What is Food For Thought?Food For Thought logo

Food for Thought helps you invite one of your faculty to participate in a casual one-to-one conversation that builds relationships and ultimately leads to your academic success.  Schedule lunch whenever is convenient for you!  Open to all on-campus residents. In partnership with Carolina Dining Services, get together for a free meal at Top of Lenoir or Chase Dining at Rams Head. The intent is to facilitate casual one-on-one conversations between faculty and students that build relationships and ultimately lead to student academic success. The program will be open May 3, 2020.
