We promote Hong Kong culture and community bonding in UChicago through social and professional events.
Since 1997, the Hong Kong Students' Association has organised academic talks, fundraising sales, and study breaks to promote Hong Kong and its culture to all students at the University of Chicago. We also host prospie dinners, information sessions, send-off parties, and alumni gatherings in Hong Kong, to ensure that international students from Hong Kong are well-integrated and supported in Chicago.
Most of our events are announced and publicised on our Facebook group. Past events have included bun sales, Chinatown dinners, send-off parties at the China Club, and a talk by Secretary for Financial Services Dr. KC Chan on Hong Kong's financial markets.
Tony is a third0year majoring in Economics and Public Policy Studies. Before coming to UChicago, he went to Chinese International School in Hong Kong.
Chak is a third-year student majoring in Economics and minoring in Germanic Studies. Before UChicago, Chak studied at the Singapore International School in Hong Kong and the Robert Bosch United World College in Germany. Besides the HKSA, Chak is also involved in the Chamber Music Organization, Chamber Music Program and Neighborhood Schools Program. During his spare time, Chak likes to eat out at Chinatown, read German, play foosball, and pool. Having spent his first-year trekking back and forth between I-House and campus, Chak has decided to move closer; He now lives in the Max Palevsky Residential Hall. He is most excited to meet new people, and looks forward to welcoming everyone onto the UChicago campus.
Vanessa Ma is the quintessential epitome of the college student. She is currently a Neuroscience and Public Policy double major, but ask her 2 months later and it will probably be something else. She's working at a venture capital firm this summer, but during the school year does lighting and sound for all the frat/sorority/cultural shows at Mandel Hall. In her spare time she arranges and sings bass for a cappella, dances in her room and creates ice-cream concoctions at the dining hall. Talk to her about RSOs, financial aid, campus work or anything at all!
