Founded in 1982, Brown University’s Hong Kong Students Association provides a home for students from Hong Kong studying abroad. We also seek to provide a platform for individuals interested in learning about Hong Kong society and culture. Furthermore, we seek to promote diversity and free cultural expression within the College Hill community.
Our recent events include lectures by Anita Chan, the New York Hong Kong Economic Trade Office Director, a student panel focusing on their experiences in the diaspora, calligraphy nights, an exhibition of 19th century prints of Hong Kong at the John Hay Library, as well as our food events, such as cooking nights and Boston dim sum trips
