The Chinese Students and Scholars Association invites students to attend its Spring Festival, the celebration of the Chinese New Year, from 5-8 p.m. Friday, April 10, at the Donald W. Reynolds Center. Students can get their free tickets and non-students can purchase tickets from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, March 16-17, in front of the Arkansas Union Food Court. Student tickets are free, but students must present an ID. Non-student tickets are $9.00.
Spring Festival is the most important Chinese holiday that celebrates the first day in the traditional Chinese calendar. It is a time for family reunions, visiting relatives and friends, and exchanging greetings for the coming New Year. The Chinese New Year can also be called "Guonian" which means the passing of the old year to the new one. This festival emphasizes the importance of family ties. The dinner gathering of Chinese New Year's Eve is the most important family occasion of the year.
Chinese New Year's celebration is one of the most popular events hosted by the Chinese Students and Scholars Association each spring that affords students a great opportunity to learn more about Chinese traditions and values. Through this event we hope to bring new perspectives and cultural experiences to enrich the diversity and interconnectedness of the University of Arkansas. Come and enjoy Chinese food, performances, and games.
This event is supported by the Student Activities fee as a funded event by the Associated Student Government and is free to all currently enrolled University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, students who pay the student activities fee. For questions about the event or for accommodations due to disability please contact Weijia Shi, CSSA@uark.edu, (501) 398-1143.
