German Table & Club

In addition to classroom interaction between professors and students,the German Studies program enlists the aid of a language table and also a German Club organized by German faculty and German students to assist the student with his/her language skills and provide a hands-on experience of German food, customs, and culture. Both the table and the club meet during alternate weeks to allow students a chance to attend the club and the table.
