在嶺南LIFE學習的光陰,一眨眼就過去了。記得當初剛加入LIFE時,只是單純為了提高學歷而來到這個地方。後來,在這裡,我認識到各位來自不同學科的老師,大家都非常和靄可親。除了專注傳授課堂知識外,也很願意用「說故事」的方式分享自身的經歷,務求為我們的人生帶來一些啟發。另外,參加暑期實習也令我獲益良多,這提供了我一個好機會走出舒適圈,嘗試一些從未遇過的挑戰,上司和同事的建議也讓我對未來的方向更清晰。總括而言,很感激這個地方讓我有了很大的成長!

”No pain no gain”. During the two years of my studies at LIFE, I have met a lot of teachers and friends. I am very fortunate to have such a good learning environment, which allows me to improve myself steadily. The Associate Degree programme is different from those in secondary school with a teacher to guide you all the time. Since we will encounter
difficulties and problems, we should not be shy to ask for advice from teachers and classmates. We can learn from anyone. We can learn from the people around us to improve ourselves. We have to keep learning and achieve excellent results. Thank you to every teacher and classmate I have met in LIFE in the past two years. All of you made me grow up and made me who I am today.

在這兩年的校園生活中,很慶幸可以認識到一班良師益友。無論有什麼問題,老師都會詳細的幫我解答。老師們不僅負責,還很幽默,有時上課會講一些笑話來豐富課程, 當學生遇到課程內外的問題也都樂意幫忙,他們會主動關心學生是否跟得上進度,我可以感受到他們想幫助每一個學生的熱情。現在,即使我畢業了, 老師們也會關心我的近況並提供建議。畢業不到半年,便開始懷念嶺南LIFE的生活、朋友和老師。在此,感謝所有老師的教導。

I am pleased to study at LIFE. I have acquired not only the knowledge from the books, but also whole-person development. LIFE provides us with a lot of activities and resources to build up our experience. I have joined the rowing team which makes me stronger and more mature. Lots of thanks to the lecturers who put so much effort in helping me get into the university!
