Below is a brief introduction to your hall life at Wei Lun in the near future.
Jo is a term you'll learn to understand and love upon your entry into university. As you'll be sorted into various groups during your hall orientation camp and led by your joba joma (組爸組媽) and core helpers, your jo will be the starting point to your hall life and the first contact point of your new family at Wei Lun Hall. Throughout the orientation camp, you’ll grow with this group of people and learn more about the hall culture and about various aspects of your upcoming hall life together with the help of currents. Most hallmates will experience their first Jocha (飲早茶) with their groups, this is a very unique culture to HKU, where students go to eat dim sum at an authentic Hong Kong style restaurant at Kennedy Town early in the morning. This is just one of the many activities you’ll do with your jo, but the biggest takeaway from your jo is that this group of people will grow to become some of your best friends in your university life, who will be at your side through thick and thin, bringing joy and memorable moments to your life at HKU.
