On December 11th, the second International Culture Festival of Changzhou University was held in Shuiyue Square. Students from 12 countries prepared the Festival and had photos with President Pu Yuzhong.

The international students made posters introducing their countries and local culture. Dressed in their traditional costumes, they danced to the rhythm of their folk music, and happily shared typical homemade snacks and drinks of their hometown. Colombian condensed milk, Vietnam Spring rolls, Mauritius cookies and Thai food were extremely popular among Chinese students. The international fashion show by foreign students aroused loud applauses from the audience. Chinese students also joined them in the performance. In the end, foreign students sang a Chinese song ‘I'm sorry, my Chinese is not good’ together to express their love of Chinese.

With the University’s internationalization, a substantial growth in the international students’ population has been noted. In 2015, a total of more than 200 students coming from over 30 countries participated in short and long exchange programs as well as degree programs, which have risen 83 percent compared with last year.
