Virtual Coffee Hours FAQ

Q: How does virtual coffee taste like?
A: Pixels???

Q: Do you have lactose-free option?

A: Still pixels and as far as we know they are lactose-free. *Please tell us other digital allergies to provide you a better and safer virtual coffee.

Q: Can I join if I'm not a graduate student?

A: Only by special request. Write in to us :) 

Q: How long will the sessions be?

A: An hour! Feel free to stay beyond the hour and chill with us! 

Q: What to expect?
A: Friends and prospective friends hanging out! And a pixel coffee from our baristas, of course

Q: Hey, whats with the time? 

A: We want to be able to meet our friends across continents and the best way to do it is usually around UTC2PM, which is morning for the Americas, afternoon for EMEA, and night for Asia Pacific. Morning coffee, afternoon coffee, and... decaf coffee/coffee liquor(?) Coffee liquor is still coffee - Bailey, Kahlua, Tiramisu liquor, Irish coffee, etc. Though, you don't have to restrict yourself to bean juice - leaf juice works too. Whatever that floats your boat haha!

Q: Can I help design the space? Its kind of ugly...
A: You're more than welcomed to, contact us in anyway an we'll hook you up with editor rights.

Q: I have suggestions to make, where do I put them?
A: This form, or any other contact method to SiM.

Q: What if the platform lags and crashes?
A: That is my fear too, but who knows if we don't ever try? We're people of science, my friend. Its the experimental method!

Q: Can we log onto the space after hours?

A: Yes, sure! Treat it like a virtual office space and interact with your virtual colleagues!
