Foreign language clubs at Northern Illinois University may not all be recognized by the school, but they had reason to come together Friday to share Christmas traditions.
The German, Spanish, French and Chinese clubs were at the NIU language party on Friday. Some clubs shared region-specific holiday traditions at the party, like German Club vice-president Marlena Jorn singing Christmas carols in German and sharing food unique to the language or to this time of year.
Chinese Club president Jake Irle said the group contributed with spring rolls.
