Experience cuisine and cultures from around the world at the Center for Global Engagement's featured program – Global Café – held on select Fridays starting at 11:30 am until food runs out. This student-centered program was designed to increase awareness and appreciation of the cultural diversity on our campus.
Global Café provides the opportunity to spend a culturally enriching lunch hour eating authentic food, listening to music, and meeting students from the featured culture. It serves as both a cultural experience for the campus community as well as a fundraiser for partnering student organizations. You can enjoy this unique experience in the Globe Dining Room for just $10 per plate. Cash or check only.
