Activities and Events

Each quarter we have lots of exciting events happening on campus like conversation hours, film nights, game nights, and more!

Here is an overview of our regularly offered activities – follow us on Facebook and Instagram @kzoogerman to get updates about other events!

Other activities are also offered periodically during the year; sometimes professors will invite classes to their homes to foster community within the German Department. Start learning German and become a part of unserer deutschen Familie!

Spielstunde: Montags, 19.00-20.00

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
