While taking Elementary Chinese, I had the opportunity to practice traditional Chinese calligraphy. This was my absolute favorite part of class because it shows that there is not only a difference in the way words are written (characters versus letters), but also a difference in the method of how the language is written. Calligraphy is a traditional part of Chinese history and culture, and being able to practice it myself made me respect that aspect of the Chinese culture even more. It is no easy feat to write using a calligraphy brush!

Up ‘til Dawn Finale Event
Saturday, February 22 from midnight to 6amin the Hoover-Price Campus Center
All are welcome to join us for this celebration of the work Mount Union has done this year for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. There will be all kinds of food and fun, as well as the unveiling of the total amount of money raised by the Mount Union Community this year!
The event starts at midnight (Friday night into Saturday morning) and goes until 6 a.m. Though this might seem like an unusual time for an event, it is meant to be symbolic of the children and families who stay up all hours fighting cancer. Won’t you stay Up ‘til Dawn in solidarity with and to support the children and families at St. Jude?
Look for more information around campus in the spring!
