While delivering a speech at the ceremony, Head of Student Affairs Office Wong Ka Weng recognized outstanding student associations and reminded those that did not perform as well as expected to make efforts to improve. At the same time, she mentioned that Student Affairs Office had conducted a questionnaire survey on the qualifications and status of in-service leading members of the Student Union in early April. It shows that most students believed that joining the association would cultivate interpersonal relationships, sense of responsibility, leadership and collaborative ability. Eighty percent of the students' initial intention to participate in the association was basically realized. Among the options of serving students, 30% of students rated themselves as not good enough. For the overall performance of the Student Union, 50% of the students said that the Student Union had made progress but had not developed completely, and about 20% said that the Student Union needed to improve. In this regard, she put forward four suggestions to the students and expounded them: First, to cultivate a sense of responsibility. Second, to attach importance to team work and to improve the quality of activities. Third, to maintain physical and mental health. Fourth, to know how to make good use of time to promote learning. Student Affairs Office and the University will work together to build a practice platform for extracurricular activities for students and support the healthy development of student associations.
