Go Underground!

the Underground Café, a trendy coffee shop and favorite hang-out place for both students and faculty. Once a dilapidated storage shed, the Underground owes its radical transformation to the vision and hard work of the Class of 2000. Students gather in the Underground to enjoy beverages ranging from smoothies, frappes, and juices to a wide variety of both hot and cold coffees and teas. The Underground provides a comfortable atmosphere for students to come together, play games, work on group projects, do homework, or just relax and enjoy conversation.

Bean Books
The Student Leadership Council and the Underground Café have partnered to make parents a special offer. Bean Books function like a limited line of credit in the Café, and are sold at discounted prices to give “more for your buck”.
