WestM tearoom and teagarden
Current hours are 9am-2pm Mon – Wed.
An experiment in campus community for students, faculty, staff, and families. It’s simply a chill environment great for studying, pausing, or simply hanging out. We will have hot water, tea, hot chocolate, cider. What we really need is you and your good energy. While we will accept donations, everything is FREE. Really!
Currently open to the public Monday-Wednesday 9am-2pm. We need volunteer hosts and can expand hours as you step up. Details below.
During Covid times we have very limited indoor seating BUT we have opened up our new outdoor tea garden complete with tables, umbrellas, and wifi. All OSU campus and Benton County Covid precautions are to be followed at all times including masking, social distancing, and group size limitations.
