Global Studies Hangout

Join us at our new Global Studies Hangouts! Every week, professors, heads of organizations, and professionals related to Global Studies will host a "hangout", where you can come for tea, coffee, snacks, and informal conversation. All current and prospective students are welcome (and encouraged) to come! Meet professors, students with similar interests, and others to learn about our world and opportunities for Global Studies students. The hangout will meet on Thursdays from 1:30-3:00 in Manoogian 443 unless otherwise indicated.
