I first came to The University of Hong Kong as a visitor, on the eve of the Second World War.

But it was in 1947 that I joined the University as a first-year Medical student. The classrooms, the library, the laboratories … are here at the Main Building. Spending all my days and nights here, it was like my home. 

HKU is always in my heart.

To build on our legacy of excellence, I invite you all to be an iGifter and I will send you a signature gift.
