A few words were also said about the University of Science and Technology.

Back when I was applying through JUPAS, my choice to attend HKUST wasn't influenced by Paulie. sports science I didn't attend their college information open day for students, so I wasn't certain if it would be a good fit for me academically and socially. The only thing I knew about it was its location in Hung Hom. Despite attending two open days at HKUST, I didn't find the atmosphere very appealing - it seemed impressive but lacked depth. Ultimately, due to not passing my college entrance exam, I ended up pursuing a Poly HD course and have since completed my studies.

As an individual deeply rooted in Poly Property, I am truly impressed with its overall excellence. This university stands out among the three main universities, holding its own against the likes of City University. One noteworthy quality is the strong sense of unity experienced on campus, something rare in Hong Kong where university grounds tend to be compact. Even renowned institutions like Hong Kong University have sacrificed spaciousness for new structures such as Lixin Hall, medical school, and gymnasium. However, at Poly Property, one can easily take a short bus ride or a 10-15 minute walk from their dormitory to access these facilities. There are also numerous dining options nearby that are worth trying out. Furthermore, Ho Man Tin's New Hall is just a stone's throw away from convenience stores, canteens and computer rooms. In sum, everything is conveniently located within easy reach for students at Poly Property.

As a student, I have a tendency to procrastinate when it comes to reading. As soon as school starts, there's a cacophony of noise- some students bustling around, others trying to cram in their reading before dinner. Ultimately, our own self-discipline plays the biggest role in our reading habits. Of course, the impact of teachers cannot be ignored. They hold great influence over our learning experience- some with unwavering dedication, others with sheer laziness (we all know who I mean), and some tutors that drive us crazy. But that's alright. I trust that my preparation for college will not disappoint. After class, I head straight to the library where my self-study skills come into play. With countless books and computers at our disposal until 11 pm, and 24 review rooms available throughout the night, there's always something new to discover or delve into at the library. Putting in hard work and taking advantage of these resources is crucial for survival because let's be honest- getting into college was no easy achievement for me! (oooh)

In addition to focusing on internships, Paulie has created a special WIE to help students evaluate them. Students are usually responsible for paying for internships arranged by their university, or looking for part-time jobs related to their courses, and then calculating the number of hours they worked. If you plan to graduate, it is important that you pay attention to whether you did 100 or 200 hours. I am not sure whether mainland students will be required to solve this.

The dining hall offers a variety of dishes, including traditional and cultural options. Unfortunately, Block Z is currently unavailable, so let's shift our attention to the old pot, which is now managed by Maxim's. It should be noted that Maxim's has been granted exclusive rights to operate the HKU restaurant and they have made some changes to the flavor of City AC1. Their afternoon tea set with the old pot as the main attraction comes highly recommended and is also affordable at just 20 yuan. Additionally, there are other budget-friendly options such as spaghetti with scrambled eggs and toast or fried chicken legs and chips. For dinner, I personally enjoy the 26-piece fast food selection on the far right as well as the Lamian Noodles on the far left. Another must-try is their barbecued pork rice, which has been compared among universities - with Poly's version receiving high praise! Speaking of new restaurants, an alumni-owned establishment has recently opened and it is worth checking out for students looking for a new dining experience.

When discussing campus life, mainland students are not hesitant to participate. I recall the Mainland Students' Federation, a dedicated organization that aims to recruit and organize new mainland students. This allows them to quickly adapt to university life and take part in welcoming activities. The club is comprised entirely of senior mainland students. During registration day, there are numerous helpers on campus who assist freshmen with registration, obtaining student ID cards, applying for student union cards, providing campus tours, and more. Interested individuals can sign up for Big O and Middle O camps or visit the gym's booth to register for other social camps. These traditional welcome activities usually come with a cost of a few hundred dollars each. It's common for local students to sign up for these events before classes begin. Additionally, it's important to make friends and have dinner together after class! For mainland students who may not be familiar with this terminology, they can reach out to the Mainland Health Association. As someone from Shenzhen myself, I had a great time - hehe! However, please be cautious of people posing as helpers who may try to pressure you into registering for unrecognized Ocamps on registration day. If you feel uncomfortable or suspicious about their intentions, simply ignore them as they may

People don't want to spray.
