On 6 November, it was the pulsating stage on which hundreds of dancers from different schools swayed, jived and gyrated in the Joint University Mass Dance 2015. For once, the Mall was not easy to negotiate, for one’s pace was inevitably slowed by the sight of droves of twisting and turning dancers. We talked to members of the CUHK Modern Dance Society which played host that day. W.B. Yeats asked, ‘How can we know the dancer from the dance?’ Less philosophically, we ask our readers to meet the dancers from CUHK and their dances. On 19 November, the gold-canopied University Mall staged the 78th Congregation to confer degrees on thousands of fresh graduates and welcome their friends and families. For twice, the Mall was not easy to negotiate, for one was overwhelmed by the sea of jubilant school leavers. Also in this issue, Suki Lau ( photo ), second-year student in cultural management, gives her viva voce on how she came up close to some canine dishes in Yulin, Guangxi and came back an animal rights campaigner. Linguistic changes are part of the life of a living language. The linguist among our staff has no easy answer, but offers up a few examples of how meanings can change haphazardly. 4 • 12 • 2015 目錄 CONTENTS 2 特寫 Feature 舞動校園 A Dancing Campus 4 特寫 Feature 第七十八屆頒授學位典禮 78th Congregation for the Conferment of Degrees 5 . . . 校園消息 Campus News 6 財金淺趣 Financially Friendly 6 說東道西 7 宣布事項 Announcements 8 口談實錄 Viva Voce Photo by ISO staff 加入中大現代舞蹈學會才兩個多月的新鮮人,舞出熱情(頁2) The infectious moves of the Modern Dance Society’s freshman members who only joined two months ago (p. 2) 如果動物能說話 (頁8) If Animals Could Talk ( p. 8 ) Photo by ISO staff 起舞吧!
