The Asian American Coalition of Wheaton College organized a celebration of the Lunar New Year this February in Balfour-Hood Center. The afternoon’s worth of food and activities came near the peak of the nine-day holiday that marks the start of the new year on the Chinese lunar calendar. “The best thing from this year’s celebration was the participation and cultural pride shown by the members of the Asian American Coalition,” said Daniel Han ’12, co-president. “People were excited about this event from the end of November and did not hesitate in the planning process. The event shows how much people enjoy sharing their culture.” (Photos by Gabriela Trevino ’13)
