Death Cafe

Death Cafe

Following the success of our spring event, the Thanatology Department hosted our second Death Café of 2017 on October 15th. Forty-five students, alumni, faculty, and community members came together to eat dessert, drink tea, and discuss death in a relaxed and supportive environment. Among us were educators, artists, writers, nurses, retirees, and even a funeral director. Small group discussions were lively but intimate enough that people felt comfortable discussing their fears and feelings about death and dying. Despite the subject matter, there was plenty of laughter and many of our guests left saying how much fun they had and asking when the next event would be. We hope you’ll join us for our next Death Café in spring of 2018!
