Oak Anniversary emphasises the “connect” message among generations of HKU Science family. In light of this auspicious occasion, the collection of 80 Science stories is launched. We hold the belief that via sharing, Science family could reconnect and exchange.
Our alumni may step into different industries after graduation and live diversely, but undoubtedly they share the same starting point — HKU Science; our teachers, students and staff may come from various backgrounds and have their own past, but undeniably their present attach to HKU Science.
Whether our past or present relate to HKU Science, we all look forward to our future. We wish these stories could arouse resonance among HKU Science members and together we grow the Oak tree.
