“Super Pass”

“Super Pass”

How time flies! As the semester is drawing to an end, we are sure that all the undergraduates are busy preparing for final exams and aiming for a super GPA. To wish you the best of luck, the Block A Student Activities Committee prepared a “Super Pass” event according to a tradition of HKU students. Students carve a full pig for sharing in the wish of good luck in exams for each other. They also wrote fai chun(揮春) to document the best wishes and preserve them in their memories!
