Chinese students celebrate Mid Autumn at university

THE Wollongong Chinese Students and Scholars Association (WCSSA) held the biggest event for UOW’s Chinese students for the year –the Mid-Autumn Celebration on Saturday.

Public officer of WCSSA, Chao Zhong, said the celebration provided an opportunity to get together with all the Chinese students and staff with Chinese ethnic background as well as mingle with students currently studying Mandarin at the University as well as other students attending.

The event provided 400 students with dinner, entertainment and performances produced by current Chinese university students.

With more than 2,000 Chinese students studying at the University, the Faculty of Commerce has the largest intake of Chinese undergraduate and postgraduate students and, hence, gives its strong support to the celebration.
