致2014年入读香港大学的同学-生活与学习经验谈

原文首发于寄托天下

时光飞逝,一年的硕士课程已经结束。回想起去年8月底匆匆来到校园便迅速投入紧张的学习,乃至在整个秋季学期我都无暇探索这所百年名校。直至春季学期,渐次适应了新生活,广泛结交本地本人朋友和资深的HKUer(必须至少从本科开始港大就读),对这所学校才有那么些许的认知,蓦然发现自己白白浪费了许多资源。转念一想,一年时间何其短暂,能对港大乃至香港达至这般程度的认识已属不易。回想当年还在读本科的年代,自己大一的时候对自己的母校仍旧懵懵懂懂。

相信绝大多数看这篇文章的朋友都即将在2014年9月开启一年制硕士学习,毕竟现在校园里面讲普通话的人几乎占一半,而且基本都是来读硕士的。短暂的一年,时间宝贵不在话下,希冀拙文能帮助诸位早日适应新生活,善用学校的庞大资源,充分享受这一年的时光。

前言

和国内多数重点高校相比,港大这座建在半山坡上的百年老校实在是太小了。在百周年校园( Centennial Campus)于2013年全面启用前,主校园(Main Campus)真可用“麻雀学校”来形容。当然,在寸土寸金的香港,除了香港中文大学(CUHK)和香港科技大学(HKUST) 能够霸占一整座山头般大的区域外,其余6所高校的校园面积均小得可怜。也正因为土地有限,建设者在规划方面倒是颇费心思,个中细节的精彩之处,实非国内任何高校(哪怕是清华北大)堪比。

1. 学习、运动场所和相关资源。

能够进入港大的同学,学习都不会差,以前到教室上自习的时间应该少不了,估计其中还有占座达人。不知如今的校园风气如何,至少在我10年前读本科得年代,占座相当普遍,也最让我深恶痛绝的行为之一。占着茅坑不拉屎惹人厌。港大却较好地解决了这个问题。

这里所有地课室只用于教学,不开放给学生上自习,只有在上课前一刻才开门,大家不需要提早太多到课室。许多课都是十几二十人的小班教学,也不存在抢前几排地问题。当然,也有些学院(Faculty)会开设上百人的大课。

那么自习在哪里呢?据我观察,校园内的公共学习区域一般有三种:图书馆、智华馆( Chi Wah Learning Common)和课室外的公共学习区域。另外,各个 Faculty, School, Department, Centre 也一般会为自己的学生开设仅供“内部人士”使用的学习空间或者实验室。当然,住宿舍(Hall) 的同学还可以在自己房间内或者每层的公共空间学习。因此,总体来说,学习设施是非常充足的。只有在考试月头两周的白天会出现一座难求的情况,而那个时候学校管理方也会对长时间占座的违规行为加强执法,确保公平。这种管理水平和国内高校相比不可同年而语。 184 more words

Back to School!

It’s officially the end of the first week of classes, which means that I’m officially a senior in college all set to graduate in May. I haven’t decided whether I’m more terrified or excited to be this close to graduation, but I’m sure I’ll figure that out as the next two semesters go buy. 170 more words
