Jitters is a coffeehouse for students, by students. In early 1997 a few creative people started to show interest and support for creating a coffeehouse in their building. These individuals all saw the potential for Jitters to help create a lasting, strong, and vital sense of community. It would soon become a place for the campus’ artists, poets, authors, musicians, actors, comedians, dancers and other assorted folks to enjoy a cup of joe and a good time.
We offers open mic nights, live band performances, game nights, dances, acoustic music, the occasional smoothie night, and other assorted programs. Email Brian Turner if you or your band would like to set up a show. Interested in using Jitters for your Student Org or Department?
