After the attending Hall Wardens and student Hall Officers were seated, the event began with a speech delivered by President of UIC, Prof Ng Ching-Fai. He started by recognising and praising the Hall Wardens and Hall Officers for their hard work, especially their efforts, which encouraged students to grow socially, culturally and emotionally. He also encouraged students to work on strengthening their interpersonal skills, and learn to manage their time, promote teamwork as well as improving their problem-solving ability.

The night continued with a speech from Vice President, Prof Zee Sze Yong. He emphasized the importance of being curious and passionate towards knowledge, and encouraged sharing knowledge with others. After the speeches, a Year One Finance student, Dong Yixuan, spoke and restated the importance of carrying forward each hall’s own hall culture and organizing a variety of inner-hall activities.
