Past Events

 	GERMAN DAY

GERMAN DAY
Each spring semester, the department hosts up to 500 students from local area high schools for a day of competition and fun. Students show off their knowledge of German grammar, they recite poetry, perform skits, display their artwork, and enter their cakes and deserts for a baking competition. A "Culture Bowl" at the end of each German Day determines the best high school team! Watch out for our next German Day in Spring 2016!

For more information e-mail germanday@gmail.com.

 	AWARDS CEREMONY

AWARDS CEREMONY
Join faculty and students in German Studies as the department recognizes the achievements of its graduate and undergraduate students with fellowships and awards. We will honor our graduating seniors, MAs, and PhDs. We will also invite our most distinguished alumni to UC's campus in order to recognize their outstanding post-UC achievements. The event will include musical entertainment featuring UC's best student musicians (who always happen to be students of German!), as well as a reception featuring food, drink, and conversation. The Spring 2016 Awards Ceremony will be held in the Max Kade German Cultural Center (736 Old Chemistry), date TBA. For more information contact the Department Head.
