Coffee & Conversation

We’d like to invite our entire UCF Sociology graduate learning community to an afternoon Coffee and Conversation hour on Monday, January 22 from 1:30-2:30 in the Howard Phillips Hall Sociology Main Office Area. We will provide coffee, tea, and sweets. This is a great opportunity to meet up, chat informally with each other, and share in conversation as a community outside of formal classes.

In addition to the casual conversation, our graduate program leaders will be available to answer any questions you might have about the new College summer class policies.
