LU Service Day 2024

In support of Lingnan University's motto "Education for Service", the Office of Student Affairs (OSA) partnered with student societies and dedicated students to organize a series of diverse service projects for LU Service Day.  Lingnan C.Connects and University YMCA (Lingnan University) collaborated to initiate and carry out seven service projects from February to April 2024.  These projects involved partnerships with various NGOs and local organisations, including Yu Meow Tong (屯門青磚圍遇貓堂), Fu Tai Neighbourhood Elderly Centre (鄰舍輔導會富泰鄰里康齡中心), Food Angel (惜食堂), and two centres under the Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong (香港中華基督教青年會), namely the Tuen Mun Centre (屯門會所) and the Brilliant Multicultural Centre (彩暉多元文化中心).  The participating students demonstrated exceptional leadership, adaptability, and creativity in designing and implementing these projects.

All seven service projects were successfully completed by 13 April, benefiting a wide range of individuals and animals. The beneficiaries included the elderly, children, ethnic minority youth, and people in need of food assistance.  Over 45 Lingnan student volunteers actively participated in these projects, positively impacting over 80 beneficiaries in the community.  The student volunteers received praise and appreciation from the beneficiaries and partnering NGOs.  They also found the projects to be meaningful and inspiring.  Through their engagement, they had the opportunity to interact with individuals from different backgrounds, enriching their experience of service and fostering empathy and compassion.  LU Service Day exemplifies the university spirit by empowering students to contribute to the betterment of society through dedicated efforts.

85% LU graduates employed despite a weak job market under COVID-19

Despite the weak economy and the shrinking job opportunities in the local job market due to COVID-19, 85% of our 2020 graduating cohort had received job offers as reported by the recent Graduate Employment Survey 2020. The number of graduate job postings and vacancies received, however, were comparatively 20% less than the previous year. With the Support Fund for 2020 Graduates, OSA’s Lingnan University Anti-adversity Graduate Employment and Training Programme was launched immediately in May 2020 to provide career assistance to fresh graduates looking for jobs, and subsidy to employers who had employed Lingnan fresh graduates. The average monthly salary is around HK$15,000 which is similar to last year, while the job hunting period was inevitably tougher as graduates required one to two additional months than before in receiving their first full-time job offer. Around 10% of our graduates continued to further their studies and 4.4% are still seeking for full-time jobs.
