Barker Cafe is an inviting place for the Arts and Humanities community, where students and faculty members can meet to talk about ideas and artistic initiatives, to work together, sip a great cup of coffee, and share in two of the great pleasures of life: collegial conversation and participating in artistic and performance events.
