Max Kade Activities

Max Kade has two weekly and special events throughout the academic year, culminating in a trip to a German-speaking city in the spring. Here are some highlights:


Kaffeestunde is a weekly opportunity to mingle and unwind "auf Deutsch". The RA coordinates themes and activities to allow residents to learn about German-speaking areas, culture, and issues.


Deutschtisch is a weekly event in the North Quad dining hall for residents and guests to speak German during a meal.

The German Experience

The German Experience is an outreach event open to the entire U-M community. During this event, Max Kade residents have interactive stations to educate attendees about the German-speaking city to which they will travel for the spring trip.
