Nikole Langjahr has been busier than ever: "Since the beginning of the academic year I have been serving as Director of Undergraduate Studies. I enjoy advocating for our students and advising them regarding degree options, and I am excited to be a part of a collaboration with the Walter Career Center starting in spring 2021. Our ever popular Stammtisch has turned into a "Zoomtisch" (and will remain so until August 2021), meeting twice a week. One unanticipated advantage has bee that we have had visitors zooming in from Georgia (USE), Canada, and Germany! You can imagine how much fun that is! I'm happy to say that I designed and am enthusiastically teaching my first culture course: "Gender and Sexuality in Germany." I delight in the "Aha!" moments of my students ("Oh, that's why Germans do/think/say …!") It's not been easy adjusting to the new COVID protocols, but there are wonderful things happening in spite of and maybe even because of them."
