MIT welcomed the year of the tiger last Sunday with several celebrations throughout campus. MIT has always been exceptional at providing the entire student body with opportunities to learn about the many cultures present on campus. This past Sunday’s event, the Chinese Students Club’s annual Chinese New Year Banquet, was no exception. With hundreds of people of all ages and ethnicities coming from different parts of Boston, the Chinese New Year Banquet was not only a didactic experience, but it was also tons of fun. Although the actual Chinese New Year was on February 14, hundreds showed up to celebrate this past Sunday, the 21st, in Walker Memorial with plenty of food and entertainment. The menu consisted of 20+ Chinese dishes, along with bubble tea and Chinese desserts. With performances including traditional fan dances, Chinese yo-yo tricks, Chinese dragon dances, and many more, the event didn’t have one dull moment. Highlighting the night was a performance by Far East Movement, a hip-hop group based out of Los Angeles, who recently signed a deal with Interscope Records. Their performance was definitely a crowd pleaser, and it was amazing to see such a talented group of guys rock the stage in our very own Walker Memorial building. Overall, it was a fantastically well-put-together event and a great way to spend a Sunday night. Hope you enjoy the pictures!
