The International Coffee Hour is a recurring, monthly event that is open to international students during the fall and spring semesters. The Coffee Hour provides a casual environment to meet and mingle with students, faculty, and staff from across the university. Attending this event gives you a great opportunity to make new friends from all around the world, sample food from their home countries, and learn more about their countries, history, traditions and customs. At the end of each semester, international graduates are honored at a special graduation coffee hour. We look forward to seeing you all at the Coffee Hour!
