Community Café at the Honors College brings community leaders and students together to share experiences, discover opportunities, and develop partnerships that will benefit both community partners and students. A variety of coffee, teas, baked goods, and fresh fruit is provided for all to share.
Sessions are weekly on Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 3:50 p.m. in the Honors College Seminar Room on the 37th floor of the Cathedral of Learning (go to floor 36 and then take the small elevator up to 37).
