LAI Wanting, Major in Economics.

Excellent Social Sciences Student Award, 2022-23AY


"Being a student in social sciences as well as liberal arts, an essential quality that we should engage in is curiosity about the world and caring for society and the community. Majoring in Economics, I was taught so much about the world from the perspective of economics and politics, psychology, and sociology. I have always wanted to be a person that can do something to change people around me, help the community, and even make this world a better place, using the knowledge that I gain and the tool that I have."

Ms. ZHANG Jingyi

ZHANG Jingyi, Major in Psychology.

Excellent Social Sciences Student Award, 2021-2022AY


"I always believe that the learning of knowledge and ability and the improvement of personal qualities cannot only rely on textbooks and classes, but also on all aspects of campus life. It is under the influence of this understanding that I have been participating in various campus activities throughout my four years of university life, striving to enhance my knowledge and ability in this way, and to put my understanding of the spirit of social science and liberal arts education into concrete practice."
