Don’t get caught empty-handed and craving your daily peppermint, no-whip, mocha-with-an-extra shot between now and semester break! Take note of Starbucks’ holiday hours:Sbuckshours

You’d think the smell of fresh, hot coffee would attract a lot of attention on campus, especially if it’s FREE! That was the idea behind the new “Coffee Connect” launched last semester by the Graduate Programs Office. There’s been a growing turnout for the bi-monthly coffee break in the Frick Forum between classes, but fewer students have taken advantage of the chance to sip a free cup of java and mingle with professors, staff, and other students in Simon Hall. The event location alternates between the Forum and Simon.

As Jackie Carter explains in the video, Coffee Connect is still a new venture…and the organizers hope it will continue to grow and become an event that the whole Olin community looks forward to next semester and beyond.

The final Coffee Connect of the semester was held April 22 in Simon Hall.

Student Life reports today that final negotiations are underway between the business school and Starbucks for a cafe to be located in the Atrium of Knight and Bauer Halls, currently under construction on the Danforth Campus.

3094329703_f20d486ba0_zThe buildings are scheduled to be completed in March and the cafe and other food services would be located on the third floor (campus/Mudd Field level), of the five story complex.

Aramark, the company that currently manages the Knight Center and the eatery in the Law School, would operate the Starbucks franchise.
