Blugolds celebrated the Chinese new year of the Monkey in Dr. Kaishan Kong's Chinese language and culture classes. Students in the Chinese language classes had a chance to see Chef Thomas demonstrate how to make dumplings and had a hands-on experience in the Davies kitchen. The culture class interacted with Chinese international students on campus to learn how to write Chinese calligraphy, make dumplings and know more about the cultural practice of Chinese new year. Thanks to the generous support of Blugold Dining Service and the student organization Culture Exchange Club, these experience-based activities expanded students' knowledge and increased their interests in Chinese language and culture. It was also a valuable opportunity for domestic students and international students to communicate across cultures.
