What is Chinese Cultural Night?
Chinese Cultural Night is an annual event organized by the Chinese students of Universiti Sains Malaysia Health Campus.

Besides, this event helps to strengthen unity and to cultivate mutual understanding between students from different roots and backgrounds.
UnIque Virtual Charity Run 2020 is named with the concept of You (U) and I. It symbolizes you and I participate in this run and run together. It symbolizes the influence of togetherness with the involvement of the community. Contribute to the society is not the responsibility of yours OR mine, it is the duty of “You” & “I”. The more the merrier and the merrier the greater. Hand in hand with your friends to take part in this run. It’s fun and don’t miss the chance!
