The ideas behind these study tours were to broaden students’ horizon, to encourage them thinking out of the box and to bring back new ideas to HKU. Student participants did get new ideas from these trips and initiated activities to tackle the problems inside the hall community, for example discussions in forums, joint-hall activities, online publication about hall education and promotion of HKU halls to secondary school students.
