Year-long Golden Jubilee celebrations reached their climax just before the cold front roared into town.

For a university the size of CUHK, festivities take on different forms. Academic exchanges, a magnificent banquet, a show watched by audience seated on the floor, donations and construction commemorating benefactors … all left their imprint on the history of the Chinese University.

As 2013 draws to a close, if your taste for nostalgia triggered by the 50th anniversary celebrations is still lingering, why not saunter over to the newly unveiled University Gallery? Historic and historical artefacts representing the University's development in the last half-century are quietly awaiting your appreciation.

Outside the festivities, the University honoured at its 75th Congregation those who have contributed to the well-being of society. They included overseas and mainland scholars, a local businessman and an artist. In this issue of 'Thus Spake …', Prof. Jane Jackson , recipient of the Exemplary Teaching Award in 2009, and, more recently, the University Education Award, speaks. It's owing partly to educators like her who day after day, year after year, explore ways to improve their teaching, that the University can fulfil its mission of education.
