NOVEMBER "Bring your cup to the café" Challenge


The Hatfield Marine Science Center’s Green Team invites you bring your own reusable beverage container to the new café in the Marine Studies Building. Not only is Ultralife happy to fill your reusable container, they will even give you a 25 cent discount on your beverage!

Help this become a community-wide practice. Post inspiring and celebratory photos of Hatfielders using their reusable mugs at the café during the month of November. #HatfieldEcoChallenge


Need a Cup?

Great news! The Hatfield Student Organization sells 15 oz. ceramic mugs for $10 each. What a perfect vessel from which to drink a beverage purchased at the MSB café! If you are interested in purchasing a mug contact to arrange a pick-up.
