The annual New Year's party at Jiangnan University in Wuxi, East China is always the most anticipated event for international students.
Of course, this year is no exception. Its latest version hit the campus on Dec 28, 2017.
Though the local temperature was challenging the "zero line" and students were busy preparing for their final exams, the night of Dec 28 was bright with a festive air and a celebration of the changing year.
Jared, a seasoned student host from the US, and his lovely guest Katie from Thailand gave the event a stirring opening.
The young MCs were itching to show their fluency in quite a few languages – Chinese, South Korean, Japanese, Thai, even Wuxi dialect – and also to extend their greetings to schoolmates, teachers and other guests.
"So without further adieu, let's welcome all the people who came together and get this New Year party started!"
