A wide variety of cultural events are organized each year to nurture students' interests in new things and ability to appreciate different culture. For example, students can have a taste of Spanish, French and German culture through cooking class, language activity, movie night, etc.
In order to broaden students’ horizon and bring in new perspectives, the College invited alumni who are currently studying or working overseas to share their path and stories. It is hoped that students could get some inspiration from our alumni.
