Each month during the academic year, CIE organizes an international discussion series titled Coffee@CIE. The topic of discussion and panelists change each month and are always relevant to our Loyola and international communities. While all Coffee@CIE events in 2020-2021 have been virtual, we hope to be able to host at our office in Fall of 2021.
Past topics include:
Black Abroad - A student-led panel about the experiences of Black Loyola students while studying abroad.
Autumn Folklore - A discussion of global autumn folklore, holidays, myths, and festivals. International panelists shared their favorite stories and superstitions.
Queer Abroad - A conversation among fellow queer students about their experiences interacting with global cultures and the international education community during Study Abroad.
Carnival Edition - A live performance of traditional Brazilian Carnival music and discussion of similarities and differences between celebratory traditions in New Orleans and Brazil.
Latin American Coffee - An in-person Latin American coffee tasting event and online presentation from Loyola alumnus Pedro Benitez on Latin American coffee and the coffee industry.
