Alumni Activities

The 2016 Summer Internship Program is the second project that is launched under the Linganian Partnership Scheme.  It will be jointly organized by Lingnan University Alumni Association Hong Kong (LUAA) and Lingnan University to line up internship partners and students of high calibre.  We are proud that many of our alumni are specialists in different professions, self-employed, or holding senior positions in the commercial world. 

The main objective of this program is to extend Lingnan students’ all-round competence in the real working environment under the leadership and guidance from our experienced alumni. It is expected that this program will motivate more alumni to get in touch with their junior brothers and sisters in Lingnan and, as a result, to unite most if not all Lingnanians to work together for the betterment of Lingnan education and its image. 

The latest issue of Lingnan Connections is now published. The online version is available at http://www.ln.edu.hk/oiaaa/alumni/publications/connections. Enjoy reading!
