Lingnan University organised the Naming Ceremony of Mr and Mrs Tung Choi Hing Study Room today (8 February) in appreciation of the support of Mr and Mrs Tung Chung Ho to the University.
Sponsored by Lingnan’s Faculty of Business, a group of 20 business undergraduate students visited Taiwan for a 4-day study tour from 2 to 5 January.
Lingnan has extended its global network with the establishment of new agreements on academic cooperation with the School of Management Economics and Law, Fontys University of Applied Sciences in the Netherlands, Ryukoku University in Japan, Pforzheim University in Germany, Universidad Pontificia Comillas in Spain and Emlyon Business School in France in January.
Fu Tei Bookstore, officially launched in February last year and operated by Lingnan University’s student volunteers, focuses on promoting knowledge and nurturing literary and arts culture in the community. With the motto of “Promote Knowledge‧Encourage Reading‧Nurture Literature and Arts”, it aims to advocate critical thinking and active learning. Despite the bookstore’s young establishment, Chen Pui-hing (Philosophy Year 4), Founder and Chairman of Fu Tei Bookstore’s Management Committee and his fellow teammates Ting Cham-yin (Philosophy Year 3) and Ng Wing-si (Cultural Studies Year 4) have decided to step forward to initiate a new project “Promotion Campaign of Critical Thinking in Community” last October with sponsorship from Tuen Mun Yan Oi Tong.
