MFPL Happy Hours are our social get-togethers here on campus. Every 6 – 8 weeks a different group organizes this event on a Thursday evening which invites all people at MFPL to socialize, enjoy food, drinks, dance, and simply have fun. Lately it has become popular to give the MFPL Happy Hour a theme. So we’ve had themes like “Vikings”, “Show your Nation”, “Pirates”, “Chop Stick Challenge”, “Bad Teiste”. It’s all in the initiative of the organizing group(s). (read more)
