The German Section has hosted the annual German-American Day event. This event is centered around the national holiday of the same name which was designed to honor German-American citizens and their contributions to American culture and society. The EMU celebration of this event centers around the following:

‐ to provide EMU students with an on-campus cultural event (participating EMU student earn Learning Beyond the Classroom Gen. Ed. credits)

‐ an opportunity to work together with the students of the German Club, who
also help to host and fund the event
‐ to highlight features of the EMU German program and the department in
