Students in CHIN 207 of the Chinese department, in the School of Languages, Linguistics, Literatures and Cultures at the University of Calgary were invited to a celebration of the Year of the Dog on February 16th, 2018. The event allowed students to learn about Chinese New Year’s with a variety of activities.

“Despite the small budget and space available, the Chinese New Year party was a success! There were lots of fun activities, mainly arts and crafts, that not only provided us with entertainment but also taught us about Chinese culture.” - Micaela

“The SGL Chinese New Year event was a great way to de-stress during the busy midterm season. The many activities and crafts were fun including the calligraphy and dragon puppet making” -Allison

“I am so happy I had an opportunity to celebrate Chinese New Year on campus. I did Chinese calligraphy and I really enjoyed it! Wang Laoshi was a pro at it!” -Amy

Activities included dragon puppet making, lantern riddles, and calligraphy writing. A big thank you to Mirabelle Jien, Emily Sam and of course to Professor E-mei Wang, who helped with the supplies and setup of the event.
