First International Coffee Hour of Spring 2015: A Big Success!

Every month during the academic year, the Office of International Education and Global Jackets, a multicultural student organization, co-sponsor International Coffee Hour. All members of the GT community are invited to attend this on-going event full of coffee, snacks, and fun activities which takes place in the Student Center Tech Rec.

The first Coffee Hour of the spring semester took place on Monday, January 12th and acted as a Welcome Party for new students.  More than 250 students attended for a night of bowling, billiards, foosball, and air hockey. More importantly, new students had the opportunity to make new friends from both the U.S and abroad.
