Get to know more about HKBU’s bright and up-and-coming developments and join our campus tours featuring two routes, each of which focusing on one of the major areas the University is booming: Chinese medicine (route 1) and art-tech (route 2). On top of the specific focus, all routes cover BU’s important landmarks that contribute to alumni’s memory as well as significant new infrastructures that shed light on the University’s strategic developments. They include the Chapel, AC Hall, the BU Bridge, TriAngle (HKBU’s efforts to develop social innovation), and BU Market (our University’s convictions for inclusion and diversity), among others. Some of these spots are newly added to this year’s campus tour – come join us!
