Looking for social opportunities for students?


Let’s Do Lunch

Does your student want to meet up with friends at lunch? Do they need help with an assignment or need to work on a group project? Or do they just want to meet new people? Let’s Do Lunch! We open a Zoom during lunchtime every Monday-Friday to allow students to meet up with friends and classmates at lunch. They can stay in the main room to chat or get help on an assignment. Or they can move to a Breakout room with friends or other students with common interests. We’d love for them to bring their lunch and stop in to check it out!
