“Meet and Eat” Spring 2013 - Have you always wanted to get to know other members of the campus community? Would you enjoy being treated to lunch? The office of the Provost will be sponsoring lunches for small groups that include a combination of KU students, faculty and staff. (Dr. Vargas will not be in attendance at these lunches.) The goal is that these individuals will get to know one another and, in turn, become more knowledgeable about the members of our campus family. So that there is no financial strain on the individuals, the group will be given a money in the form of a Paw Pass to be used at a venue on campus.
Are you available at noon on a Tuesday or Thursday? Or at 11 a.m. on a Monday, Wednesday or Friday? These are times that are most likely that a group of 3-4 people would be able to get a table in the Cub Cafe or Academic Forum. Sign up on KUnited by visiting http://kunited.kutztown.edu and clicking on "Meet and Eat!" at the top of the page. Please use your full KU email address to log in, and your email password. You will be contacted with the information of the others you will be eating with so you can schedule your lunch. Thank you for your participation!
