To accommodate everyone's schedules, the German Table will now be held twice a week: every Monday and Tuesday at noon on the balcony of McClurg. You do not need to be fluent in German to attend.

Students, faculty, staff, and community members who share a love of German Culture and the German language are encouraged to attend.
