Chung Chi College Labyrinth opens

The Office of Student Affairs (OSA) of CUHK and Chung Chi College held an opening ceremony of for its new Labyrinth on 10 October. As the first labyrinth found in the universities of Hong Kong, it provides a space for the campus community to relax their body and mind, as well as nurture their spirituality.

The ceremony was officiated by CUHK Pro-Vice-Chancellor Professor Nick Rawlins, Head of Chung Chi College Professor Kwan Mei-po, University Dean of Students Professor Ko Wing-hung, Chung Chi Dean of Students Professor Marques Ng Shek-nam, and designer of the Labyrinth Dr Han Man from the School of Architecture. It was witnessed by more than 50 teachers, staff and students of CUHK. After the ceremony, student participants were the first to experience the Labyrinth, led by Dr Lam Chi-shan, alumnus and chairman of the Hong Kong Labyrinth Society.

Located on the fourth floor of the Pommerenke Student Centre, the Labyrinth is a joint endeavour between the College and the OSA. It is a resting place for mindful walking. Unlike a maze, there is only one path that leads to both entrance and exit. Participants can focus on their breath, follow their footsteps, allow their thoughts to settle, return to their inner self and ultimately reconnect their body and mind.
