Yesterday morning we had orientation for new non-local students from 9:30-1:30 and then orientation for the faculty of social sciences from 2:30-4:15. The whole day was very boring and they talked about common sense knowledge and things we already knew since arriving here. However, I made some new friends and it was nice to meet other people besides the ones living in and around the dorms (as the housing situation is very spread out at HKU).
While on campus I took pictures in front of the big HKU sign, but unfortunately when taking out my camera the wire to upload photos to my laptop fell out and I lost it. I will be going to the Nikon store today to try and buy a new one, and I will post pictures once I have bought a new one (wish me luck!).
HKU held a WOW (Week of Welcome) party last night for all new local and non-local students. I didn't really want to go but had bought a ticket, so I went with a group of people I've been hanging out with lately. It was held in the main building on campus, both inside and outside and a good amount of people went. Buying the ticket gave you a coupon for two free drinks, but they only offered beer (ew!). We went to LFK after and there were a solid amount of people out, but nowhere near what the weekend is like. However, I met a bunch of new people there too and we made plans to do something this week.
Pictures to come... Hopefully!
(Finally was able to upload the picture on 9/1)
