Logistics and E-commerce College Students Celebrated Dragon Boat Festival with International Students

On June 8th, Logistics and E-commerce college students celebrated Dragon Boat Festival (Duanwu Festival) with international students who wrapped Zongzi (rice dumplings) together in the Faculty Dining Room to let them learn more about the Festival and experience the traditional festival culture. They thought highly of this activity in which they observed and learned the process of making Zongzi earnestly and later they learned more about the festival with Chinese teachers’ and students’ explanations. This activity not only enriched the extracurricular life but also offered an opportunity for the foreign teachers and international students to learn about Chinese traditional culture and made them appreciate its charm. Moreover, it enhanced the exchanges and communication between the international and Chinese students and thus promoted the intercultural communication between Chinese and Western cultures.
