[USFHK Annual Athletic Meet] LU athlete won the bronze medal
The 59th USFHK Annual Athletic Meet was held on 25 April 2021 at Joint Sports Centre. Lee Wing In (Year 2 of the Higher Diploma in Sports Coaching and Leadership), the member of Lingnan University Track and Field team, won the second runner-up in the Women's 800m with the time of 2min 28sec. Lee Wing In was satisfied with her performance in this competition. "Since the level of the USFHK competition is high, I do not have confidence to win the competition. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the number of my training sessions were reduced recently, and I could only practice more in the last month. So, I am happy to have achieved this result," said Lee Wing In. Moreover, she thanked Lingnan University and her coaches, Chan Ka Chun and Yuen Hon Ting, for their teaching.
Secondary school principals visited Lingnan
The Office of Student Affairs was happy to meet with the principals from the four schools of Caritas, including Caritas Wu Cheng-chung Secondary School, Caritas St Joseph Secondary School, Caritas Ma On Shan Secondary School, and Caritas Chan Chun Ha Field Studies Centre. They enjoyed the visit and the meeting with students in understanding better how we had supported them in hostel education, leadership & professional training, career development, and especially the wellness & caring supports under the current challenging environment. It was our pleasure to have their visit and the opportunity to allow our guests in experiencing the value of liberal arts education. Moving forward, Lingnan Univerity will be a resource of student mentors in helping to empower the development of their secondary school students on various aspects, and a trusted partner in serving the community together.
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.
