Dear Friends of Germanics and Alums:
Greetings and best wishes from Condon Hall as we are getting ready for the academic year ahead. Special thanks go to our administrator, Stephanie Welch, for graciously orchestrating the Department’s move earlier this summer. With this laborious task behind us now, we are enjoying our spacious new faculty offices and the fantastic views of Mount Rainier and the Space Needle in our temporary location in Condon Hall. We look forward to welcoming new faculty and student members to the Department and to welcoming back those colleagues who were on sabbatical last year. And we are very glad to enjoy our esteemed colleague Charles Barrack’s company for one more quarter as he plans to retire by the end of this year. Here are some departmental stories and news we would like to share with you. As always, we are looking forward to hearing from our alums.
Professor of German and Chair
