S.H. Ho College, one of the five new Colleges of CUHK, officially opened on 28 October. The ceremony was officiated by Dr. Vincent H.C. Cheng, Chairman of the Council, CUHK; Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung, Vice-Chancellor and President, CUHK; Dr. Ho Tzu-leung, chairman of the Committee of Overseers, S.H. Ho College and Governor of The S.H. Ho Foundation; and Prof. Samuel Sun, Master of S.H. Ho College. Representatives of three exchange partners of the College—Brown University, Cambridge University, Peking University—were also present.


The plaque-unveiling ceremony for the four main buildings of the College, namely, Ho Sin Hang Hall, Ho Tim Hall, Lee Quo Wei Hall and Chan Chun Ha Hall, was also held. Ho Tim Hall and Lee Quo Wei Hall are student hostels, Chan Chun Ha Hall, an administrative and student amenities building, and Ho Sin Hang Hall, a multi-purpose hall. Dr. David Ho, chairman of The S.H. Ho Foundation, explained that his beloved father Dr. Ho Sin-hang worked closely with Dr. Ho Tim, Dr. Lee Quo-wei and Mr. Chan Chun-ha to develop Hang Seng Bank. Having the buildings named in honour of these gentlemen may be the best way for their partnership and benevolence to be perpetuated.


At the opening ceremony, Professor Sung, Vice-Chancellor, said, ‘S.H. Ho College was built on the concept of a home and I hope all the students will grow in a caring and friendly atmosphere full of hope and a sense of belonging.’ On the same occasion, benefactors planted four osmanthus fragrans (sweet olive trees) with the hope that students, like the trees, will grow in the congenial community.
