Weekly Coffee Breaks
Take a coffee break with us! Join us for a weekly video conference call every Monday from May 4, 2020 through August 3, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. central time.
Each week, a representative from a LU office will give a few updates and we will talk.
Format: The first 10-15 minutes will be led by topic guest. Then there will be a Q&A for attendees to ask questions about the weekly topic for up to 15 minutes. Each webinar will be recorded and added to this webpage to keep you updated in case you missed it.

Pick and choose which ones you would like to attend based on guest speakers and topics for the week! See the Dates & Times section below for each guest speaker and topic information.
Lindenwood University students do so much. They usually have a full class schedule, work multiple jobs or internships, volunteer, and get involved on campus. These students go on to become Lindenwood alumni who are experts in their field and make an impact in the world. If you are one of those alumni that would like to share your knowledge with the alumni community, please reach out to the Office of Alumni Relations at firstname.lastname@example.org. There are opportunities to host webinars to our alumni and share your expertise, all of which will be recorded and shared here.
