For New Students
Message from the Director of Student Affairs
Dear New Lingnanians,
A very warm welcome to you from all of us in the Office of Student Affairs (OSA)!
Entering university marks a new chapter in your life, but a good guide can help to plan and create a good new beginning. OSA is here to help orchestrate your plan. We can be your handy guide – providing you useful tips to your campus life as well as vital information about the plentiful resources and abundant opportunities that you could not miss, such as the New Student Orientation (NSO), financial assistance schemes, student hostels, community services, etc. This e-handbook will point you the right way to obtain further advice and support, plus opportunities and resources in creating a new adventure in your new home – Lingnan!
Lingnan, though small, is a very close and vibrant community. My colleagues and I are eager to introduce you to a series of diversified programmes based on “the Leader in Me” development model. In line with Lingnan’s liberal arts tradition, these activities will enrich your outside classroom learning, enhance your leadership competence in becoming a future leader, and empower you in achieving all-round excellence in academic and career pursuits.
In addition to this e-handbook, keep abreast of further updates and useful information about your studies, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, resources and support by checking your university email regularly, and respond and take necessary actions on a timely basis. Rest assured that you are in the care of a very supportive and welcoming team of student affairs professionals. So reach out to us if you have questions or need answers.
I trust that you will enjoy your time here, and sincerely wish you to have an enriching experience and an amazing journey in our beautiful home – Lingnan.
I look forward to greeting and meeting you soon on campus. Stay healthy and well!
Director of Student Affairs
