First-Year Programs

Be My Guest

Invite your faculty member for a free lunch or coffee break! 

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?

Be My Guest is intended to cultivate student-faculty interaction and extend learning outside the classroom. To participate, simply invite your professor and 1-3 classmates.  Select what, when, and where.  Register and enjoy!
