Resolutions have been taken, new beginnings have begun, semesters have ended and semesters have begun— the new year has brought with it a new semester and a brand new, happy welcome!


For those of us who are returning to the Student Residence at CityU, welcome! For those of you who are only getting started, thank you— thank you for choosing a wonderful place, you have done yourself an unparalleled favour.


From Week 1 to Week 13, this semester is jam packed with interesting events and hopefully unforgettable experiences: starting with the Fun Walk on 19 January, and ending of course, with semester finals! But let’s take a quick look at what comes in between–for one, all sorts of physically challenging activities, from the sought after Yoga classes at the Residence, to the fierce Professor Edmund Ko Cup (which includes sports like Badminton and Basketball, and the icing on the cake, the Singing Contest) and our new initiative Bollywood Workout Workshop.


And then we have a series of events (foodies of CityU, these are for you): “Cooking Mama”, a cooking class, followed by a more exclusive “Healthy Food Cooking Competition”and finally, “Sweeties’ Workshop”, for your sweet tooth!


Last but certainly not the least, we have several activities involving cross-cultural exchange, such as the “Language Buddy Programme” wherein you can learn a language and teach a language too. These activities truly make the CityU Student Residence what it is— diverse. Stay tuned to ResLink for more updates and details!


May we all make indelible memories this semester, from start to finish. Welcome home!
