Dean Paula Marantz Cohen hosts students in her office for hour-long Dean’s Tea sessions. No sign-ups or RSVPs required. Come when you can. Pour yourself a cup of tea. Find a seat on the couch or the floor of Dean Cohen’s office and engage in intellectual conversation on a particular topic: Past themes have included: bridging the humanities and sciences; rankings and education; branding yourself; and binge-watching TV.
"Dean's Teas are a coping mechanism for the stresses in our lives, as is engaging in meaningful conversation.”
“I find it not only a great opportunity for students to share opinions and engage in an intellectual and lively conversation but also a place that nurtures critical thinking and a thirst for knowledge."
“I believe conversation is the best way to generate ideas because it offers perspective, and students who willingly go to such events tend to be the most open to new ideas and willing to contribute new ones. Dean Cohen loves to engage us about Drexel policies and proposals for improving the Honors College. You never know what sort of ideas spring out of a room with a handful of bright minds."
