On a Saturday night while many college students go partying, the Chinese American Student Association (CASA) provided an alternative to the party scene by sponsoring Chinese New Year celebrating Year of Rat 2008 which occurred in the William Pitt Union on the night of Feb 16, 08.

The event started of with a CASA video that drew the attention of the packed Assembly Room of more than 200 audience members.

After the video, the Chinese New Year celebration began with the Lion Dance performed by the Organization of Chinese Americans (OCA)! According to the program, “the Lion Dance is traditionally performed during Chinese New Year to bring good luck and fortune. Money in a little red envelope called “Hong Bao” is offered to the lion in order to bring “Prosperity”.”

The Lion Dance was followed by the introduction of the 14-member board of CASA and the hilarious Emcee’s of Pitt students, Paulo Lucero and Christian Bergman.
