Summer session at Florida State University is being held online, but so are many of their student activities! The FSU Center for Global Engagement is now hosting their weekly International Coffee Hour virtually.
The past few semesters, on Fridays from 5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m., students, faculty, and staff at Florida State University have had the opportunity to experience coffee from all over the world at their weekly International Coffee Hour event. At this weekly event, attendees would visit The Globe to learn about different cultures and try new food and drink from these respective cultures.
Now, each Friday, from 5:00 p.m.-6:30 p.m. Virtual International Coffee Hour is being held via Zoom so that “we can all stay connected and continue to support each other in these challenging times,” the CGE said on Facebook. At 5:00 p.m., a live cooking demonstration will take place and teach attendees how to make unique snacks. The Wednesday before the event, a list of ingredients and instructions will be posted on the CGE’s Facebook page for reference.
When the cooking demonstration concludes, small Zoom groups will be formed and allow a space for discussion about the featured food, culture, coffee, or anything else that may be of interest.
