Dinner for Six

dinner-for-six
Dinner for Six is an opportunity for University of Lethbridge students to connect with alumni and community members through engaging conversation and a delicious meal. Between November 18 and 27, 2019, hosts will provide a dinner for students, sharing either a home-cooked, catered or purchased meal.

For students, this is an opportunity to have conversations with those who have been in their shoes. For alumni and community members, this is a way to give back in a meaningful way. For everyone involved, Dinner for Six provides the opportunity to connect between delicious bites.

Dinner for Six is organized and coordinated by the Philanthropy, Advancement, Community and Traditions club (PACT), and supported by the Alumni Relations office. Learn more about PACT here.  This initiative was inspired by UCLA’s Dinner for 12 Strangers program.

Tips and guidelines for attending a dinner 

  • Think of questions you might want to ask your alumni host. Remember: they were once uLethbridge students themselves, and they might have some interesting insights or stories to share with you! 
  • Nervous about attending a dinner on your own? Invite a friend to sign up with you! 
  • Make note of any food restrictions/allergies that you have when signing up. Please register for a dinner night that can accommodate the dietary restrictions you have.
