Activities and Events

We have a great community of German-speakers at K, including current students, TAs, and alumni! Each quarter we host lots of events like conversation hours, film nights, game nights, and more!

#KfromAnywhere Virtual Events

Even with the move to online learning, we know students are still looking to connect. We are finding ways for students to meet with each other through virtual conversation hours, TV watch parties, game nights, and more!

Follow us on Facebook and Instagram @kzoogerman to get updates about other events!

Here are some of the kinds of events we host regularly:


German Game Night (for beginners)

Students can gather weekly at the coffee shop in the library to play fun games like “Tabu” “Cluedo,” “Äpfel zu Äpfeln”. All students are welcome, but this event is designed for our beginning students.


The German Department often shows popular German-language films that serve as an extracurricular extension of what students learn in the classroom about German culture. The films are shown with English or German subtitles. Each quarter we select three films on a certain theme. Recent themes include:

  • Rebels of German History
  • Switzerland!
  • Deutschland Sportland
  • Austrian Films
  • Super Soundtracks
  • Liebeskummer
