Over 500 alumni of different faculties and schools, staff and friends gathered on HKBU campus to join in the Homecoming Day 2015 festivities themed after “Dreams of Flying Colours” on 24 October 2015.

Organised by the Alumni Affairs Office, the Homecoming Day 2015 kicked off with HKBU Alumni Soccer-Seven, followed by Fun Campus Tour, Fun-filled Tea Reception, and Alumni Investiture Ceremony before coming to a successful close with the Dreams of Flying Colours Reunion Dinner.

At the Fun-filled Tea Reception, senior management of the University welcomed alumni by presenting the seven graduate attributes through a dynamic art jam session. Alumni who graduated in 1965, 1970, 1975, 1980, 1985 and 1990 received name-engraved medals from Professor Roland Chin, President and Vice-Chancellor, at the Alumni Investiture Ceremony, a unique HKBU tradition that recognises alumni’s contribution to society over the years.

For the first time, a carnival was also staged together with the School of Business, which provided an opportunity for alumni to gather with cherished members of the HKBU family. Participants joined a series of leisure and parenting activities on a joyful and memorable Saturday.
