We're about Chinese Culture and media...

We provide a resource for all to pursue interests in the Chinese language and culture beyond the boundaries of Columbia. Our weekly Cantonese and Mandarin radio programs on 89.9FM reach a wide off-campus audience in the tri-state area. We also provide workshops, monthly movie screenings, and field trips that run throughout the school year. Some of our annual event-highlights include Karaoke Klash (formerly DDKN), Mahjong Madness, and radio drama productions.

Students who are active in extra-curricular activities and student organizations often build and develop leadership skills that they can use for the rest of their lives. Many people who are now working at executive level positions in large corporations were active around their university campuses. Sounds of China at Columbia University is a radio show that features a diverse showcase of talent. Many professionals that are now working in the radio or podcast industry usually started with a radio show in college. Sometimes, this is in conjunction with an apprenticeship in a recording studio while studying audio engineering and taking online courses and lessions!

Come join us! We look forward to an exciting school year.
