The Stanford German Student Association was founded in 1997 to provide a forum for Stanford affiliates with an interest in German language and culture. We bring together and strengthen the German and German-interested community at Stanford, including its extensive alumni network in Silicon Valley and Germany. Through social events, knowledge-sharing sessions, and networking evenings, the SGSA fosters the exchange of ideas between Silicon Valley and Germany, connects Stanford students to career paths in Germany, and promotes German cultural values within the Stanford community.

In recent years, the SGSA organized and co-organized a variety of major events on Stanford campus that attracted between 50 and 500 people. While most attendees at our events are German or German speaking, we encourage everyone interested to join or participate. 

Currently about 600 people are subscribed to the SGSA mailing list. There is no formal membership of the Stanford German Student Association, nor are there any membership fees. We encourage you to join our mailing list and attend any of our events. If you wish to propose or organize an event, please do not hesitate to contact us. We greatly appreciate your help.
