We know the important role of caffeine during this week, so we invite you to come over to the Admissions Office and have a cup of coffee or hot chocolate. We will be hosting this improvised version of coffee hour on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of finals week. So come over and get a warm drink!
