China on the Palouse

Held on the University of Idaho main campus each semester, China on the Palouse provides University of Idaho students and community members an opportunity to learn more about China in a comfortable, informal setting. Each seminar focuses on a different topic related to Chinese culture and audience members may engage with our guest presenters during time provided at the end of the hour-long presentations. These gatherings are a wonderful chance for you to meet new friends, engage with native Chinese speakers and learn more about China. All are welcome to join! These events are free and open to the public.
