Chinese New Year & Spring Festival
February 15, 2017
The Confucius Institute teachers and students came together to celebrate the Chinese New Year and Lantern Festival experience. The festival consisted of multiple activities designed to enhance the awareness of the Chinese culture amongst TSU students. Students made dumplings, clipped beans, calligraphy, and completed Chinese riddles. After the students completed all four activities, they received free fried rice and Spring rolls.
Students who participated in the New Years celebration learned some Chinese vocabulary, such as "Hello", "Thank you, and "Goodbye". Students were very happy to experience the traditional Chinese Spring Festival activities, while gaining a more in-depth understanding of China.
