Activities

At Valpo, we know that learning doesn’t stop when you leave the classroom.
Activities
Emily and Chris build the German Club’s replica of the Berlin Wall at Homecoming; children of Valpo alumni were responsible for tearing it down!

You can take advantage of a wide variety of activities that will enhance your learning and are fun besides.

  • German Club
  • Bratfest – kick-off picnic
  • Fastnachtsfeier – annual dance
  • Trips to the Chicago Lyric Opera
  • Theaterfest – hosting area high schools for theatrical presentations and performance
  • Kaffeestunde each Friday afternoon (coffee, cookies, and conversation)
  • Interaction with exchange students from Germany, including the Josef Eberle Exchange Students
  • Exhibits, film festivals and lectures, like those given by Joseph Eberle Visiting Scholars
  • Homecoming activities (the German House has won the “Spirit Stick” several times!)
