Every year, QHKSA host a wide variety of events, ranging from traditional Chinese cultural events such as Mid-Autumn Festival and Chinese New Year celebrations, to karaoke nights, sports tournaments, and other group outings. In addition, to facilitate the transition of first-year students to university life, we host the annual Countdown to Queen’s event in Hong Kong, offering advice and help to incoming students and parents; as well as encouraging first-years to attend the annual Queen’s send-off hosted by the Queen’s Hong Kong Alumni Association.
Queen’s Hong Kong Students’ Association is a cultural club established under the AMS here at Queen’s. Founded in 1999, QHKSA’s main objective is to create awareness of Hong Kong heritage at Queen’s and to foster better understanding between Hong Kong and other cultures within the community. We promote the Hong Kong culture, which is a marriage of the rich, Chinese heritage to the sophisticated English tradition, and offer students the opportunity to share their cultural similarities and to enhance friendships.
