Students practiced writing Chinese characters in calligraphy when they visited the UA campus for China Day. The event was held at Quaker Square and was presented by the Confucius Institute. Students from seven area high schools participated.

On February 23, seven area high schools (Barberton, Roosevelt, St. Vincent-St. Mary, Walsh, Brunswick, Medina and Twinsburg) attended the Confucius Institute’s China Day at The University of Akron’s Quaker Square.

Sponsored by the Confucius Institute at The University of Akron and in a partnership with Akron International Friendship and Asia, Inc., the day was brought about due to an overwhelming response to High School Day during the China Week activities in October.

With limited space in October, CI had to turn away over 400 students from Chinese language programs at local high schools.
