Afternoon Tea with Professors & Other Notables
What is Afternoon Tea?
Afternoon Tea is an informal conversation between a professor (or other distinguished guest) and intellectually curious students over tea and other refreshments. It is an forum to share knowledge with those who would exchange it freely with you. It also provides an all-too-scarce opportunity to engage in intellectual discussion with members of the University faculty on topics of academic import.
When are Afternoon Teas held?
