Johnson University’s Student Government Association kicked off the annual Coffee House series Monday with a load of talent and friendship, and of course — coffee.
Starting at 7 p.m., the student lounge in the Eubanks Activity Center was energized with more than 100 students.
The first Coffee House of the year began festively with a rendition of “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.” The song filled the air as students took advantage of the $1 coffee and found seats among the couches and chairs.
“The atmosphere that we strive to create at Coffee House is one that embodies community,” said senior Hope Smyth, executive director of the Major Events Committee for SGA. “We want students to be able to share talents that may be hidden because day-to-day life doesn’t permit them to share their talents.”
Smyth said Coffee House is an opportunity to socialize and for students to take a break from homework and work.
