Being an undergrad often means a steady diet of pizza and cramming for exams. This spring, you can offer undergraduates a little something more satisfying.
You don't have to host a formal party to have Dinner with a Few Good Spartans. It can be as relaxed or as formal as you would like. Here, Renwick Pridgeon, left, and Lamar Mack learn the finer points of etiquette at a UNCG Career Services event.
The UNCG Alumni Association and the Student Alumni Ambassadors are launching Dinner with a Few Good Spartans, a new program in which alumni host small dinner parties for students on one night – Tuesday, April 8. Alumni from all professions are invited to interact with students, offering academic and career guidance in a friendly environment.
Hosts of a Dinner with a Few Good Spartans meal provide food, hospitality and mentoring to a group of four or more students. Alumni can provide a home-cooked or catered meal at their home or host a dinner at a local restaurant. The location doesn't matter. It's the interaction that's the key.
This program is modeled after the Dinners for 12 Strangers program begun at The University of California at Los Angeles in the late 1960s.
If you live in the Guilford County area and are interested in hosting a meal, you can register online at www.uncg.edu/ala/spartandinner.html. Or, for more information, contact Cindy Dew at (336) 256-2010 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
