About 150 students from 16 primary schools in Tuen Mun visited Lingnan University on 18 February to have a taste of university life. They met some local and overseas students, sat in a lecture on “Introduction to Business” and joined a campus tour.
The lecture, given by Ms Moureen Tang Mo-lin, Senior Lecturer of the Department of Management, provided an integrated view of business with a regional emphasis as well as a comprehensive and balanced overview of the interwoven nature of basic business disciplines and principles. It was followed by a campus visit covering the library, gymnasium and hostels.
Jointly organised by Lingnan’s Student Services Centre, Tuen Mun District Youth Programme Committee and Tuen Mun District Council, the visit was part of an award scheme for Tuen Mun primary school students with outstanding performance in 2013/14. Mr Kwu Hon-keung, Chairman of the Tuen Mun District Youth Programme Committee and Prof Lee Hung-kai, Associate Vice-President (Student Affairs) of Lingnan University, were invited to give welcoming remarks. Mr Kwu expressed his gratitude to Lingnan and all the participating primary schools in Tuen Mun for their support of the one-day visit to Lingnan University, which was organised for the third consecutive year. During the visit, the students got to know more about Lingnan University’s study and hostel life, which might help them set more concrete goals for their university studies. Prof Lee remarked that the visit provided an opportunity for Lingnan students to serve the community by organising campus tours for the primary school students. “Service-learning is an essential part of campus life at Lingnan. We shall continue to work with different parties to organise meaningful activities for nurturing young people for Hong Kong,” he said.
