German House

The Gisela Strand German House is an off-campus cottage (145 E. 14th St.) open to German students of at least Sophomore standing (women only!). The mission of the German House is to help students develop their German speaking in a non-classroom atmosphere. The German Assistant lives in the German House as well, so it's a great opportunity to practice with a native speaker for the whole year. The German House hosts a few German Club activities each semester and women living there may receive up to 1 adacemic credit as a kind of 'internship.' And ... you're OUT OF THE DORMS.

The Gisela Strand German House is named in honor of Prof. Gisela Strand who served the German department for many years and worked to make the German House a reality. She retired in 2002 and is already sorely missed!

If you are interested in applying to live in the German House, contact Professor Forester and send him this application form. The due date is February 15. Naturally it's good to plan ahead and try to rope some of your German-speaking friends into living together. This is a great opportunity for preparing for study in Germany: Live in the German House during Sophomore year, study in Freiburg/Berlin during Junior Year, come back and graduate and get on with life.
