Intellectual Encounters

 

 

Professors' busy schedules and heavy workloads many times prevent students from spending much time with their teachers outside of the classroom setting. These casual meetings over tea and coffee help students chat with scholars and intellectuals about their academic interests, but also share in the advice or mentorship of accomplished individuals.
