[Event] Orientation Day for Undergraduate Admissions 2015

The CUHK Orientation Day for Undergraduate Admissions 2015 was successfully held on 24th October. The Orientation Day is an annual event, serving as a good opportunity for secondary school students, teachers and parents to know more about CUHK and the undergraduate programmes it offers.

During the Orientation Day, students of the department helped to introduce anthropology and explain our programme requirements to secondary school students and other visitors. Prof. Gordon Mathews, Prof. Teresa Kuan, Prof. Sealing Cheng, and Prof. Sharon Wong also helped to deliver admission talks to visitors in English and Cantonese respectively.

Prof. Cheng's talk had attracted over 90 visitors!

In addition to the information booth and admission talks, we had also set up an exhibition of ethnic clothing in Room 205 of Esther Lee Building. Our department was also opened for students’ visit, with teachers’ publications and thematic ethnographic collections being displayed.

This year, Prof. Sharon Wong and Prof. Wengcheong Lam, together with our postgraduate and undergraduate students, also organized an archaeology demonstration session at the Archaeology Lab in Tsang Shiu Tim Building.

Thanks to the efforts of our teachers and students, this year’s Orientation Day was a great success! Hopefully, the secondary school students could know more about anthropology and our undergraduate programme after the event.
