to be inclusive. He also appealed to the younger generation to sow the seeds of faith, optimism, love, understanding, pardon, hope and peace.

This year, a total of 6,414 Master’s degrees and 3,385 Bachelor’s degrees were conferred at the congregation. On the same occasion, Prof. Sung officiated at the Inauguration of the Choh-Ming Li Professorships and presented awards to outstanding teachers and researchers.

Mass Dance at the Beacon

The 21st Joint University Mass Dance made CUHK its second stop on 5 November. Dancing teams from 10 universities in Hong Kong gathered in front of the Beacon to let their feet go. The powerful moves and energetic beat fired up the University Mall. As the party hosts that day, CU Freshman Team, CU Current Team and CU OG Team presented three hot shows that took everyone’s breath away.

Started in 1994 with just three universities, Joint University Mass Dance has now become an annual event for dancers across 10 local universities. To give the best performances, the dancers devoted themselves to an intense training period of more than 10 hours per week for over two months. During the show, CU Freshman Team with 80 members, made the most passionate and energetic moves while the CU Current Team members challenged themselves with the trendiest steps, and won thunderous applause with their fantastic performance.

Let’s get into the dancing beat of CUHK dancers through the video.
