The Common Cup

Cultivating a Culture of Belonging

Undergrads, graduate students, and professionals alike use this space to study, meet, work, and relax. Whether you are stopping in briefly or settling in to study for hours, we're glad you're here. Find out about our updated mission and how we plan on accomplishing it by checking out our "Who We Are" section.

Who We Are

We have a huge transient community and understand it's hard to show support and love from afar. We now offer eGift Cards to help with this. This is all done through Square Register and is emailed immediately upon purchase.

Crafting Great Experiences

We aim to create an excellent experience for each customer and we believe you deserve our best. While each item we serve has been prepared with care and patience, the ingredients play a major role in the final product.

We source our ingredients from local businesses providing high quality products, like Hyperion coffee and TeaHaus tea.

Artist Statement: Elisa Schulz

Welcome to my art show! My name is Elisa Schulz. I was born and raised in Southern Brazil and immigrated to the United States 26 years ago when my husband and I got married. We live in Dexter, Michigan with our youngest daughter and two cats.

Photography has always been a part of my life, but it took a more prominent role once I learned to use a DSL camera. In 2014 | started my portrait and event photography business, but even when I'm not photographing clients, I tend to carry my camera (or at least my iPhone) everywhere I go. I strive to intentionally see what's around me, and I love to document not only the beauty of God's creation and the wonders of human ingenuity, but also the extraordinary details of everyday life.

The title of the exhibit comes from the hymn that says: "All things bright and beautiful, / all creatures great and small, / all things wise and wonderful, / the Lord God made them all." I like to think of myself as someone who photographs all things bright and beautiful, using the filter of gratitude for God's abundant blessings.

The present collection is meant to intrigue you and perhaps help you look at things in a new way. Ultimately, I hope that these photographs will open your eyes to the artistry of God's creation. To Him be the glory!
