The Blooming Campus

The March breeze is like a painter’s brush, coloring the campus with flourishing blossoms.

The heavy fog that came a few days ago turned out to be a prelusion to this amazing spring show, lulling the audience’s eyes before an unexpected scene . All of a sudden, various kinds of flowers are now blooming in the campus.

At this time of the year, the campus is more like a garden, where you can find azalea flourishing in many colors, white, pink and lively red in all different shades. Bauhinia variegates in its full blossom. Fragrant roses, glowing Golden Trumpet-tree and leafy cypress are all frequently visited by lovely butterflies and creatures that become lively with the new season’s arrival. In the campus, people are stunned and stopped by the fragrance and the beautiful scene around.

Just like spring, may the vigorous scene of the campus bring you hope and energy.

Bonding in silence
Breaking barriers in learning – Gladys Tang

Many deaf students have not able to sit for public examinations when finishing their senior high school. For them, the road to university or further education has been cut off at an early stage.

Prof. Gladys Tang from the Department of Linguistics and Modern Languages of CUHK started her research on sign bilingualism for the deaf people in 1993 and has made tremendous breakthroughs in language development and continuous education for children with hearing problems. Years of dedication and hard work earned her the Hong Kong Humanity Award in 2013.

From March 18 to April 8, a total of 26 selected films of different countries and genres, be it classic or contemporary, are being screened around the campus in this three-week event.
