Dinner with 12 Strangers

Dinner with 12 Strangers

In February, University Advancement sponsored its first annual Dinner with 12 Strangers program.

Dinner with 12 Strangers involves more than just a meal: alumni in the Scranton area open their homes to host students for small dinner parties, or host the students at a local restaurant. Now, there’s no such thing as being too far away from Scranton to connect with other alumni! Alumni also hosted regional dinners in their hometown for classmates in their area.

This type of program has worked well for other schools, according to Kristi Cordier ’09, class affinity coordinator for Alumni Relations, who introduced the program this year. More than 15 alumni hosted regional dinners, and 15 local alumni hosted current students in their homes.

The goal of Dinner with 12 Strangers is to offer current students a great opportunity to get a feel for the extended Scranton family. It brings together students, alumni, faculty and staff for a series of small dinner parties as a way to strengthen an already strong Scranton community. The program provides an opportunity for a great evening of socializing and networking!

For more information, please contact Kristi Cordier’ 09 at kristin.cordier@scranton.edu or check out scranton.edu/dinnerwith12strangers.

The event promises to become a new Scranton tradition for our Alumni Society and current students.
