SMU Connect China 联结中国


We are a cultural club in SMU under ICON that is open to all Chinese international students and SMU students who are interested in the Chinese Culture. Connect China is dedicated to hold meaningful cultural events to promote Chinese Culture and a place for students to interact and make friends regardless of nationality. We have helpful and friendly exco members, and you definitely can expect interesting cultural events from our club!


  1. Freshmen Welcome Party

"Connect China has helped me to understand more about traditional Chinese Culture. By planning and holding various events, I have the opportunity to make more friends and form stronger bonds helping each other. Joining Connect China has honed my communication and planning skills but most importantly, I have gained lifelong friends."

- Xu Wei, Event Director, LKCSB, Year 3


"Connect China is a cohesive and warm community. We help each other without any hesitation. We organised events and singing competitions for students from different countries and proudly introduced them to our Chinese Culture. I hope more people will know about us and join our future events! "
