Traditional songs, dance, street dance, music and dumplings. Many, many dumplings. On Sunday 22 January, about 900 Chinese people - mostly students - celebrated New Year on the campus of Wageningen University & Research.

They came to the Wageningen campus from all over the country to join the celebration organised by CASSW, the Chinese Association of Students and Scholars in Wageningen. The organisation had ordered no less than 13 thousand dumplings, the traditional New Year’s snack, to celebrate the Year of the Rooster. The celebration was held in Wageningen for the first time.
