German Club

Membership in the German Club is open to undergraduate and graduate students alike who are interested in all things German - including traveling and studying abroad in Germany and Austria, speaking German, and enjoying good German food and drink.

The German Club, along with the Notre Dame Department of German and Russian Languages and Literatures, sponsors a number of social and cultural events throughout the academic year. Visit the Calendar of Events for information on upcoming events.
