"Being an exchange student to Hong Kong Polytechnic University was the best experience of my life. There is no other place where you can feel so engaged with a culture so different from your own, while feeling so welcomed and a part of everything. I highly recommend this experience to anyone in Fashion and Apparel Studies!"  Carmela Dow

​"My semester in Hong Kong was a once in a lifetime opportunity because I got the chance to experience another culture while making friends from all over the world. My perspective was widened and I feel so lucky to have had a semester to go outside of my comfort zone and grow immensely. The relationships I formed are lasting and I will never forget my travels to Hong Kong and Asia. HKPU gave me an opportunity to take advantage of many textile technology classes and learn from various teaching styles, making me a more well-rounded student".  Abigail Siegal

"Hong Kong opened my eyes to a new culture and a deeper understanding of the fashion industry, but my favorite part of my semester was meeting so many new people from around the world who have now become lifelong friends".  Joan Loporte
