About Us

The Chinese Students Club (CSC) of Columbia University is a non-profit student-run organization that promotes social, cultural and political activities both on and off campus. We host various events and activities throughout the school year intended to promote awareness of Chinese culture at Columbia. All of our events are open to everyone; they are Chinese in theme, but not limited to Chinese in attendance. Meet our board!

We also have under us six satellite groups, ranging from the Wushu Club, Radiance Dance Troupe, and Chinese Yo-Yo Club, to the CSC-Connect Peer Mentoring Program, Chinese Conversation Club, and the English Tutoring Program.

Through CSC, we strive to share our culture with others. The events sponsored by CSC range from social mixers to political forums. Our annual events include the Lunar Gala, one of the biggest student-run productions at Columbia, Night Market, Benefit Dinner, and Rice Bowl (a sports tournament).

Sign at the beginning of each school year either as a big sib or little sib and be placed into a warm, loving family.

Coordinators: Jennifer Xiong and Genevieve Chow

Wushu (Chinese Martial Arts)

Wushu is contemporary Chinese martial arts with roots in the many traditional Chinese martial art styles. It is primarily a performing art that emphasizes speed, power, flexibility, balance, and looking unbelievably good. The history of wushu traces back to the early days of the People’s Republic of China when the leaders decided to try to unify the hundreds of styles of kung fu that existed back then. They eventually decided to split the styles into a Northern style known as longfist and a Southern style simply called southern fist. In addition, there are four major weapons categories: dao, jian, gun, qiang, and numerous other minor styles adapted from traditional styles.

President: Daron Lin

Chinese Yo-Yo

The Chinese Yo-Yo Club's mission is to share the art of Chinese yo-yo and diabolo through performances, demonstrations, and workshops. Members have performed for various events on and around campus including the CSC Night Market, CSC Lunar Gala, Days on Campus, and NYU TASS Night Market. They have also held workshops for children at CASPY and Asian Youth Program.

Co-Presidents: Adrien Brochard and Sean Ballinger
Senior Advisors: Emily Lin and Sam Guo

Chinese Conversation Club

The Chinese conversation club is a great opportunity for anyone looking to improve their fluency in Chinese. Foreigners, ABC's, and native speakers are all welcome! Meet friends and new people as we chat over free food during our bi-weekly meetings.
