“Looking back, the days I spent with them on the mountain has turned out to be the best time in my life.”

This was how Mr Mau Hou Cheong (02/COMM), the vocalist of a local band as well as the alumnus of United College, described the schooldays at the College in the “We Unite on the Mountain Top” video. Indeed, different stories are putting on stage every day on this mountain, which generate fond and unique memories to UCians over the past 65 years. We invite you to create a short video telling us your story! Make a short video of your UC times so that we can piece together the unforgettable moments we have had at the college!

We recommend the video to be filmed within 1 minute in length using simple video production equipment like smart phones! You can choose your own way of presentation like vlog, talk show, challenge, interviews, drama and so on. Give a full play to demonstrate your creativity while presenting your UC story!
