German Homecoming

GERMAN HOMECOMING FESTIVITIES

After three years of renovation and construction, the Department of German has returned to Kresge Centennial Hall, where it had its base of operation from September 1954 to June 2013. To celebrate this return to a beautiful NEW KRESGE, the Department of German will host a Homecoming Reception and Dinner on Friday October 21, 2016.

The Department invites you to join our faculty, alumni and students at this gathering which will celebrate the teaching of German Language, Literature, History and Culture at Northwestern.  We will start out with a panel discussion on the Impact of German on the professional and personal life of our alums. Current German students will have a chance to ask questions. A reception with the WCAS Dean, Adrian Randolph, will follow during which he will introduce the new Kresge building and students will offer short tours to showcase our new teaching facilities. The festivities will be capped off with a dinner hosted by the German department for faculty and alums. We are inviting you to take part in all or only some of the events.
