German Club hike

It has been an eventful year for the German Club! At the beginning of fall semester, we explored Boulder’s beautiful landscape on an immersion hike looping the flatirons. In October, we partied to the tunes of Festzeltmusik and with delicious Oktoberfest food. We also learned about the history and significance of the potato for German society at the Russian-German-Nordic Potato Festival and we tested several potato and non-potato recipes during German cooking sessions. Throughout the year, the German Club organized film and game nights. We watched the entire season of Deutschland 83 and a mix of romantic, comedy, and dramatic German productions in spring semester. We have become experts in the German version of Apples to Apples and acquired some interesting knowledge while playing German trivia games such as Klugscheißer. In spring semester, the German Club represented Germany at CU International Festival and was invited to network with local businesses and seek advice from alumni during the annual German Career Event. The year came to an end with a relaxed picnic by Varsity Lake.
