Business Students Celebrate Amity through Virtual Happy Hour

Celebrating Togetherness: Dr. John Lai (front row, third from left) and Ms. Elaine Tam (second row, middle) celebrate the event’s success with the students performers.

Over 130 undergraduate business students from all over the world attended the Virtual Happy Hour on 5 November 2020. The virtual gathering was a multi-part online event, attended by both local and international students. It included mini-games, dancing and live musical performances (including allegro, singing, band performance, and piano solo) from the talented business students.

The event kicked off with a welcoming speech from Dr. John Lai (Assistant Dean, Undergraduate Studies). He emphasised on the importance of supporting each other, and keeping the CUHK Business School community alive and well in these challenging times.

The virtual gathering event is organised by the Undergraduate Office (UGO), and coordinated by a team of dedicated student organisers. The event was part of the UGO’s effort to engage students through social connections during the academic year, and is open for all business students to join.
