Dinner with 12 Strangers

Dinner with 12 Strangers

Dinner with 12 Strangers is a new tradition being brought to The University of Scranton! The idea is simple: students enjoy dinner that is hosted by alumni, faculty and staff. They share a good meal, have insightful conversations, have the opportunity to network and find out what life after college is really like.

It's more than just a meal... 

Dinner with 12 Strangers aims to build and strengthen The University of Scranton community as it provides the students with the opportunity to network with Scranton alumni and interact with professors and staff outside of the classroom. The program provides an opportunity for a great evening of socializing and networking, where students find out how to stay involved with and connected to Scranton after they graduate.

Come to dinner with 12 strangers and leave with 11 new friends!

    Host participation is limited to the Scranton area to minimize transportation challenges for students. 

    Scranton alumni, faculty and staff in the Scranton area open their homes to students for small dinner parties, or host the students at a local restaurant, bringing these “strangers" together in a warm, friendly environment for good food, conversation, and camaraderie.

    Host a dinner, at no cost to your guests, for approximately 12 students and a few faculty and/or staff members. These gatherings can be formal or informal, because as the host, you get to decide! This dinner can take place in your home or at a local restaurant.

    To cut costs, consider co-hosting with a group of friends from your class! A co-host typically helps with meal expenses and preparation, interaction with guests and clean-up.
