Dear New Lingnanian,
A very warm welcome to you from all of us in the Student Services Centre (SSC)!
Entering university marks a new chapter in your life, but a good guide can help to plan and create a good new beginning. SSC 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 hostel, 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!
Due to the COVID-19 situation, the University has to adopt real-time online teaching mode for the first term. Though we are not able to meet face-to-face now, my colleagues and I will gladly 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 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 services 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 once the pandemic situation is resolved. Stay healthy and well!
Director of Student Services
