The Asian Students’ Association’s annual Lunar New Year celebration to welcome the Year of the Rat will take place Feb. 4 during open time and Feb. 7 during lunch. The locations for the events have not been determined.

“We think it’s important to share our cultures, and the holidays that are important to us with the entire school because it’s a good learning experience and a new way to understand another person,” ASA treasurer Esha Mishra said. 

The celebrations will have activities such as chopstick and dumpling-eating competitions, food, and movies that center around Asian-American culture and identity. 

“The dumpling-eating contest is always my favorite because it’s a no-hand-eating one, which is always fun to watch,” ASA president Nikita Kumar said.
