More than 100 Chinese-background students, scholars and their families gathered together to celebrate Chinese New Year at UOW on 15 February, Chinese New Year’s Eve.

The event was held by the Association of Chinese Scholarship Council sponsored students and scholars to celebrate the Year of the Dog and was supported by UOW, the Consulate General of the People’s Republic of China in Sydney and two local Illawarra businesses.

Several professors from across UOW shared their stories of studying and living in Australia and encouraged Chinese students to continue contributing to the strong links between the two countries.
