At the inauguration ceremony on 2 September, Prof. Joseph J.Y. Sung, CUHK Vice-Chancellor, exhorted the new undergraduates to live their university life in a simple, humble and noble manner. He also welcomed the new students from Hong Kong, the mainland and abroad who had earlier arrived on campus to orient themselves to their chosen disciplines and assigned Colleges. In fact, a new College, Wu Yee Sun, had its first 'checking-in' exercise this year. Heavy bags and suitcases on rollers were a common sight on campus in early September. Happy moving in!

Chinese medicine is both art and science, and it is insular to neither modern scientific theories nor western medical practice. In 'Thus Spake…', Prof. Albert W.N.

He will also give his advice to those who are considering a career in Chinese medicine.
