Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) It was an international experience at Binghamton High School where 25 students from China helped keep a budding tradition going for another year.

The exchange students hail from Zhenjiang International School in Zhenjiang, China.

They are here in Binghamton for a University Readiness Program. But the program isn't just about academics, it's also about cultural sharing.

"To experience the American students, and university life, I think that's very meaningful and interesting. I'm very honored to have this opportunity," said exchange student Rena Ren.

"I like to learn about new people, and meet new people everyday. It's nice to be here, and learn a different culture," said East Middle School student Joshua Rios.

After dinner, the students also shared their musical talents with performances.

The Fourth Annual Chinese Dinner was sponsored by Binghamton High School and Binghamton University.
