When First Friday Tea reappears on campus this week, it will be located in a new spot – the Fourth Floor Board Room. Everything else this Fri., Nov. 2, will be familiar – tea and scones and clotted cream, 2 to 3:30 p.m. timeframe, relaxing conversation with colleagues. Only the place is changed this month because of a scheduling conflict.
Chartwells staff members, hosts for this week’s Tea, promise a few special treats as well as the familiar favorites of a traditional Irish/English tea. They are planning a few surprises, so come prepared to be amused as well as tempted by new menu items.
Faculty and staff from all SXU locations are invited and encouraged to come to First Friday Tea. Sponsored by the Office for University Mission and Heritage to foster a sense of community among staff and faculty, First Friday Tea honors Saint Xavier’s core value of hospitality and its Sister of Mercy heritage. Do you know the Mercy story of the “comfortable cup of tea”? If not, come on Fri., Nov. 2, to find out.
