Alumni Homecoming Day 2018
Alumni Homecoming Day, an important annual event for all Lingnanians, was held on 7 and 8 July. It provides a valuable opportunity for alumni of Lingnan to spend a wonderful weekend on campus together.
This year, the event attracted more than 600 alumni and their families and friends to join. With the theme of “Lingnan Reunion”, the University hopes that Lingnanians graduated in different years can gather and enjoy the various homecoming activities during their two-day stay.
The participants stayed at one of the three hostels, including The Jockey Club New Hall, Wong Hoo Chuen Hall and Wu Jieh Yee Hall. A wide variety of activities was arranged, including DIY workshops, snack and ice-cream redemption, sports activities and dessert tasting. The DIY workshops were well received as participants could learn and work together with their families and friends to create different kinds of handicrafts. There were also game booths, handicraft booths and food kiosks. Adults and kids had great fun at the two game booths hosted by Lingnan University Alumni Association (Hong Kong) and Lingnan University Business Administration Alumni Association.
Besides, the Leung Fong Oi Wan Art Gallery drew together all cat lovers who took pictures in front of the Lingnan cats-themed backdrops. In the evening of the first day, participants of the exciting mass game “It’s GAME Time!” competed vigorously for the championship among the five games.
The Homecoming banquet, with overwhelming response, was held in both the Tai Ning Hall (Student Canteen) and Lingnan House this year. The banquet kicked off with a warm welcome by Vice-President Joshua MOK Ka-Ho, followed by Dr Louisa LAM Mei-Chun, Chief Information Officer and Librarian who introduced the University’s latest mobile application “LU Mobile” that allows alumni to stay connected with their alma mater easily. It was then followed by the Dance Society’s performance, and the banquet was concluded with an exciting quiz game which brought the atmosphere to the climax.
