Afternoon break promises a chance to socialize

A pop-up Fika Café in the student centre commons today — Tuesday, Jan. 24 —will give members of the campus community a chance to get together for coffee, tea, and treats from around the world.

Fika is a Swedish custom combining a coffee break with company. Tuesday’s event, hosted by the student centre in partnership with the International Student Centre, is open to students, faculty, and staff from 1 to 3:30 p.m. and is free of charge — while supplies last.

“There’s no better way to meet and mingle than over food and drink,” says Sandra Riccio-Muglia, director of events and programming for the student centre. “During Lancer Care Week, we wanted to invite people to take a mindful break and also to indulge in some delicious fresh desserts.”
