University-wide Orientation  


O’Venture is a new form of University-wide Orientation for freshmen to immerse in the HKUST community while having fun and joy like in a theme park. All first-year students will take part in activities, enjoy performances and have hands on experience in interesting workshops, according to their interest and time during Aug 25 to 27. All these are being brought to you by student groups and program organizers who you cannot miss. What’s more?
