The Wednesday lunch hour is a fantastic program offered by Warner every week, and it’s a real treat for anyone interested in learning a little something and getting a free lunch at the same time! For those of you who haven’t had the chance to stop by yet, or if you haven’t heard about it, it’s a very casual event open to the Warner community and it is completely free! You show up to Warner ready to eat, grab some tasty food, and head into the Gendrich-Rusling room (LeChase 215) for a guest presentation. Each week Warner offers a different menu and a different presenter, so these talks are a must!
This past semester, some of the talks have included topics such as studying abroad, undocumented students, trauma informed care, trends in academic libraries, an update on East High, and digital conversion in K-12! All have been very informative and interesting topics to hear about while on a lunch break. There has also been some really delicious food available, including Caribbean food, Stromboli, Moe’s, pizza, salads, wraps, sandwiches, and a boat load of different kinds of cookies. Though the food is ordered from all different places around Rochester, you can assume it is going to be a great lunch.
Last semester, I had the opportunity to attend a lunch talk for speakers Bryan Gopaul and Nate Harris. As their topic was hazing, they brought in a panel of speakers from all around the university to help discuss and answer questions on hazing in universities, an occurrence which stems from a multitude of groups and organizations, not only from Greek life organizations as one might think.
These lunch talks are a great way to enjoy a good meal and network with new people in our community. They happen (almost) every Wednesday from 12-1 PM. For more information on the upcoming lunch talks be sure to check out our Warner Admissions Facebook page and the Warner News website; I hope to see you there!
That’s all for now,
