For New Students
Welcome Message from the Office of Student Affairs
Welcome to Lingnan University!
As a global leader in quality education*, we strive to bring to you supreme whole-person learning experience so as to facilitate your attainment of desirable development and personal goals. This “e-Handbook for Undergraduate Freshmen” showcases an array of programmes, services, facilities and support specially designed for you to get a taste of the Lingnan University’s distinctive liberal arts education.
Besides academic pursuit, you are highly encouraged to participate in a vast range of activities such as serving as an office-bearer of different student societies to sharpen your leadership skills, taking part in community services to exert a positive impact to society, and getting prepared for your future career. Residential education, one of the hallmarks of student development, also provides a favourable living-learning community for you to maximise your engagement in multi-cultural, social innovation, and global humanistic aspects.
Throughout your years at Lingnan University, the Office of Student Affairs will offer and introduce to you bountiful opportunities, including the aforesaid ones, for out-of-classroom learning. We aim to set the path to nurture responsible and caring leaders who will play spearheading roles in improving the well-being of the entire human race. To this end, we endeavour to help you plan ahead and seize every chance to equip yourself, to capably address novel situations and unstructured problems, and to communicate effectively in academic and social settings to achieve all-round excellence.
I hope you will enjoy the new chapter of living on this mutually supportive campus. Rest assured you are in good hands with our trustworthy team of professional staff members and all the enthusiastic peer mentors!
