The Washington College community celebrated the 2018 Chinese Lunar New Year together with Chinese food and fun activities

On Saturday, February 17th, 2018, Washington College students, faculty, and community members joined together in celebration of the Lunar New Year. The event was run by the GEO office and the Chinese Student Union, with the help of Washington College Catering.  There were dozens of different foods provided by both China House as well as traditional Chinese dishes made by Chinese international students. Dishes such as fried rice, dumplings, and spring rolls were prepared for everyone to enjoy, and many other activities were set up for people to participate in. There was a table at the event for attendees to practice Chinese calligraphy, and one table for people to craft their own personal Chinese paper lanterns. The event was truly a popular and entertaining celebration of Chinese culture.
