Although there are 3,553 Chinese international students enrolled at the University of Washington, it can be easy to get homesick.

That is why the Chinese Student Association (CSA) introduced Dumpling Night a few years ago.

Held every fall quarter, Dumpling Night gives students a chance to learn how to make dumplings said Ray Li, the CSA’s activities coordinator, “It definitely helps with homesickness and gives people a sense of belonging.”
