Year of the Rat

The Wright State University Office of Latinx, Asian and Native American Affairs hosted a celebration on Jan. 24 to welcome the 2020 Lunar New Year.

The celebration featured a lion dance, a Chinese traditional dance performance, arts and crafts and free food samples.

“It’s the biggest celebrated holiday and festivities in Asia,” said Mia Honaker, coordinator of the Office of Latinx, Asian and Native American Affairs.

Honaker says the event allows Asian community members at Wright State an opportunity to celebrate their heritage and culture while letting everyone learn about the Lunar New Year.

“I hope Wright State students take away the fun and the culture,” said Isabelle Hardesty, a junior international studies major. “There’s more to life than what’s in front of them.”
