Food For Thought

Connect with your professor outside the classroom!

The Food for Thought Program provides undergraduate students an opportunity to discuss class work, career aspirations, or just learn more about your faculty mentors.

Even without a meal plan. Each Semester, students can take one faculty member to a meal for free. Simply swipe your card to pay for the meal and bring a meal ticket for the faculty member.

This option is available in the Little Building dining hall. You receive two meals (you and your faculty guest) for this program a semester.

Regardless of whether you have a meal plan, two additional meals will available to you and accessible through your student ID. When you bring a faculty member to lunch, you’ll swipe your ID twice and then the faculty swipes their ID as well.

Please download this flyer for an invitation and conversation starters.
