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 in the Club, but others on and off campus are also invited to join. There are no Club dues and prospective members should contact Joseph Stevens, German Club President.
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.
The Club is very active and sponsors numerous events during the year. Stammtisch, Kaffeestunde, and Filmabend bring students together to practice their language skills while building connections across all language levels. Events are open to the community.
The Club also hosts annual events including Oktoberfest, Maifest, and the Karneval Maskerade Ball. These celebrations are campus-wide and offer us a chance to share German culture. All proceeds fund the annual German Club Grant and other activities.

All Club activities and the Annual Club Scholarship are financed by fund raising efforts from our students and faculty. To augment its funds, the Club also sells an assortment of authentic German items: Advent Calendars, chocolates, and candies. German themed T-shirts designed by the Club are also for sale. Please contact any Council member or our faculty for purchases.
If you are interested in placing an order, please contact the German Club Adviser, Dr. Gudrun Hoobler, 503-838-8715.
The German Club Scholarship is awarded annually to a student enrolled in the German Studies program, regardless of their academic major or minor. Criteria for the $1,000 Scholarship was established by our students, and it is awarded by a committee of faculty members to a recipient they feel meets the criteria the best. The application for the 2013-14 award is now available, and is due to Dr. Hoobler by 2pm on May 15, 2013.
