When residence hall students invite a faculty member to eat with them at one of the many residence hall venues, University Housing will pay for the faculty member's meal. This is a great opportunity to get to know a faculty member outside the classroom, talk about class work, or explore career opportunities.

Students are sometimes reluctant or shy about doing this. However faculty generally enjoy the opportunity to have a meal with a student. It may feel less awkward if two or three residence hall students collectively invite a professor to a meal.

"I enjoy eating in the residence halls with students. The conversation is lively and students seem to appreciate the effort to meet them on their home ground. The food is really good."

- Daniel Close,
Associate Professor and Director of the Family and Human Services Program in the College of Education.
