"Tomorrow's Leaders" is a subject developed to satisfy the Leadership and Intrapersonal Development requirement at The Hong Kong Polytechnic University. After taking this subject, students were invited to use three descriptors and a metaphor to describe their experiences about the subject. Based on the reflections of 143 students, results showed that 94.4% of the descriptors used by informants were positive and 2.31% of the descriptors were negative. For the metaphors used to describe the subject, 92.7% were positive and 4.47% were negative. In conjunction with other findings, the present study suggests that ?Tomorrow's Leaders? is a subject that can promote the holistic development in Chinese university students in Hong Kong.
