Coffee Break

We are excited to invite you to the next PHAS DGA’s coffee break session. This is a wonderful opportunity to take a breather, enjoy a cup of coffee, and connect with fellow graduate students.

Our kickoff session will be held on Monday June 24 at 12 PM in SB324. We’re planning to make these coffee breaks a monthly event throughout the summer, providing a regular chance for us to unwind and share ideas.

Mark your calendar, and come join us for some coffee, conversations, and camaraderie. We look forward to seeing you there!
