Immersion Day for 100 CT German High School Students

On November 14, almost 100 students taking German at Mansfield, Cheshire and Westport High Schools joined us on the UConn, Storrs, campus to hear an impressive talk by Alex Dumschott (Eurotech alumnus) about how he applied his German language and culture knowledge in his career; get a taste of German classes here at UConn from our own graduate students, Juntao Li, Robert Zatryb and Daniel Quintero-Plata; and compete in a Quiz Bowl with each other and win trophies! Thank you to Prof. Manuela Wagner for an inspiring presentation to the instructors, Steffie Wille, Sarah Smith, Kristin Haase, Angela Gulielmetti, and Liuba Ulianova, and to Kristin Soprano from Career Services for enhancing Alex Dumschott’s information about careers with a German Studies degree.

The full program is available below. Thank you to the entire ECE staff for making this full immersion day a lasting success and for inaugurating what will become a much-anticipated yearly event for all ECE German Studies programs in the state.
