This Semester’s Capstone Projects

One of the most fun parts of the end of the semester, other than treats and snacks of course, or when demons unexpectedly pop in for a visit, is when classes get to strut their stuff during their capstone projects!  Several of the German and Russian classes did some really exciting capstone projects this semester, and here are some of the highlights:

Professor McAllister’s GES students made movies recreating classic stories in a modern setting.

Check out their take on Michael Kohlhaas:

Or Wilhelm Tell:


Professor Clark’s Advanced Russian students also had a good time when they took over the classroom for the last two weeks of the semester!  They taught classes on topics as varied as

Russian football:


Ded Moroz (Grandfather Frost) vs. Santa Claus:

Russian rap:

Our in-class demonstration was nearly as entertaining as the clip we watched beforehand!

Hopefully this retrospective will keep everyone’s spirits up for exams!  Ни пуха ни пера!
