It is a tradition in the Math Department to have a Daily Tea every afternoon from 3:00-3:30pm. A variety of refreshments are served including cookies, fruits, cakes, vegetables, cheese, sweets, and pastries as well as juice, coffee, and tea. (Of course we don't serve all those things at one Tea!) The Daily Tea provides a nice informal afternoon break that gives everyone the chance get out of their offices and chat with colleagues. It also serves as a good lead-in to the 3:15 talks.
We ask one or two people to sponsor the Daily Tea for each week of the semester. Sponsoring involves getting the refreshments, setting them out at 3:00, and then cleaning up at 3:30 (no heavy-duty cleaning is required). If you are busy at either of those times, with advanced notice, the staff may be available to assist. The department will reimburse expenses up to a certain, though generous, amount.
For more details, see the Tea Letter. We ask all grads, post-docs, visitors, and faculty to please sign up for the coming semester. Check out the Daily Tea schedule below and send an email with your choice of week to the Tea Chairperson.
Thank you in advance,
