UAA hosts local high school students for 2017 German Day
by Michelle Saport |
The 17th annual German Day will be held this Friday, March 3. The main event will start in Rasmuson Hall, Room 101. About 140 German-learning high school students from Bartlett, Dimond, East, Service and West will have the opportunity to meet UAA's German faculty as well as German majors and minors. They will learn about UAA students' college experience and receive an overall picture of college life. Furthermore, they will learn about the German major, German-related opportunities and other disciplines at UAA, as well as explore German culture through trivia, presentations, interactive activities and theme-related instruction during a 45-minute long class session. A German-themed lunch will be served at the Creekside Cafeteria in the Lee Gorsuch Commons. On the way to the cafeteria, students will also complete a scavenger hunt. This year's theme is German art and architecture.
This event is in recognition of the long-standing collaboration between the UAA Department of Languages' German Program and the Anchorage School District. The event is co-sponsored by the UAA Department of Languages, UAA German Program, UAA German Culture Club and Alaska Chapter of the American Association for Teachers of German (AATG).
