Be My Guest

Invite your professor for a free lunch to get to know more about them.    Do they have a hobby?  Why teaching?  What is their favorite restaurant on Fort Street Mall? Or do they prefer the Dining Commons?  First-Year Programs sponsors lunches and coffee breaks for students and faculty to connect outside the classroom. Students enrolled in and faculty teaching lower division courses (1000 and 2000 levels) are eligible to participate. For more information, please visit
