Take a Student to Lunch, supported by the Office of the Provost and Vice President for Student Life, continues to be an outstanding opportunity for outside-the-classroom Student-Educator connections.

The program allows Faculty or Staff members to invite students for a meal, coffee, or snack and use the time to get to know each other better and/or to discuss projects, events or activities.

Each faculty/staff member may use the program with up to five students each Fall and Spring semester, and with up to two students each Winter term.

Here is how it works

No advance planning needed: simply present your IDs to the cashier at a participating dining location and let them know you are “taking a student to lunch.” There is no charge for the meal for student or faculty/staff member.
