Afternoon break promises treats and talk

A pop-up Fika Café in the student centre commons today — Thursday, March 23 — 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. Thursday’s event, hosted by the CAW Student Centre and co-sponsored by the International Student Centre, is open free of charge to students, faculty, and staff at 2 p.m. — while supplies last.

“We held a similar event in January and it was so well-attended, we’re staging a repeat,” says Sandra Riccio-Muglia, director of events and programming for the student centre. “Students really enjoyed tasting different coffees, teas, and desserts, and this time we’re featuring new flavours.”
