"CoPE Ding Ding" Student-oriented Outpost

"CoPE Ding Ding" Student-oriented Outpost

It is our honour to have the local artist, Mr. Yan Wong, to re-design the kiosk under the concept of a Zen garden. When you drop by, please slow down your pace and find serenity in the “natural” look of it. Surrounded by greenery, it is a nice spot to destress, relax and refresh your mind, before getting back to your study again.

Superpass Calligraphy Workshop x Henna Art Experience

Want to know the basics of modern Chinese calligraphy and create your own Superpass postcards and stickers? Here is the chance! Superpass is an HKU phrase meaning “pass exams with distinction”. It is also a traditional HKU occasion where students gather to write good wishes for the upcoming exams.

In addition, with the overwhelming support in the Henna Art Experience in September, we will rerun it so that more students can experience the charm of henna. Come and discover the henna design our artist draws on your skin, not to mention that henna symbolises luck and positive vibes.

These events are a perfect break from your hectic schedule and a great way to finish off your final weeks of the first semester!
