SSDPP Christmas Party a Huge Success


More than 30 SSDPP students and faculty members had a great time during the school’s annual Christmas Party on December 23rd, 2013.

A Christmas tree decked with colorful decorations, giant snowflakes dangling in the hallway, sparking lights, soothing music, candles, plus a hyper-excited Santa Clause embodied by our very own SSDPP student, all combined to create the perfect Christmas atmosphere on the 20th floor of BNU’s New Main Building. Many were surprised that this place for study could be transformed into such a fabulous party location with only a bit of creativity.

Students, professors and friends enjoyed the intimate get-together over drinks, music, gifts, games, and food.

Worth mentioning is that the mouth-watering food provided at the party was completely prepared by the foreign students of SSDPP. They spent hours in their kitchens producing the most authentic festival food/drinks from their home nations. For those who didn’t have the chance to get a bite, here is your chance to feast your eyes.
