Global Cafe

Students at Global Cafe doing various activities

Weekly Global Café's summer events have officially started! Themes and locations will be announced soon, check back here for more information or visit the IESC calendar.

  • Interested in meeting new people and staying connected with friends?
  • Do you want to take a break from your school work?
  • Would you like the chance to earn prizes while attending events?

Join us for informal gatherings where international and domestic students can connect, share and learn from each other in a relaxed and friendly setting. Each event you attend will earn you a chance to win a prize at the end of the summer. A new chance at prizes will start in September for everyone, even if you don't have a chance to attend any events during the summer.

Global Cafe takes place every Thursday from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is a great way to meet different people from all over the world! During the summer, Global Cafe operates every other Thursday, and the full list of dates for this summer are as follows:
