The German House, located in Porter House, provides its residents with an environment that encourages and facilitates the speaking of German and the exploration of the culture of German speaking countries.
"Germany is more than beer and BMW's, and Porter House is much more than 'Oktoberfest' and nice rooms. The German section provides for house members a place where they can find out more about contemporary life in the German speaking countries and hone their language skills outside the classroom in an informal, fun and relaxed setting." ~ Sigrit Schutz, Former German House Advisor and Senior Lecturer of German
There is typically an open house every February and applications for the theme houses are accepted at that time for the following academic year.
