We will serve hot soup and other foods and refreshments as you mingle with peers and connect over conversation starters and networking activities in a warm and welcoming environment.
This event is a great opportunity to meet new and different contacts from diverse regions, re-connect and share information, tips and experiences with each other.
The soup and refreshments will include vegetarian, vegan, dairy and gluten-free options (i.e. lentil soup) as well as meat options, but do come in the earlier part of the event when there will be greater quantity.
Want to get involved on campus, but confused or overwhelmed by all the possible choices of clubs and activities? If you are unsure about what you want or how to get there, you are not alone!
