Lunch by the Dozen is a chance for new students to meet and eat with their professors.
New students have the opportunity to participate in a series of lunches and dinners throughout the year with faculty who teach larger, mostly freshmen, classes. All freshmen students in the class receive an e-mail invitation to come and sign up for a meal with a faculty member and only eleven other classmates. Faculty who teach these introductory classes such as chemistry, psychology, physics, history, math and art history will host the lunches in the First Year Center and dinners on the South 40.
Students who participated last year tell us that they appreciated the opportunity to get to know their professor in a setting that is a little less intimidating than office hours and a lot more conducive to conversation than the classroom. Professors tell us that they enjoy the opportunity for a more relaxed setting for dialogue with students.
