Students and faculty celebrated the Chinese New Year in Valentine Dining Hall on Friday, January 24 with traditional Chinese cuisine, dumpling making demonstrations and other celebratory activities. This event came one day before the actual Chinese New Year on January 25. According to the Chinese zodiac, 2020 is the year of the rat.
When swiping your torch card, there was a glass bowl of red envelopes filled with a decorative card and a fortune, a theme of red and gold was sprinkled around the dining hall. Chinese lanterns with trivia questions attached hung from the ceiling above where traditional Chinese dishes were served. Recipes inspired by influential Chinese chefs included boneless spare ribs, Chinese pork roast, and Asian beef and broccoli stir fry.
There was an array of food options, including vegan seitan steak, pepper pecans, and teriyaki mushrooms. Flyers advertising the event were posted around Arnow Campus Center and Valentine Dining Hall.
Guests were also invited to make dumplings with the instruction of senior Betty Song. She demonstrated how to carefully construct the dough pouches to be filled with either meat or vegetables. Dumplings made by guests were cooked to be enjoyed by those who made them.
Those who didn’t get the chance to make their own dumplings still had the opportunity to try some. Steamed dumplings were made and served during the lunch buffet with options of vegan and meat.
“It made me really happy to see an activity where students and professors can explore other cultures different from what they’re used to when eating at the dining hall,” said first-year Joshua Varghese after attending the event and enjoying the vegan food options.

How can one truly tell what the best movie is? According to Statista, 786 movies were released in North America (the United States and Canada, specifically) last year.
