Excelsior Coffee Break

We’re setting up what could be the world’s largest virtual afternoon coffee break! Join us for an attempt to set a Guinness World Record. As we celebrate Excelsior College’s Charter Day in our 51st year, we’d like to bring together the people who’ve made this journey possible – students, alumni, faculty and staff. This virtual coffee break is an opportunity to celebrate each other, while making an irreverent attempt to enter the record books.

Our hope is to have as many of our students, alumni, faculty, and staff join a scheduled Zoom coffee break. If you are unable to join one of the sessions, you can send a photo of yourself enjoying a break with your work-appropriate beverage of choice.

Suggestions for participating:

– If you’d like to, show some Excelsior pride by wearing purple or an Excelsior shirt, and/or use your Excelsior mug.

– Encourage others to participate. The more, the merrier – and the better our odds of making it into the record books!

– If you are unable to join one of the Zoom rooms, take a photo of yourself (maybe with your pet, friend, co-worker, significant other) enjoying a coffee break, and send it to

Charter Day commemorates the New York State Board of Regents granting Regents College – the forerunner of Excelsior College – a charter to operate as an independent, nonprofit institution.
