Common Grounds: Coffee & Conversation at UIC Liautaud

To kick off the start of another great school year, the UIC Liautaud Graduate School of Business will host several coffee and conversation networking events in Douglas Hall during the first two weeks of classes.

UIC Liautaud students will have the opportunity to network at our Common Grounds events with staff, other students and faculty members from a variety of our graduate programs.

Each Common Grounds event is hosted by a different UIC Liautaud student organization, so stop by and mingle with our groups to learn more about these student run organizations.

All events take place on the second floor of Douglas Hall, in the foyer space in front of the café.
