On March 17th, Soochow’s dormitory presented a multi-cultural carnival as a part of the celebration of the school’s 118th birthday. With this year’s theme “In Between,” the fun event led the attendees to an interactive experience between humans and environment in a heart-warming dormitory just like home.
The carnival was a success, as many students who attended told the reporter that in the process and in many aspects were surprises and creative ideas, which was absolutely impressive.
While there were mobile diners and food stands serving tasty foods and drinks at the scene, street artists and student groups such as the dance club and the guitar club were also invited to spice up the carnival. And 200 canvas bags were distributed to the attendees, who can enjoy their own do-it-yourself painting on the bags.
The event organizers had been promoting the carnival in an eye-catching way several days ahead of the school’s anniversary. They picked 25 students at random on campus every day in a five-day period and put on them a lock which would be unlocked only after they attend the carnival.
Chun Wang, the coordinator of the carnival and also the administrative director of the support group of Songchin Dormitory, said that this year’s event expanded beyond the premises of the dorms for the first time to as far as Jingxi Road Cultural Trail. He also mentioned that they faced the challenge of distributing and coordinating manpower, for there were over 100 people working together in such a short period of time.
Yi-Chun Chen of SCU’s Student Housing Center said that this annual dorm carnival has been held for more than 10 years, and she hoped the event could be helpful to students and provide an opportunity for students to express themselves.
