Mentor Group 學長組

The Mentor Group is composed of dedicated alumni of CUHK living in Northern California who are willing and ready to organize activities for the summer or exchange students coming from CUHK to study in Northern California and to provide them with assistance/advice on non-academic matters, with the objective of enabling the students to reap the most benefit from their study/stay here in USA, and to find timely solution to problems the students may face. All mentors work as volunteers.

Mentors assigned to take care of students at specific universities are as follows:

UC-Berkeley: Paul Lee, paullee45 (at) gmail.com
UC-Davis: Patrick Leung, psleung (at) ucdavis.edu
UC-Santa Cruz: Fan Kong, fankong (at) yahoo.com

The Mentor Group currently consists of 20+ members, led by George Leung.

The Mentor Group has prepared a comprehensive guide for exchange or summer students of CUHK studying at U.C. Berkeley. It offers many valuable tips about how to get around, places to see, where to get great food, and just about anything one can think of about living and studying in Berkeley. This guide is compiled by Paul Lee based on contributions from the mentors and the students themselves, and is periodically updated.

The mentors are motivated to make the students' visit in Northern California a pleasant and memorable one. In addition to large-scale field trips to local spots of historical or cultural interest, they also plan a number of fun activities intended for small groups. Students are encouraged to check out the Small Group Activities currently offered and contact the mentors in charge directly.
