At the beginning of the 2019 spring semester, faculty and students of NYU Shanghai returned to the campus from all over the world. On February 18th, just before the Lantern Festival, the Office of Graduate and Advanced Education hosted a Spring Mixer for graduate students, faculty and staff members, who gathered together to enjoy an evening of food, drink, calligraphy arts, music and lantern festival celebrations.
