Societies, Clubs and Culture
As a German Studies student, you’ll discover that some of the best lessons are learned outside the classroom. We give you plenty of opportunities to explore every aspect of German culture – from coffee meet-ups to academic clubs.
German Honor Society - Delta Phi Alpha
This notable society, which helps promote the study of the German language, literature and civilization, seeks to recognize academic excellence as well as provide an incentive for higher scholarship. It emphasizes the aspects of German life and culture that are universally valuable and contribute to humankind’s search for peace and truth. NC State’s chapter, Lambda Sigma, was established in 2005 and gives students a connection to local German events. Society members celebrate German holidays such as Unification Day, Oktoberfest and Weihnachten; dine out at German restaurants; and attend German movies, concerts and plays.
NC State German Club - Deutschklub
Everyone is welcome to join this student organization, which focuses on the fun side of German life. The group meets for weekly chats (in German, of course) as well as for opportunities to play board games, watch movies, go hiking and gather for Kochfest (parties with German food). Visit the club’s website for more information, and be sure to get on the listserv for updated activities.
