Preview: Coffee events at Purdue

Purdue is hosting two types of events this semester that allow students to come hang out and drink coffee. (What college kid doesn’t need coffee every now and again, right?)

The first event is Coffee and Canvas. This event includes free Starbucks drinks and food, painting, and music. This sounds like an awesome study break to me and who doesn’t love free Starbucks? This also sounds like a great opportunity to try a sample of a drink you’ve never had before.

Here’s all you need to know about the event:

  • What day? February 9 and February 16
  • What time? 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Where? Union Commons
  • How to sign up? Go to the PSUB office in room 268. The office is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Don’t forget your student ID and $5!

This next type of event has been going on since 1951. Books and Coffee is a series put on by the English Department. In February, three different faculty members will be choosing books to discuss and coffee will be provided. This sounds like a perfect way to connect with faculty members, get some caffeine, and learn about some great, new books.

It gets even better though because on March 23 President Mitch Daniels will be leading the discussion! (Coffee, books, and my man Mitch. There’s no way I’m missing this.)

  • What day? March 23
  • What time? 4 p.m. to 5 p.m.
  • Where? Reception in Ringel Gallery in Stewart Center and discussion in Fowler Hall
  • What book? Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow
  • Who can come? Everyone

Check out the other Books and Coffee events too.

I can’t wait for these events and I hope all you students out there reading this, get a chance to check them out too.
