Diversity Week Update

German students will actually be participating in Diversity Week on Wednesday the 25th. Do not show up on Monday! Unless you intend to learn about some other cultures, of course. We need volunteers for each lunch period. There is a sign up sheet in Herr Kandah's classroom. Please remember to sign up and show up Wednesday the 25th in the learning lab during lunch!

Diversity Week

At today's rather low-key meeting, we discussed Enloe's upcoming Diversity Week (February 23-27) and what German Club will be doing to represent German culture. We are going to have a booth set up on Monday the 23rd during all three lunches, and we need volunteers! Please, do not skip class out of enthusiasm for German. Only sign up for your lunch period. We will be displaying all aspects of German culture through flags, soccer jerseys, music, pretzels, and a video of Oktoberfest revelry, among other things. Let us know if you have any ideas or can supply us with anything else. You are encouraged to wear Lederhosen or a Dirndl!

We also discussed Herr Kandah's t-shirt design, which seems to have widespread approval (despite the lack of participation in a related poll). I know it will come as a disappointment to some of you, but Herr Kandah's face will not be appearing on any t-shirts anytime soon.
