2024 Lunar New Year Celebration

Syracuse University students, faculty, and staff are invited to a special cultural event in Slocum Hall to celebrate the upcoming New Year. International students at Syracuse Architecture are organizing the event in collaboration with Dean Michael Speaks.

The Slocum Hall atrium will be transformed into a festival-like atmosphere where students can take a break from the pressures of studio life and engage in activities such as knot tying, zodiac study, paper cutting, and a photo booth. A variety of dishes will be served including dumplings, spring rolls, fried rice, chocolate coins, and traditional candies.

A series of short presentations about East Asian culture and architecture, featuring School of Architecture faculty is also planned to begin at 5:15 p.m. A recording of this video will be made available following the event.
