International Café Hour

Each month, join us for a new International Café Hour at Deet's Place from 4-6 p.m. on selected Fridays once a month, where each Café Hour highlights a different country or region represented by students here at Virginia Tech.

This monthly program brings students, faculty, staff, and community members together over complimentary refreshments, light international food, and conversation. Registered Student Organizations (RSO) at Virginia Tech host each International Café Hour in partnership with Cranwell International Center and Dining Services. Financial support for supplies is provided to each RSO. This program is designed to be both social and educational.
