Impressive Cultural Activities of the Fall Semester
Right after the Confucius Institute Day event, we celebrated the Mid-Autumn Festival on October 2 at the University of South Florida (USF) Marshall Student Center Ballroom. More than 600 USF and community participants tasted moon cakes and enjoyed a variety of performances by professional and talented students. The performances included the opening Dragon Dance by the Mt. Song Martial Art Academy, dances by local Chinese American dance groups, qipao show by the Qipao Association of Overseas Chinese, a Chinese song by soprano Jingyi Wang (dean of the QU College of Arts), and several talent shows by American and Chinese students.

From October to November, in addition to CI lectures and other events, we organized three cultural activities attended by almost 300 students and community members. They are:
