A late-night snack option is coming to a special interest house near you. Coffee on College is student-run cooperative café offering responsibly sourced coffee, tea, baked goods and meals every Monday through Thursday from 8-11 p.m. Held in French/Slow Food House, the café’s walls will be decorated with student art and bulletin boards advertising on-campus activity. Special events will be held in the basement of the café, including musical performances, skill trades, speakers and movie projections. The café will also hold discount nights such as Buc Nation Night, during which students wearing Bucs gear will receive cheaper services.

Those interested in contributing can dedicate a few hours per week to working in Coffee on College.  In exchange, they’ll gain the ability to sell their goods. A percentage of the proceeds will go back into the co-op for communal expenses and another percentage will be donated to charity.

Sat., Nov. 12 will introduce the first Coffee on College event with a coffee hour starting at 7:30 p.m. featuring the Beehive Collective and their works. All proceeds from this event will go to the Collective to support the work they are doing. Students interested in being a part of the Coffee on College legacy, or fundraising opportunities, should speak with Keston Geistwalker or email him at geistwalkerk@beloit.edu.
