"The German program here is one of the best programs ever; the professors and program itself are amazing. I feel like this Oktoberfest gives people who would have never thought of anything outside of their own culture a way to broaden their cultural horizons."--Student Patricia Musileck on ECU's Oktoberfest, sponsored by the Student Activities Board.

"My boyfriend is a German major, so he always brings me to the German club events. I was skeptical at first [ . . .]. But after meeting the professors, I immediately felt comfortable. [. . .] One time, he brought me to the Laternenfest, which is a celebration of St. Martin, a military man who gave a poor man part of his cloak during a cold night. The tradition is to make lanterns and walk around lighting up the night, which looks breathtaking. I had a great time getting all crafty and learning all about the traditions. Being more culturally aware is definitely a good feeling."--Leila Falls, The East Carolinian, 27 October 2009.
