The French Club was formed to bring together students interested in France, its people and its culture. Throughout the year the club sponsors several social gatherings, films and lectures, as well as "la table française," a table in the dining hall for those who wish to engage in informal French conversation during lunch. "Vive la France!"
The German Club was formed to provide interested students with the opportunity to speak German outside the classroom and to become acquainted with the history and culture of the country. The club's activities include: trips to a German restaurant, films, speakers, picnics, a monthly conversation-game hour, slides and travel lectures by students, Christmas caroling and other holiday celebrations, gatherings with students and faculty from VMI (Virginia Military Institute) and W&L (Washington and Lee University), and a traditional German dinner. There is also a German table in the dining hall each week. All interested students are encouraged to participate in the club's activities, in order to create an atmosphere of Gemütlichkeit among the German-speaking community.
This club was formed with a mission to provide more diversity and communication to the SBC community. Club activities include cooking, games, crafting, traditional Chinese festival celebration parties, nail painting and other fun things. One event is held each month and they often collaborate with other international clubs. There are no club fees required.
