    No Fees ... No Assignments ... No Grades ... Free Pizza!

    What is ChatLive?

    ChatLive is a series of informal, face‐to‐face discussions over lunch (FREE PIZZA!) where you can explore interesting ideas with other students. Facilitated by a different faculty member each week, we discuss thought‐provoking topics and current issues. All CapU students are welcome.




    Thursdays at 11:30am to 12:30pm
