German high school teachers can make arrangements with the German Outreach Coordinator to bring their German students to visit the IU Bloomington campus and the Germanic Studies Department for an orientation and information session. If time permits, the teacher and students may sit in on an actual class session, or enjoy a German-language tour of the treasures located in the IU Art Museum and Lilly Library. Please allow at least two weeks to make arrangements.
