The Schine Underground was transformed into a Taiwanese paradise.

The Schine Underground looked like a Taiwanese fairground Wednesday night. The Taiwan Connection hosted a "Taiwan night" from 6 to 8:30 p.m. for SU students to experience Taiwan culture. Taiwanese games, prizes, food, and a flea market comprised the night's activities. Students could try their luck at games like marbles picking, throw the hoop, or poke it. Winners received candy and assorted knick-knacks. If gambling wasn't appealing, you could learn how to make origami or Sand Art.
