The Languages Department revives a longtime LVC tradition to celebrate the study of the German language, and some Pennsylvania Dutch, with central Pennsylvania high school students.

High school students currently taking German classes will come to LVC on April 13. They will interact with current LVC students from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.-including those who have studied abroad in Germany-as well as professors Dr. Jöerg Meindl, associate professor of German, and Dr. Rick Chamberlin, associate professor of German and French, while participating in various language enrichment activities.
