"Gemütlichkeit" is kind of pronounced as "ge-moot-lish-kite". Bless you? No, it has nothing to do with sneezing or saying "Gesundheit!" It is the German club on campus. "Gemütlichkeit" is one of those wonderful German words that cannot easily be translated in one word. It basically means coziness or leisureliness, and calls up a certain comfy atmosphere in which friends take time to talk and enjoy each other's company.
"Gemütlichkeit"-members describe the club as a club "with a German influence" and stress that it also includes those students who do not speak German but are interested in the cultures of Germany, Austria, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein. The club members hold regular club meetings, communicate online on Facebook, and they also meet regularly in the Charlie Brown Café next to the library for "Kaffeestunde". That's when they speak German over a cup of coffee. Why not join them there? Feel free to drop by if you want to refresh your German or simply meet some German students on campus & get involved in club activities. This is currently suspended for the semester and will resume when we are back on campus.
If you are interested in German cinema, watch for flyers about our weekly film series and Facebook announcements to learn what films are shown, and when and where.
If you would like to join our German Club, check out the campus organizations web page and create your account. We would love to have you! All current events will be posted as well as on our Facebook group. Tschüs und bis bald!"
