What is Chinese New Year?
Chinese New Year, also known as Lunar New Year, takes places on 1st February 2022 and is the most important event in the Chinese calendar. Not sure what it’s all about? Our Student Ambassadors James and Yuanling explain:
Year of the Tiger
2022 is the Year of the Tiger – characterised as brave, competitive and confident! Many of our students are unable to travel home to celebrate this year so we pulled out all the stops at Stirling to help everyone wave goodbye to the Year of the Ox and start the year in style. We gathered students together in the Atrium to celebrate with a fortune cookie giveaway, traditional Chinese Lion Dance performance and traditional Chinese food.
Enjoy some traditional food
Our catering outlets served traditional Chinese dishes from 31st January – 7th February including spring rolls, noodle boxes, special teas and oranges which are a symbol of good luck.
Greetings from the University of Stirling
