Coffee Chats

Coffee Chats are informal gatherings to connect with alums over coffee and doughnuts. Come and go as your schedule allows and ask questions about life after Goucher, career choices, living in the working world, and everything in between. There’s nothing to prepare just show up and have some doughnuts! Come as you are, leave when you need to, no pressure!
