Get Involved

From campus clubs to community events, there are plenty of ways to explore a new language and culture, meet people, and get to know the local region.

Here are a few ways to get involved:

Club Francophone

Parlez-vous français? For beginning, intermediate, and advanced French speakers. Drop by if you want to learn, teach, or just enjoy some company. 

Meetings are Fridays in the Behavioral and Social Sciences Building, Room 209. Please call (707) 826-3226 for times. Coffee, tea, and snacks provided. Feel free to bring something to share.

German Club

The purpose and mission of the German Club is to bring students, staff, and faculty together on the basis of a mutual interest in expanding knowledge and appreciation of the German country, language, cultural practices, and history. Other German-speaking countries such as Switzerland, Austria, and Liechtenstein will also receive attention. 

The German Club strives to meet its purpose and mission through regular meetings and events in which club members will have the opportunity to use the German language, share cultural knowledge, and exchange stories in relaxed, fun, and inclusive environments. Hosting or participating in volunteer projects and events that enhance the larger community of Cal Poly Humboldt or local municipalities is encouraged for club officers and club members, as well as collaboration with other cultural organizations on the Humboldt campus and in the local community. Please call (707) 826-3226 for meeting times and location.

Spanish Translation and Interpretation Club

For students from all majors who are interested in the ways Spanish and English are translated from text to text and interpreted from speakers to audiences. The club provides translation and interpretation services to individuals and community organizations from schools and businesses to nonprofits. All students are welcome, from beginners to bilingual speakers. This is a perfect club to enrich one’s Spanish and English speaking and writing skills. 

The club is supervised and supported by a Spanish faculty member. For more information contact Agustín Amaro, Director at or (707) 502-4343.
