The Coffee House was founded in 1967 by the late Rev. Alan Davis of Lutheran Campus Ministry and Rev. Chuck Witt and Ms. Agnes Zeidler of Redeemer Lutheran Church as an outreach to the surrounding community including Marquette University. Over the years they have hosted a variety of programming including films, jazz, poetry, dances, a clown troupe and folk and acoustic music.
To this day, The Coffee House is geared towards students of Marquette and is fully operated by volunteers. Many of the students on campus are not fully aware of this facility that is open for their use, whether if it is to relax, do homework, or listen to music. This ad campaign was to advertise towards college students on campus to let them know that The Coffee House was available at their exposure.
