Shiu Pong College Students Participating in YUNA Symposium
Shiu Pong College students were invited to participate in the YUNA (Yale University – New Asia College) Symposium at New Asia College of the Chinese University of Hong Kong on March 16, 2016. Besides Shiu Pong College, Zhongshan University was also invited to this annual joint event between Yale University and New Asia College, which began 20 years ago. Three research reports were presented by the Yale students at the Symposium on the theme of “National Identity and Citizenship”. Through asking follow up questions during the Q&A sessions after the presentations, Shiu Pong students proactively engaged themselves in this international academic exchange between the four institutions.
The Shiu Pong group of 11 students were led by Prof. Leung, the Master of Shiu Pong College, and his wife. Upon arriving Hong Kong, students from New Asia College brought us to their campus for a tour, showing us around and introducing its history. We visited their museum, library and student activities center. During lunch gathering, we had a chance to converse with the Yale students in English, chatting about perspectives on academic pursuit.
This was indeed an invaluable learning experience for us to be able to participate in this academic exchange with students from three prestigious universities.
