Cedarville University’s Student Life Programs office is working to change the perception that college students are glued to their phones, and it’s using discounted coffee to make it happen. Their new program, Coffee & Community, takes place on Tuesday nights from 7-10 p.m., in Rinnova, the campus coffee shop.
The idea originated five years ago as Brian Burns, director of student life programs (SLP), watched students interact more with technology than with their peers. Burns’ solution, Coffee & Community, is an easy way for students to come to a casual environment and experience true community.
