“Because of the liberal arts educators at Lingnan, I experienced a quantum leap in my whole-person development during my undergraduate years. Now as a higher education teacher myself, I hope that I will be able to help my current students in the way I was nurtured by nice and patient role-models at my alma mater.”

It also helps you develop into a cheerful and likable person.”

“I was blessed with inspiring teachers. They taught me to extend empathy to communities overlooked by society. They taught me to face trials with composure and dignity. Most of all, I was shown that the pursuit of knowledge, though exciting and noble, is meaningless unless we learn to become good people.”

Cecilia Chan, MPhil Translation

“Never have I imagined in my life that I would belong to a liberal arts community with accessible professors, helpful staff, and friendly students. Apart from academic activities, talking to friends from different countries, doing service-learning, and leaving my comfort zone by joining Toastmasters are so far the most remarkable parts of my journey in Lingnan.”
