The Max Kade German Residence, a Michigan Learning Community, offers students a unique opportunity to live in the only language house on campus. The core theme of the Max Kade Haus is experiential learning – applying what is learned in one's German classes to everyday life. Enhance your cross-cultural understanding and German proficiency with like-minded residents!
