One of the many great things about Walnut Hill’s diverse community is that we have a chance to celebrate a wide array of cultural traditions that are meaningful to members of our student body. Recently, we had the opportunity to observe Lunar New Year (one of the biggest celebrations in the world).
On Monday, February 4, Walnut Hill's student International Representatives shared at Assembly some Lunar New Year traditions celebrated in different countries, and as a special surprise, films created by families of international students were shown wishing their individual Walnuts well for the New Year. On Wednesday, February 6, a traditional Lunar New Year dinner in the Dining Hall was enjoyed by the entire community, all while watching a broadcast of the Spring Festival Gala in China. The celebrations are continuing throughout the week, with students enjoying dinner outings to nearby Asian restaurants, a ramen party movie night, and community dumpling making to cap it all off. Learn more about our other treasured traditions that happen throughout the year on the Hill here.
