Confucius Institute Participates in Culture Night

Friday, November 2, 2012, 6 PM  

Xavier University College of Pharmacy in cooperation with the Center for Intercultural/International Programs celebrated the second Cultural Night 2012 in the UC Ballroom on Friday, November 2, 2012.

Culture Night was the highlight of the International Week, an event organized by the Center for Intercultural/International Programs to promote intercultural understanding. This is the first time the Confucius Institute participated in this event and it was a great success. The Chinese Culture Display attracted many students, faculties, staff and guests. Some students who learned about Confucius Institute language programs for the first time expressed great interest in taking Mandarin courses in the future. Confucius Institute staff also participated in culture presentation and fashion show.

Some faculty and students who attended the Grand Opening of the Confucius Institute on October 19 recognized two instruments on the Chinese Musical Instruments poster: Erhu and Guzheng, which were played on the Grand Opening ceremony.

Some people asked about the modernized cupping tools - Haci Five Elements magnetic acupressure cupping set and a student was amazed to see the actual acupuncture needles displayed on the table.
