Student Clubs

With approximately 450 student clubs to choose from, you can easily enhance what you learn in the classroom and give you the chance to embrace your passions. More than 100 cultural and ethnic student clubs and organizations foster diversity and cultural engagement on campus. Below is AMS (Alma Mater Society) club that may be of interests for students of German:

World Languages Club hosts cultural and discussion events that bring together students of a common linguistic background and/or interest, regardless of concentration. The majority of our events are nights dedicated to one language (determined by popular demand) with a cultural theme (for example, Oktoberfest for German; Lunar New Year for Chinese). Students of all abilities are welcome, as the administration of these discussion-events will utilize an innovative “rotation method” for discussions. Participants will grouped by language ability level, and will rotate between conversing with those at their own level, teaching/being taught something new by those of another level, and thematic/game-style discussion in a large group. Holistic multilingual events will also be hosted, celebrating the universal characteristics of language, international exchange, and benefits of multilingualism. All events will include the presentation of cultural foods, either prepared by the executive committee or assembled by potluck.
