Humphrey's Cafe

Humphrey's Cafe is a space on campus where students can hang out, snack, and take after school activities at their own pace. Open Mondays, most Wednesdays, and Thursdays, Humphrey's converts Founders Hall into a private cafe for 601 students. Students will be able to "order" snack items at no extra cost and find a table to work on art projects, tinkering, board games, and more! Teachers will be on hand to facilitate projects and provide supplies, but the energy and direction will come from the students.
