Lingnan University resumes face-to-face teaching and learning in the new semester. President Prof Leonard K Cheng, together with senior management members Vice-President Prof Joshua Mok Ka-ho, Associate Vice-President (Academic Affairs and External Relations) Prof Lau Chi-pang, Associate Vice-President (Student Affairs) Prof Li Donghui and the Comptroller Mr Woo Chun-tung, greeted students on campus on 1 September. They also gave pocket hand sanitisers to students encouraging them to fight against the pandemic together.
To help new students integrate into campus life and meet new friends, the University organises virtual seminars, library and campus introductions, as well as networking opportunities with senior students and university staff from August to September.
President Cheng encouraged freshmen to embrace the unique liberal arts journey on campus. “Lingnan is a top liberal arts university in Asia, with emphasis on student development and community engagement. Apart from pursuing academic knowledge, I encourage you to seize every opportunity to join the experiential learning and social engagement activities offered by our academic departments and units as well as academic support offices. Go and discover the vibrant arts and culture activities on our campus and enjoy the special moments with your peer residents in your hostels as some of them may turn out to be your lifelong friends,” he said.
Despite the uncertainties associated with the COVID pandemic, President Cheng said the University remains optimistic that campus activities can be fully resumed in the near future. “As the academic term progresses, we will continue to review the teaching and learning arrangements to ensure that you will receive the best possible learning experiences,” he added.
