A few hundred alumni gathered on HKBU campus on 14 October for a happy reunion at 2017 Homecoming Day organised by the Alumni Affairs Office.
The Homecoming Day offered an array of joyous activities, which included campus tours, an Alumni Investiture Ceremony, tea reception and the Reunion Poon Choi Dinner.
At the Alumni Investiture Ceremony, over 200 alumni who graduated in 1962, 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987 and 1992 were presented name-engraved medals by President Roland Chin to recognise their contributions to the alma mater and society over the years.
The tea reception and the Reunion Poon Choi Dinner offered a good opportunity for alumni and other members of the HKBU family to reunite and catch up with each other. The Dinner was a happy gathering of nearly 500 alumni spanning several generations, from the 1960s to recent alumni who graduated after 2010, and from over 25 academic departments. They were joined by international students and representatives of 18 alumni associations as well as current and retired faculty members.
