Cornell University students (USA) at Ton Duc Thang University

Another learning week of Cornell University students at Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU) continues with the cultural exchange activity between students of the two universities organized by TDT Creative Language Center (CLC) on the morning of January 7th, 2020. 

The students of the two universities had a lot of interaction activities to learn about Vietnamese Tet culture, and welcoming activities of the western New Year in the USA. Through the presentation of TDTU students, Cornell University students, for the first time, know the special features of Tet in the North, South, Central and Highlands of Vietnam. Cornell University students also presented western New Year's culture and traditional cuisine on Thanksgiving and Christmas Celebration in the USA.

Especially, the challenge and quiz game has brought new knowledge, refreshing laughter and touching moments for students when the traditional music of the two countries played in this new year event. The event was closed with a song by all students and lecturers.

This is the third year CLC and Cornell University organize this program; a promising annual program for the two universities. With the expectation for generations of students of the two sides to continue to preserve and promote lasting friendship; the students’ cultural exchange activities between the two universities have met the goal to directly deepen the understanding, empathy and strengthen the friendship for all participants.
