Eureka Students

Welcome back students!

You’re invited!

Come to the grand opening of the Undergrounds Charity Coffee House in Ben Major from 8:00 to 11:00pm. Coffee and tea will be served.​ Follow the Undergrounds on Facebook and by using the hashtag #ECUndergrounds.

Undergrounds coffee

Undergrounds is an initiative started by ​Student Senate to renovate the basement of Ben Major and provide a way for students to volunteer their time while also raising money for charities. Undergrounds has no paid employees, and a significant portion of the proceeds from the sales of ethically purchased coffee and tea go directly to charity organizations. Additionally, fine and performing arts exhibits and performances will be regularly showcased in the coffee house.

For more information, please contact Ella Stewart, Undergrounds Management chairperson or any Student Senator.
