At the same time, the corners organize events, presentations, workshops, and dialogues with U.S. experts in areas that include educational advising, English language, health, sciences, technology, environment, economics, democracy, and civil society. It is also a meeting place for US alumni, host to conversation and study groups, and great place to hang out while away an hour or two! 

Membership is free and open to the general public.
