First Year Experience

Out to Lunch

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.

How to do Out to Lunch:

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 e-mail.

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.

Step Four

Give us your feedback! Send us an e-mail and tell us about your experience.

Step Five

New students receive their first Out to Lunch ticket during WOW and can pick up additional tickets in the New Student and Family Programs office in South Hall.
