Each department has their own traditions, French Press has become deeply ingrained in the life and identity of the program. As it may sound, this sacred space revolves around coffee. Weekly, the department shares a meal together and bonds at the appointed time they all reach towards the infamous pot and all push down together.
This seemingly small act has acted as a glue of sorts for the department even being recognized at commencement as all members receive a patch to wear during the festivities. Regardless of your academic program as a Central student, you are invited to join the French Press Club for this sacred time!
