China Day at the University of Minnesota

Dr. Juanjuan Wu
I took a field trip on February 25th to the U of M's "China Day" held at the Tedd Mann Concert Hall. This annual event is sponsored by the Confucius Institute.   There was a full house of students in attendance, from at least a dozen high schools, all of whom provide classes in the Chinese language.

The theme for China Day was modern Chinese fashion and design.  A professor from the University of Minnesota, Juanjuan Wu, started the program with a lecture, which was then followed by a student fashion show.  Students wore various Chinese ethnic traditional and modern clothing.
