Chinese New Year Celebration 2018

February 23, 2018 - 3:00pm to 5:00pm
East Asian Studies Department, Learning Services Building

The Chinese Language program, in welcoming the Chinese New Year, held a celebration party on Feb. 23. More than 100 students from Chinese language classes, TAs and instructors participated in the event. Students enjoyed a variety of activities in the LSB courtyard: Chinese calligraphy, paper cutting, bean (M&M) picking with chopsticks, a character recognition game and shuttlecock kicking. The major activity was dumpling making (shown in picture). Students learned how to make dumplings under the guidance of TAs and instructors. The dumplings were cooked on site, and each student got to enjoy freshly cooked jizaozi. Many students brought their friends along, and some came with their parents. Everybody had a great time. This event was sponsored by the Student-Faculty Interaction grant and EAS. We thank all of the instructors and TAs for their hard work and their contributions. It was a big success!
