Who We Are
The German Club was founded in 2000 to promote awareness of and interest in German-speaking cultures and German language by connecting current students in German with the rest of the campus and surrounding communities. The Club also supports the study of German through social and academic events and raises funds for the annual German Club Grant.
Students enrolled in the German Studies program are automatically members and others on and off campus are invited to join. There are no Club dues.
The Club is governed a Council of four and elected by their peers each spring. Working closely with our faculty advisor, the Council is responsible for organizing and planning Club events.
The Club sponsors a variety of events depending on student interest energy, among them the annual Oktoberfest and Maifest. These are opportunities to further cultural awareness and to raise funds for the annual German Club Grant and other activities. All events are open to the public.
All Club events and the Annual Grant are funded by student activities. The Club also sells an assortment of authentic German items: Advent Calendars in November as well as chocolates, candies, and T-shirts.
The German Club Grant
The $1000 Grant is awarded to a student who is enrolled in German and meets the Grant qualifications. It is paid in thirds, one each quarter of the academic year, as long as the student is enrolled in a German class. Applications are available at the start of spring term and due in May.
