About the CAO

The Amherst College China Awareness Organization was founded in the fall of 2004. Our goal is to spread an awareness of Chinese culture on campus during the school year, celebrating annual festivals such as Chinese New Year and the Mid-Autumn Festival, and bringing attention to major issues in China today.



February 13, 2005: We've had a successful Chinese New Year celebration in cooperation with Valentine Dining Hall. Also, our club has been offically recognized by the Judiciary Council.

October 2005: E-mail us with your AC box number for tickets to the Chinese Cultural Evening! Event starts at 6:30 pm.
