Spring 2015 at William & Mary Confucius Institute

Spring is an exciting time for WMCI as we team up with the Chinese student organizations to celebrate the Spring Festival, as well as prepare for our own China Nights spotlighting the Lantern Festival and Impressions of Beijing. We are excited to host numerous events from a poetry reading to a lecture by an esteemed Harvard professor, in addition to offering a range of classes on everything from Chinese language to Chinese cooking, art, and even history. Lastly, don't miss out on World Taiji and Qigong day toward the end of the semester, a chance to view and participate in demonstrations of China's ancient and therapeutic martial arts practices.
