On the weekend of April 5-6, the Wisconsin Lutheran College East Lawn was taken over by a Revolutionary War Encampment coordinated by Rose G., a History major and German minor at WLC.
The camp officially opened at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday and included demonstrations such as wool processing and spinning, French bayonet practice, and a French musket drill.
Participants were dressed in Revolutionary War attire and welcomed questions to any curious passersby. Rose even used her German to explain some of the demonstrations and practices to visiting German speakers.

On April 8 in the Campus Center, students from the German Literature II course presented their research on a literary figure from the top German literary epochs from the 18th and 19th centuries. The students also chose a work of said author and explained to inquirers the meaning of the work and what the work meant to them.
To go along with the different literary tastes, there were also German desserts available for everyone to enjoy.

This year is the inaugural year of the German Club. Though German students have always participated in activities together in the past, this is the first year there has been an official club. For the first event of the year, students participated in eine Schnitzeljagd, the German version of a scavenger hunt. Students had clues in German about famous places and landmarks on the WLC campus and did not get their next clue until they found the place on their original clue. The top three winners received prizes of delicious German snacks.

German 202 students Karlene and Caroline caught a break from their classes and recently worked together to make a tasty German dish. They selected a few dishes in class from one of Professor Krause’s cookbooks.
Frau Krause picked up the ingredients and brought along the supplies, then they had class in one of the residence hall kitchens.
The students made Geschnetzeltes (left), spaetzle, and green beans, and for dessert they made mousse-au-chocolate. It was nice to take a break from normal classes and enjoy some new dishes together!
Caroline blends the ingredients.
Caroline and Karlene sit down and enjoy the delicious meal they have made.
