Duke's tradition of greeting the Spring Festival began in 2012 with this card for the Year of the Dragon.

Since 2012, Duke has created a special greeting for departments and individuals to share with students, alumni and other friends of the university who celebrate Spring Festival, or Chinese New Year, at the dawn of the Lunar New Year.

From traditional silk painting and paper cutting to sharp and bold graphics, the custom-designed greetings have been created each year to express well wishes to members of the Duke community who celebrate the Spring Festival. Many of them have been designed by students.
