Around Campus

Campus Dining’s Monthly Feature: Feb 2018

Happy Valentines Day!

Americans probably began exchanging hand-made valentines in the early 1700s. In the 1840s, Esther A. Howland began selling the first mass-produced valentines in America. Howland, known as the “Mother of the Valentine,” made elaborate creations with real lace, ribbons and colorful pictures known as “scrap.”

February 16 – Chinese New Year

Unlike the American New Year celebration, the Chinese New Year will be celebrated on Feb. 16, 2018 and marks the beginning of a new lunar according to the traditional Chinese calendar rather than the Gregorian calendar.

The annual Chinese holiday is known as the Lunar New Year or the Spring Festival. Each year is represented by a zodiac animal on the lunar-solar Chinese calendar. As China ushers out 2017 as the Year of the Rooster, citizens are readying to welcome 2018 as the Year of the Dog. The Spring Festival in China is celebrated for several months as a time to gather with family and hope for good fortune in the upcoming year.

Chicken stir fry over rice with vegetables: $4.95
Pork or vegetable egg rolls: $1.75 ea. and corn chowder: $.35/oz
