COFFEE HOUSE

 

Coffee House this Friday (November 18th) at 7pm!

Coffee House is an event where students are able to showcase their artistic and musical talents.  Come out and enjoy the live music and artistic talents of your engineering peers!  Remember to bring your own mug for some free hot chocolate and coffee!  Just to let everyone know sign-up for performing is now closed, but there is another Coffee House in the winter semester that you will have a chance to perform at if you missed out this time.

 

Looking for visual artists!

 

We wanted to ask if there are any students that would be interested in displaying their artwork during the event?  This is a nice chance to show your peers how talented you are and get some recognition for your amazing artistic skills!  In the past people have displayed photographs, paintings, drawings, you name it!  If interested in displaying your art please contact Tiana at: tmistry@mail.uoguelph.ca.
