Global Café is a great resource and opportunity for students to connect with graduate student mentors to acquire the tools and resources necessary for conducting independent research, applying for grants or fellowships, writing an honors thesis, applying to graduate school, and more. The Global Café Event Series features conversations with unique, diverse speakers each quarter during the academic year. The small, workshop-style talks are a perfect opportunity to connect with alumni, graduate students, and international scholars.
