Vanessa refers to The Stamp as the "Campus Living Room". She associates the comfortable and area-convenient structure to be a way for students to work efficiently between classes and in meetings in a safe environment.
Geena appreciates The Stamp because of its invitation of diverse perspectives. Being an employee at the Stamp Art Gallery, she enjoys the various artists who convey important and pressing social issues through their work, thus creating important conversation that all can engage in.
Simone enjoys the relaxing environment that The Stamp provides. After a long academic day, she results to The Stamp as a way to catch up with friends an even partaking in the various (and tasty) food options such as Panda Express.
Phil ties his passion of art and creativity into the great networking opportunities that The Stamp provides. His occupation as a Potter in the Arts and Learning Center for four years has helped showcase him in various places in Maryland and Washington, D.C. Here, he demonstrates that The Stamp is a place where work, creativity and the feel of the “Home-court advantage” helps make solidarity in careers!
Lorenz pinpoints the importance of The Stamp as a commuter student by stating he appreciates the bus locations to take him directly to and from his off-campus housing. He uses The Stamp as the center of his campus life; being an employee in the Student Organization Research Center, he is never too far from where he can enjoy meeting with friends for lunch, and even getting work done.
What excites Natasha about The Stamp is the feeling of home and skill building opportunities for students. The financial assistance of Capital One Bank, leadership and services opportunities and everyday ritual of eating Chick-fil-A, she shows The Stamp allows you to mix work and play by even watching free movies!

Free Coffee Thursday: Cups
posted on March 09, 2016
[Update] Graduate Student Life has acquired a limited amount of cups. If we have them, they will be available to you. However, students are generally expected to still bring their own mugs. GSL staff cannot provide more cups when asked- if they are available, they will be located next to the coffee dispensers.
[Original Post] Due to increased consumption during the fall semester, Graduate Student Life has had to cut back on supplies for Free Coffee Thursday. We can still bring you hot steamy delicious coffee and tea, but please be sure to bring your own cup! We will only provide cups for the first Free Coffee Thursday on 1/28/16. Every following Thursday will require guests to bring your own cup/mug.
