Lunar New Year

Lunar New Year is a celebration of the new year based on the lunar calendar, which begins on the first full moon of a new year and lasts for 15 days. It is a time for renewal, family gatherings and paying respect to elders and ancestors. Moreover, it is said that our actions during this time will determine how our upcoming year will turn out. 

This festival features handing out red envelopes, exploding firecrackers and dragon dancing down the street. Although this festival will be celebrated only one day on our campus, our goal is for students of various cultural backgrounds to come and enjoy the Lunar New Year Festival and gain an understanding of this cultural event.

Lunar New Year (Year of the Rooster) will be celebrated this winter quarter in University Park. Check back later email for details.

Pan-Asian Graduation Celebration

This annual event celebrates students' personal success and academic achievements in the spirit and traditions of our culture. The ceremony is open to all graduating students (undergraduate and graduate), and it allows graduates the opportunity to publicly thank those who have helped them throughout their educational careers.

Students who have participated in past Pan-Asian Graduation Celebration have said that they were among the most memorable experiences they have had at Cal Poly Pomona.

The 17th Annual Pan-Asian Graduation Celebration will be held in Spring Quarter in the Bronco Student Center Ursa Major. Check back later or email for details
