The subject of this Philosophy and Coffee is “what is freedom and why is it important?”. This will provide students with a space to discuss this topic and consider how various forms of freedom affect them.

“Philosophy and Coffee was created to generate interest in the club of students who teach students and to provide students with an opportunity to examine philosophical topics,” Roehrich said.

He also talked about what Students Teaching Students is all about and why they decided to organize this event.

“The event is organized by the club of students who teach students,” Roehrich said. “This organization is made up of WKU students who want to teach philosophy to others.”
