In his address to the class of 2019 graduates during the ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor Prof. Rocky Tuan congratulated the graduates on achieving a new milestone in life, placed emphasis on embracing diversity and inclusion when serving the community, and encouraged the graduates to maintain a positive outlook through recognizing success in challenging times.
In his speech, he remarked, “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you are happy doing what you are doing, you will succeed. Always remember that. You start out with happiness, then you will succeed. Life is a continuous one… Do not be deterred by any failures you have today, and also, very importantly, never be content with whatever success you have today because life goes on. ”
The Congregation Ceremony for the Conferment of Degrees is one of the highlighted events at the CUHK and is cherished by faculty members, staff, students, alumni, and parents.
