Everyone works hard to provide opportunities for students to engage with their peers and faculty. Our coffee hours are designed to provide relaxing opportunities to discuss research, current events and school programs. The discussions can be controversial like National Security Administration practices or First Amendment issues. Sometimes they are about travel abroad experiences. The topics vary, but the snacks are free and the coffee is always hot!
