College Orientation Camp  


At CUHK, we are proud of our unique college system that enriches our university experience.  Every summer, Orientation Camp Organizing Committee of each College organizes their own orientation camp with an aim to help new students develop a sense of belonging to the College they are affiliated to.  In the orientation camp, you will find out more about your college such as its culture and morals.  You will also meet new friends from the same College of different majors and year of study.  When the camp is over, your College will probably feel like a big family to you!
