Club Spotlight: Chinese Club

By   /   April 22, 2013  /   Comments Off

COD’s Chinese club is not only passionate about educating people about the Chinese culture, but also acting as a support group for students and their educational goals.

They meet every three weeks and love to engage in a variety of activities together such as playing pool, karaoke, ski trips, college visits, and outings over the summer to Six Flags or to go camping.

Chinese club has volunteered in a variety of projects on and off campus such as this year’s Laps for Chaps 5k Run and New Student Orientation.

They also have collaborated with COD’s Autismerica. This past fall they joined to hold a gaming competition at the college. Last summer they helped serve food at a music event in Naperville called Naperville’s Last Fling.

“We also like to contribute to the community and represent COD in a positive way,” commented Min Pan, advisor, who started the club two years ago after noticing the increasing amount of Asian students attending COD.

On Friday, April 12 COD’s Chinese Club participated in a Cultural Night at Downer’s Grove elementary school where they sponsored a room of activities for children.

The activities, such as origami, Chinese calligraphy, and learning how to use chopsticks, helped the kids to learn about China and Chinese culture.

Chinese club currently has about 30 members and are always welcoming new ones. “Next year we will continue our mission of connecting students to help each other learn and grow,” said Jinglei He, nursing student and Chinese club President.
