This year Lingnan University welcomed almost 1,000 new students, including local and non-local degree-seeking students, as well as exchange students, at the New Student Orientation on 24-26 August. About 220 senior students were recruited to serve as peer mentors to help organise the orientation and assist freshmen to adjust to university life.
A Campus Life Carnival was held at Wing On Plaza in the evening of 25 August. Student societies and university teams set up more than 50 booths to showcase their activities and team spirit. A great variety of performances was also staged to entertain the university community and celebrate the commencement of the new academic year.
