UG Get-Togethers
Activities | UG Get-Togethers
The UG Get-Together is sponsored by the Dr. Karen Lee Memorial Fund and provides an opportunity for faculty, staff advisors and students to mix and mingle in a relaxed environment with the objective to strengthen a culture of care in undergraduate student mentoring. These gatherings are open drop-in, allowing students to ‘take a break’ from their studies and enjoy a friendly chit chat with faculty and staff and among themselves with no set agenda.

BBA ACCT, Year 1
UG Get-together allows me to know more people in SBM - students, professors, and the people working behind the scenes: the staffs! The setting of this event is much more casual than a class setting, enabling the students to know the staffs and faculties in a more personal way. Overall, it is very nice to chat, laugh, and snack together with the people in SBM!

UG Get-Togethers are the perfect opportunity to make friends! These special events have everything needed to start a conversation, including food, drinks, and sofas where you can relax, have fun and communicate with fellow students and professors. At the gatherings, I made friends from all over the globe! As a freshman, I am surprised at all the different nationalities. Nevertheless, I like to be in this great society, surrounded by these brilliant people.
BBA ACCT, Year 2
I think the most unforgettable events during my first year in HKUST is the UG Get-Together. All the students and professors could come to have a cozy afternoon tea. Through this activity I get to know more friends who I haven’t know the name before, I also have chance to chat with different professors. It reduces the distance between students and teachers.
