Meet, Greet, and Eat

Meet, greet and eat with friends!

What is Meet, Greet and Eat?

In collaboration with Creative Collective and the Global Student Centre, we are excited to introduce "Meet, Greet, and Eat" - a safe and inclusive space for students to hang out, meet new people, eat lunch together, and participate in fun and creative crafts. 

No material? No problem!

Our creative crafts will use supplies that are commonly found in every student's home! All activities are optional. 

Enjoy doing crafts or simply hang out and connect with others.

All students are welcome!
