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. Events at CGE will resume on April 6th.

It serves as both a cultural experience for the campus community as well as a fundraiser for partnering student organizations.
