SE had its Year of the Goat celebration in the hub with Chinese calligraphy, origami, fortune cookies, a zodiac wheel game, green tea and food.

On South, its Year of the Sheep celebration featured J.K. Wong Academy performing the lion dance as well as a Kung Fu showcase. Other activities included festive music, zodiac handouts that informed students what animal was represented in the year they were born and food from Panda Express.

In a game of chance, South students choose a photo off the game board, the worker rolls the die, and if one of the pictures on the die matches the chosen photo, the student wins a prize.  Katelyn Townsend/The Collegian
