YouAi (友·爱) is a monthly event, hosted jointly by the Chinese program and the Chinese Language and Culture Club, which aims to create an all-Chinese speaking environment, a mutual support network, and an interactive community among students of Chinese. YouAi is required among students of Chinese upon declaration of the major or the minor. YouAi students will have the following opportunities:

  • Mentoring relationship between upper- and lower-class students
  • Connection to alumni of Chinese major or minor
  • Advice on career and study abroad planning
  • Monthly member-only activities both on and off campus
  • Opportunities to lead Wheaton Chinese Language and Culture Club
  • Fulfillment of the “Cultural Awareness” requirement in the Chinese Major Portfolio (Only applicable to students whose study abroad requirement is waived due to their prior experience living and studying in the target culture)
  • Other potential opportunities
