  • 1. Our Cultural Program (activities) Chinese Day This is CI-UADY major event organized twice a year at the University Headquarters on Sunday mornings or evenings; during the spring, we celebrate the Spring Festival and during the second semester, we celebrate Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival. CI-UADY offers more than 12 cultural activities and exhibitions of martial arts, calligraphy, paper cutting, which gives people the opportunity to experience Chinese culture and have fun. Workshops During the regular semester of classes, CI-UADY organized three to four workshops for students to familiarize them with Chinese Festivals, Chinese Tea Ceremony, Paper Cutting, Calligraphy, Opera or Lion Dance performance. This helps CI-UADY teachers to prepare students with natural abilities to different arts and to students for knowing more about Chinese culture. Closing Ceremonies During closing ceremonies, organized twice a year, students have the opportunity to share with their families and friends, the knowledge they have learnt about Chinese language and culture. Students prepare, with teachers supervision, songs, plays, dances, poems, etc. and they present them to the public at the University’s theater.
