German Language House

The study of German at Colorado College does not end in the classroom. Our students are an integral part of extracurricular and departmental activities. Over the years, many have gone on to great things but have remained loyal alumni.

The Max Kade House is the German Department's own language theme house on the CC campus. Designed as a full-time residence for 15 students, the German House provides a fantastic atmosphere in which to live and learn. It is also the base for the many extra-curricular German events such as lectures, musical events, Christmas, Fasching and Oktoberfest parties and especially the Kaffeklatsch every Wednesday 15:30 to 16:30 (except the last Wednesday of the block). Everyone interested in German language, culture and meeting interesting people is invited to come.

Cultural Program Coordinator- Michael Seyler- 2018-19

Hi! My name is Michael, I am 22 years old and I grew up in Regensburg - a beautiful town in the heart of Bavaria. After finishing high school in 2014, I took a year off and travelled through New Zealand and Great Britain. In 2015, I came back to Regensburg and started to study Mathematics and English for the teacher-training program for secondary education at our local university. My most beloved hobbies are acting in the theatre, shooting movies and travelling, which is also why I love being part of cultural projects and meeting new people. I am very grateful for the opportunity to spend my year abroad studying and working at CC and I am looking forward to meeting all of you at the Kaffeklatsch or some other event at the German House. I am sure we will have a great time! :)

The German House is distinguished by its comfortable interior. During the summers of 1997 and 2011, the German House underwent significant remodeling.

In addition to general improvements and redecoration, a brand-new kitchen, dedicated billiards room, and easy access for the disabled were added.

The beautiful Benedictine garden & fish pond invite the students to relax and enjoy their beautiful surroundings.

Computer resources and an international satellite television system are located in the 'Garden House' next door.

If you have any questions about living in the German House, contact the German program.
