Activities for Chengdu, China

Students are welcome to participate in all university activities, including sports and events, as well as city-wide activities in the community—celebrations for the Chinese New Year, annual conventions, and special events. Informal social events are also planned, including meals out as a group and other outings throughout the city. These activities are optional and usually only have a nominal expense (for example, the price of a meal).
