For romantic reasons, and for reasons unknown to anyone.

Going for coffee


‘Going for coffee’ can sometimes happen seven or eight times per day depending on the lecture schedule.

It may not actually include coffee, but it definitely includes sitting around the college coffee shop.

There’s no getting around it.  Noodles are a staple of the college diet.
