FRIDAY MORNING COFFEE - Redesigned as a virtual program.
The ZOOM FRIDAY COFFEE offers a chance for Stanford internationals and local CCIS volunteers to chat informally in small groups. This ONLINE gathering is held every Friday from 10:30 to 12 noon.

This is a chance for international spouses to make friends and to learn about opportunities to enhance their life here in the Bay Area. Postdocs and visiting scholars are welcome to join the online conversation as well.

Register by sending an email request to ragnak@stanford.edu. Once registered, you will receive weekly notices that include the Zoom access information.

Friday Morning Coffee is co-sponsored by CCIS and the Bechtel Center.

For Internationals

The previous in-person Friday Morning Coffee program has been suspended due to COVID-19 concerns. We plan to return to the original format when the health situation allows. The traditional Friday Morning Coffee took place at the Bechtel International Center every Friday between 10 and 12 noon, and included a children’s singing time.

Both the suspended (in-person format) and our new Zoom format offer a chance for international spouses to make friends and learn about how they can pursue their interests or education in the Stanford area. We welcome Stanford’s international community to be part of this lively, informal gathering when it resumes. Two female international spouses enjoy Friday Morning Coffee via Zoom.

For CCIS Volunteers

Friday Coffee Volunteers help welcome new international spouses and families and introduce them to other internationals and to local resources related to their individual needs and interests.

CCIS Volunteers play a number of roles, from greeting and providing local information to newly arrived families to engaging attendees in English practice and helping them get acquainted with one another.
