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.

Club Council

The Club is governed by an elected Council and consists of four student officers elected by their peers each spring. Working closely with our faculty advisor, the Council is responsible for organizing and planning Club events.

Vice President


The Club is very active and sponsors numerous events during the year. Stammtisch, Kaffeestunde and Filmabend have brought students together to share their interests in all things German. Events are open to the community.

The Club also hosts the annual Oktoberfest and Maifest as opportunities to further cultural awareness and to raise funds for the annual German Club Grant and other activities.


All Club events and the Annual Club 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 classes 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.
