To celebrate the 45th Anniversary of the Faculty of Social Sciences, a Fun Day was held on 26 November. To support this joyful occasion, the Department of Geography organized two homecoming activities for visitors: (i) a Detergent-making Workshop and (ii) an interactive game. In the evening, an alumni reunion dinner was held at the newly-renovated Renfrew Restaurant.
During the workshop held in the Physical Geography Laboratory, Dr. Chow demonstrated how to make environmentally-friendly detergent and visitors were given a small bottle of detergent as a souvenir.
An interactive game named ‘Where’re the places in the world?’ was set up in the Resource Centre. Visitors randomly chose three pictures from the pool of 30 world landscapes. If they could guess where these pictures were taken, they were given a departmental pin as a reward.
In the evening, an alumni reunion dinner was held at the newly-renovated Renfrew Restaurant. Over 90 guests, including staff, alumni and students gathered to celebrate this joyful and memorable event. It was an excellent opportunity for former students to reunite with their professors and fellow alumni. It also provided a chance for the “old” and “young” BU geographers to meet and intermingle.
