(按此看中文版)

There is a group of people in your hall. They organize various activities to enrich your hall life. They have meetings almost everyday to the late night, discussing how they can provide better activities and more benefits for you. They greet you with their warm, big smiles every time you run into them. Yes, they are members of the Residents’ Association (RA), each brings along unique talents and styles to their respective hall cultures.

The RA Election took place in the evening of 24th-25th October in Moon Chun Multi-function Hall (MFH A). Almost all RAs had prepared special-designed promotion boards to attract residents to vote for them. They had promoted themselves for a period of over 10 days, greeting everyone they met in the hall lobby and introducing themselves with small cute gifts for residents and gave them out in person.

As a resident of Hall 10, I went to MFH A and voted for PerfecTEN, the RA candidate for the new academic year. Such voting events reflect the democratic culture in Hong Kong universities to some extent. Every resident is given the equal right to choose to trust, distrust or abstain from voting.

During the Election Day, I interviewed a RA candidate from Hall 10, Stephanie CHEUK (General Secretary, PerfectTEN, Year 1, Biology & Chemistry). When asked why she chose to run the RA, she said: “Joining the RA is on my to-do list of university life. I want to do something for my hallmates. I want to gain firm friendships with other RA members. I want to prepare myself for future challenges by serving in the RA.”

Undoubtedly, the RA culture is one important components of hall culture which evolves over time. We have a high expectancy of the new RAs. Now that November has begun, let’s see what colorful memories we can create together!

你的宿舍裏一定有這樣一群人。他們為了豐富你的宿舍生活組織了各式活動;為了策劃更好的活動,提供更多福利而開會討論到深夜;每次見到你都熱情地打招呼。沒錯,他們就是宿生會(Hall莊),每座舍堂都有具備自己獨特風格和文化的Hall莊。

Hall莊選舉投票日在10月24日和25日的晚上於滿珍綜合禮堂(MFH A)舉行。幾乎每個人都舉著一個特制的宣傳板,想要吸引更多人去為他們投票。此前,他們已經在各自的Hall裏進行了超過十天的宣傳,給每個路過電梯大堂的宿生打招呼,介紹自己,並親自為他們送上宣傳品等等。

作為舍堂十的宿生,我自己也為Hall 10本屆候選宿生會「拾傳十」投了一票。像這樣的投票活動一定程度上彰顯了香港院校的民主文化氣息。每個宿生都有平等的權利,選擇是否信任該候選莊會或者棄權。

在投票期間,我採訪了舍堂十候選宿生會中的常務秘書候選人卓衍彤(生物及化學系一年級)。當被問到為什麽想要上Hall莊的時候,她回答說:「上Hall莊是我大學生活中的目標之一。我想為同住一個Hall的夥伴們做些實事,想收獲和其他宿生會成員的堅定友誼,想為我自己未來面對的更多挑戰做好準備。」

毫無疑問,宿生會文化構成了宿舍文化的重要一環,在每一屆的傳承中不斷豐富更新。我們對新一屆宿生會抱有很高的期待。讓我們對未來和宿舍會共同創造的美好回憶拭目以待!
