As many students that are just starting college or transferring this fall to NIU, we find it disheartening to find that there has been budget cuts to the World Languages and Cultures Department at NIU. This petition is to help those who wish to Minor in Chinese at NIU and get started in the program. For those that will want to start their college journey or continue it from a transferring university it is imperative to have the beginner Chinese course of FLCH 101 for this Fall semester. The beginner class in specific of the Chinese courses is what jumpstarts many students passion and love of not only learning a new language and communicating with a vast majority of the population, but also experiencing and getting to know a whole other culture.

Many students first step of exploring and getting to know the Chinese language and culture begins at this first beginner course of FLCH 101. Those of us saw NIU as an opportunity to Minor in Chinese and get involved in the program to learn a new language and gain insight into a culture otherwise unexplored. We ask the World Languages and Cultures Department at NIU to seriously reconsider having FLCH 101 for the fall semester. This not only impacts students college careers but their careers in general for the future and what they wish to accomplish from graduating at NIU.
