Out 2 Lunch Logo

Out 2 Lunch is a program that encourages students to engage with their faculty members outside of class and over casual conversation, which maximizes the UA community. In partnership with Bama Dining, first-year students can use their meal plan towards taking a faculty member out to lunch with the goal of increasing informal interaction and therefore improving their transition to The University of Alabama.

The Out 2 Lunch Experience

  1. Student invites his/her faculty or staff member to lunch, coffee, etc.
  2. The pair chooses an on-campus dining facility that accepts meal swipes or Dining Dollars to enjoy a meal and engage in dialogue.
  3. Student uses guest meal or dining dollars to cover the faculty or staff member’s meal.
  4. Student and faculty or staff member enjoy dialogue.
  5. Student completes the assessment.
  6. If faculty or staff member has feedback of the experience, email fye@ua.edu.
