UC Berkeley Chinese New Year Dinner

Chinese New Year is a core aspect of Singapore’s culture, and holds great import for all, even non-Chinese. In Singapore, Chinese New Year serves as an occasion to invite the extended family and friends for a communal dinner, and is one of the few occasions where one feels connected with his/her roots and family. For the student community in Berkeley, it is infeasible to fly back home for this festival. Thus in lieu of this familial tradition, UC Berkeley’s Singapore Student Association is hosting its own Chinese New Year dinner, for the students to have a communal dinner with their fellow Singaporeans and experience the Singapore culture as they would back home, and to promote a sense of community between the Singaporeans here in UC Berkeley.
