China Meet and Greet: Events News

Two Delegations are Coming to Cincinnati

Join them for lunch September 24


Mark your calendars. Thanks to the work of Felix Chang at the University of Cincinnati College of Law, we’re going to have the chance to meet with the members of both the Beijing and Chongqing bar associations. Frost Brown Todd will host the two delegations at their offices on the 33rd floor of the Great American Tower downtown. You can get all the details and register at this link. The event is free for members.

Also, our newly formed Young Professionals Committee will hold a networking event on the evening of Sept. 18. The committee members haven’t quite decided on a location, but it could be one of the sushi shops on West McMillan St. We’ll announce all the details next week on our Facebook page.

Finally, our Programs Committee has been working diligently to put together a great dinner party for our annual Lunar New Year Gala. They have almost finished making their choice for the menu, time and location of the event. By this time next month, we’ll be announcing all the details. But for now, you can go ahead and mark your calendars for Feb. 6, 2015.

Welcoming University of Cincinnati’s New Chinese Students

cincinnati-greetings-from

 

Greetings and welcome to Cincinnati.

Or in other words:

同学们,欢迎!

University of Cincinnati welcomed nearly 1,000 new international students to its ranks this week. They landed at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (more colloquially known as CVG) early this week and received simple toiletries — how nice — and a free ride to their new homes.

Oh yeah and one third (about 250 students) are from China. The other large groups come from India and Saudi Arabia mostly, but our sources; i.e. the international office, say the largest group is the Chinese students.

We’re throwing a party for them tomorrow (Friday, Aug. 15) from 2 to 5 pm at the 86 Club on Short Vine. If you have the time, come join us. We’ll have food, music, games and prizes. A panel of Chinese professionals who live in Cincinnati will also join us to talk about life in the Queen City.

Our goal is to engage this community and help to thrive in Cincinnati. We hope they study hard, graduate fast and get jobs locally. The Cincinnati USA Regional Chamber of Commerce has found that 72 percent of international students want to stay in Cincinnati. It makes sense to help them gain the best opportunities possible.
