    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(s) each week, we discuss thought-provoking topics and current issues. All CapU students are welcome.
