Graduation Ceremony is called Congregation in HKUST, and is super important

The 18th congregation is happening. All entrances and exits to the Atrium has been sealed off to fit a few hundred graduating students. What does that mean for us undergrads still seeking a degree and going to class? Massive detour. I never thought how vital the atrium is until it’s gone. All major paths between class, dorm, and out of the school disappeared. This doesn’t diminish the coolness of Congregation though. The band, instead of playing Pomp and Circumstances, blasted Star Wars and the Beetles. Oh yeah, HKUST gowns are also blue and gold!

A sea of blue and gold gowns blocked off the Atrium and all major pathways.
