Fasching: A German Karneval Dance Party

Missed celebrating on Fat Tuesday? German Haus, Open House, and the Hewitt and Butterfields RAs are giving you a second chance! Go crazy like it’s the last weekend of die närrische Saison (the foolish season)!

Carnival or Mardi Gras goes by many names in German, depending on the region and dialect: Karneval (Rhineland, former Roman settlements), Fasching (Austria, Bavaria, Berlin), Fastnacht (Baden, Switzerland), Fosnat (Franconia) or Fasnet (Swabia). Whether it’s Fasching or Karneval, it is a time to let off steam and live it up before the Lenten period that once called for fasting (die Fastenzeit).

We’ll be giving away BEADS and MASKS! Costumes encouraged!

No exposed boobies please, this is a nice Reslife event. Crazy dancing and fun-having is welcomed however.

Facebook event here.

Date: Saturday, Feb. 20th
Time: 11pm – 2am

Goodbye Lenin! Film Showing

Come watch “Goodbye Lenin!“, a tragicomedy that explores how East Germans dealt with the total collapse of their state. A fascinating look at one of the more dramatic periods of modern history.

Winner of several awards, including Best Actor, Best Film, Best Screenwriter, and Best Foreign Language Film.
