First Year Experience

Out to Lunch Program

Getting to know faculty is an important part of the college experience and what better way to get to know someone than over food? We created Out to Lunch to promote student and faculty interaction outside of the classroom. Follow the directions below to participate in Out to Lunch!

Out to Lunch Program

The first year of college is an essential time for students to become comfortable with their surroundings. New Student and Family Programs offers the Out to Lunch Program to help students in their transition to and through college. Our faculty members love getting to know their students better, so we've created a fun way to facilitate faculty-student interaction.

Step One

Invite a faculty member to lunch (or breakfast or dinner) in Riverside Commons by asking them before or after class, calling their office, or sending them an email.

Step Two

We cover the cost of the faculty member's meal and students pay for their own meal with their meal plan, Falcon Dollars, cash, or credit. 

Step Three

Enjoy a meal in Riverside Commons with the faculty member. Consider talking about the following subjects:

  • A topic discussed in class
  • An upcoming assignment
  • How the professor's academic career developed
  • Why the professor came to UWRF
  • What the professor enjoys about teaching
  • Your career goals and aspirations
  • Hobbies, sports, fine arts, or anything else that interests you

Step Four

Give us your feedback! Send us an email and tell us about your experience.

Step Five

New students can pick up Out to Lunch tickets in the Admissions & New Student and Family Programs Office in South Hall.
