3. GLC CAFÉ – FRENCH EDITION?
Thursday, Jul 14, 3:30-5:00pm, GLC Reading Room or West Patio (Bookstore side behind the shrubs)
The weekly GLC café is offered every Thursday when VT is open. Summer café may be on the West Patio when the weather is nice, complete with a game of cornhole or giant Jenga. Enjoy free coffee, tea and cookies and the occasional fresh lemonade or other surprises in the company of your grad student friends and colleagues. Relax, network, meet new people. This Thursday is Bastille Day – maybe we will have something French-inspired. Macaroons? Baguettes?  Croissant sandwiches?
