Stay Warm with Hot Cocoa, Coffee, and Tea [Free with Mug]

22 Feb

It’s still winter, but spring isn’t TOO far away.  Warm up with free hot chocolate, coffee, and tea in the UHP office.  It might not be the fanciest, but it’s free!  All we ask is that you bring your own vessel.

Please bring your mugs and reusable cups for free refills of your favorite hot beverage.  Mother Earth thanks you.

Don’t Put Strange Things In Your Mouth

19 Jan

That's Manners!

The UHP is happy to let you guzzle all the coffee, tea, and hot chocolate you care to drink (provided you bring your own mugs, of course.)

But in order to continue to provide this perk, we’ll need your help.  Please follow these simple rules of good manners when you’re in our kitchen.  Most of you are pretty great about it, but there are occasions when some students seem to forget their manners at home.

1) Clean up after yourself. If something spills, take care of it.  If you need help, don’t hesitate to ask the front desk.  Mice (and even rats, eek!) can become a pretty serious problem in our kitchen if it’s not kept clean.

2) Stay out of the fridge. We’ve helped by posting a large sign that says “STAFF ONLY.”  When you see it, think “Am I staff?”  If the answer is “No, I am not staff,” then please keep the door shut.  That’s where we keep our lunches.  It’s not where we keep your lunches.

3) Stay out of the cabinets. The cabinets are hot lava, and you lose if you touch them. If you’re looking for something, ask the front desk.  We’re happy to help!

4) Don’t use mugs you find in the kitchen.  Those mugs aren’t orphans waiting for you to adopt them — they belong to staff of the UHP.  We know sometimes you forget your own mugs, but that doesn’t mean you can use a stranger’s.  This rule pretty much boils down to “Don’t put something in your mouth if you don’t know where it’s been.”

UnCommon Ground

Friday, Dec. 10th, 2010 at 7:30 p.m.
Betts Theater in the Marvin Center

What are the joys and challenges of being female and Muslim at a secular university in a post-9/11 world?

Supported in part by a grant from Columbian College Facilitating Fund, Professor Leslie Jacobson has been working with GW students in the Department of Theatre and Dance, TRDA colleague Jodi Kanter, and Radha Kramer, Founding Director of the TE’A (Theatre of Engagement and Action) Project, since January, 2009, developing a performance piece exploring identity, belief, religious faith, and the “other”.

These TRDA students engaged in meaningful conversations with over twenty Muslim GW students, and the resulting shared stories were woven into a 75-minute performance set to premier here at GW on Dec. 10th, before touring it to other area university campuses in the Spring 2011 semester.
