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.

LU Service Day 2020-21

In support of Lingnan University’s motto “Education for Service”, Office of Student Affairs coordinates with volunteer-service related student societies and devoted students, including Lingnan C.Connects, Lingnan Wofoo Leaders’ Network and University YMCA (Lingnan University), to organize service projects in LU Service Day. With concerted effort and devotion among students, six service projects had been initiated in this year and they did span from February to March 2021. The NGOs that the student teams were in cooperation with included the Chinese YMCA of Hong Kong Chai Wan Neighbourhood Elderly Centre (香港中華基督教青年會柴灣長者鄰舍中心), Evangelical Lutheran Church Social Services – Hong Kong (Tung Mun Integrated Youth Service Centre) (基督教香港信義會社會服務部屯門青少年綜合服務中心), New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association – The Wellness Centre (Tuen Mun) (新生精神康復會 – 安泰軒 (屯門)), C. & M.A. Yuen Kei Family Service Centre (宣道會元基家庭服務中心) and the Yuen Long Church (Church of Christ in China) Chow Sung Chu Oi Youth Centre (中華基督教會元朗堂周宋主愛青年中心). Under the threat of COVID-19 pandemic while traditional face-to-face format of community services may not be desirable, students have exerted their flexibility and creativity in designing and conducting the various service projects via online means.

All six service projects were successfully concluded by 27 March 2021 and a wide range of beneficiaries have been cared for, which ranged from the elderly, teenagers, primary school children as well as the people who are in the recovery of mental illnesses. A total of 60 Lingnan volunteers had participated in these service projects and contributed their parts in caring for 100+ beneficiaries in the community. In addition to the very positive feedback received from the beneficiaries and the partnering NGOs, it is encouraging that the participating Lingnan volunteers also found the service projects very meaningful and inspiring while they were interacting with people from different walks of life.

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.
