Newsletter No. 455

455 · 4.4.2015 1 455 04 · 04 · 2015 余 光中教授最近再访中大,接受《通讯》访问,对中大校园仍然赞不绝口,誉为写诗 的福地。中大在沙田这山头栖身,已近半个世纪。本刊今期特展示新近拍摄的照 片,与读者一同从高空俯瞰校园新姿。 大学规模日大,建筑群落增加,外观改变,难免引来沧海桑田之叹。这尽揽山水之胜的校 园,内涵是否也随而丰盛,反更值得反思。本刊付梓之日,正是2015博群花节园游会在未 圆湖畔举行之时。犹幸这道秀美的人文风景,绝对是中大独家。 今昔对比,无论孰者为优,总叫人有点唏嘘。今日高度数码化的办公室,以不见片纸半笺 为尚,H君接到后辈交来旧函,抚今追昔之际,竟破天荒没有在回信中寄以任何叮嘱。读 者若同此怀抱,不妨在这烟雾迷蒙的暮春,执笔舒纸,重拾旧日闲情雅兴,给友人亲书几 句问候之语。 T he Newsletter interviewed Prof. Yu Kwang-chung when he visited the University recently. He was full of praise for our campus, saying it most ideal for poetry writing. The Chinese University campus has occupied this hillside for half a century. This issue will show you the latest aerial pictures of our beautiful campus. As the University expands and buildings grow in number, its changing appearance makes us wonder whether the outward changes are accompanied by inward ones. Whatever the answer, it’s certainly a topic worth contemplation. The day this Newsletter was sent to the printer happened to coincide with the I · CARE Programme─Blossoms of Life Floral Festival held at Lake Ad Excellentiam . The festival features a richness of cultural and natural landscapes unique to CUHK. Whatever our views of the present compared to the past, we can’t help but noticing the passage of time. In today’s highly digitized office, pen and paper have almost vanished. H., when presented with an old document by a younger staff, waxes lyrical about the past but, atypically, does not offer any advice. If this foggy spring weather puts you in the mood, why not pick up a pen and scribble a few lines to your friends and loved ones? 目录 Contents 鸟瞰中大校园 Seeing the Campus as Birds Do 2 梦幻王国的背后 Behind the Magic Kingdom 4 校园消息 Campus News 6 Letters to a Young Executive 7 宣布事项 Announcements 8 到任同仁 Newly Onboard 9 口谈实录 Viva Voce 10 . . . 余光中:中大是写诗的理想地方 (页10) Yu Kwang-chung: CUHK Conducive to Poetry Writing (p. 10) Photo by ISO staff Hola! 拉丁节奏摇动校园 Hola !
