The students on our external 2008 Hong Kong case competition team are:
- Sagar Gupta
- Sean Huang
- Jimmy Shi
- Wei Li
The advisor accompanying our team is Ms. Janet Amador, Director of Admissions and Operations for the Haas Undergraduate Program.
Our arrival to Hong Kong was thankfully uneventful. The weather at 6:05 in the morning was 79 degrees and 90% humidity. It was quiet, warm and stuffy. We had our transportation to the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) waiting for us, and the 50 minute drive was great. The Kowloon and Hong Kong areas are rich with new and old architecture. The skyline is filled with tall skyscrapers, and the apartment complexes are close to the city. We were lucky to get here early and to meet up with our student ambassador, Vishal. He is a 4th year student at HKUST.
We decided to walk around this beautiful seaside campus, what a view! The white buildings are nestled into the mountains and sea is right below. The team decided to go out shopping. According to their report upon their return they found some great bargains.
In the evening we met up with Nicole who is an EAP student from Cal studying here for the term. She joined us for dinner. Vishal came too so we had a fun group together to celebrate our arrival in Hong Kong.
