Happy year of the horse! A Lunar New Year celebration was held on the evening of January 31, 2014 at Harris Concert Hall. The party was attended by around three hundred students, faculty and staff members, families, host families, and Grinnell community members. We had delicious food ordered from China Sea, wonderful performance put up by various Grinnell students, and fun games. Special thanks go to CSA, AAA, Chinese and Japanese SEPC, SGA, ISO, and all the other organizations and individuals who helped make this such a great success!
