DNU sports day

The last morning in Dalian some of us attended the university sports day. It was a spectacular event, and one that perhaps Benedictine could emulate (!!??). The Chinese, of course, are expert at massed displays. We saw students dressed in their institutional colors, and also some dressed in Manchurian costume.

    What happens on “university sports day”? Am I correct to assume that members of different sports teams parade?

    Martin, it was more like an intramural event. The different colors indicated the different institutes (which I take to be majors or programs), and they compete with one another.

    I assume there are sports later in the day — I only observed some of the opening ceremonies in the morning.
