The University of Texas at Austin Hong Kong Alumni Reception was held on June 21, 2018 in the Taishan Room of Island Shangri-La, Hong Kong. The event is part of a series of gatherings of our university’s management with its alumni in six cities in Asia.
We were fortunate to have President Gregory Fenves, Dean of McCombs School of Business Jay Hartzell, and Dean of the Graduate School (and former Olympian in fencing) Mark Smith coming to Hong Kong for the reception. It is heard that some alumni in other Asian cities were jealous that we could meet the President while they did not have the chance.
The event officially started with a short speech by our Chief Administrator Victor K. Nip to introduce Hong Kong Texas Exes and President Gregory L. Fenves to the attendees. Then Presidents Fenves delivered his special remarks to the crowd. Dean Jay Hartzell and Dean Mark Smith then gave their speeches. Afterwards, the attendees had more than an hour to talk to the Presidents and the Deans and mingle among themselves. Attendees were given a souvenir UT bag which they happily took home.
About 80 guests including many alumni whom we could not reach out to were there. It easily became the biggest UT event in Hong Kong ever.
