We aim to enrich the cultural diversity on campus by providing activities and events related to German culture. Through said events, we support the German Studies Department in their mission to teach language and culture. Our priority is to make events enjoyable and accessible, so that students have more extracurricular opportunities related to their academic learning. A secondary function of our events is to provide opportunities for German students to collect “Culture Credits.” This is a loosely defined term created by the German Studies Department to encourage students to attend on or off campus events related to the German culture in some way. Said Culture Credits have historically counted towards students’ participation grade in selected classes. Termination of the use of Culture Credits by the German Department should not affect our club’s mission. Our membership is not exclusive in any way. Any student, faculty, or staff member is free to join.
