Stay-at-school Students Enjoy a Lively and Warm Spring Festival

 Campus

 
The leaders of Tianjin University and more than 200 teachers and students from home and abroad who stayed at the university celebrated the Spring Festival together on February 4.
 
 

On the afternoon of the Spring Festival's Eve, Weijin Road Campus of Tianjin University’s Canteen No.4 was decorated with lanterns and colored hangings and looked so inviting. The University arranged buses to gather the students from the Peiyangyuan Campus to take them to the Weijin Road Campus. International faculty and students who stayed at the university were also invited to attend this party. They wrote Fu characters, guessed riddles, cut paper window flowers, and made dumplings together. Teachers and students laughed and talked together while experiencing various Chinese New Year folk customs. 

 

The university's dolls for the Year of the Pig and red scarves were the most popular props for teachers and students to take self-portraits and photographs.
