Attention Undergraduates!

You are invited to participate in a program, sponsored by the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs and Thurgood Marshall College, designed to increase interactions between UC San Diego students and faculty or graduate Teaching Assistants outside of the classroom. The Dine-with-a-Prof Program will help to foster informal, out-of-classroom interactions between YOU and your professors! It also gives you the opportunity to experience a professional dining atmosphere at the UC San Diego Faculty Club or the more casual setting of Zanzibar @ the Loft.

Take advantage of this wonderful opportunity! 140 meal vouchers will be sponsored, on first-come first-serve bases, one voucher per student per quarter. This program runs from October until the last day of intruction at the end of Spring Quarter.

How does it work?

Before obtaining your FREE meal card, please make sure you have the following information:

  • The full name and email address of the faculty member or teaching assistant you will be taking to lunch.
  • The week number and quarter that the lunch will be held.
  • Please make sure to invite your professor or TA to lunch PRIOR to obtaining the meal card.

Obtain a meal card for the program at the Thurgood Marshall College Dean of Student Affairs Office, northeast wing of TMC Admin Bldg.

The meal card can be redeemed only by the faculty member with the student as a guest. If another student will like to join your lunch, that student will need to pick up a meal voucher at her/his college of registration.

Contact the Marshall College Student Affairs office at  (858) 534-4390 for more information.

And don't forget Coffee-with-a-Prof!

The rules are the same but instead of lunch, you get to treat your professor or graduate Teaching Assistant to coffee at one of these locations:

  • The Art of Espresso (Mandeville Center)
  • Perks (UCSD Bookstore)
  • Cups Outdoor Cafe (Warren College/Jacobs School of Engineering Courtyard)
  • Fairbanks Coffee Cart (Center Hall, Warren Mall, Social Science, Revelle Plaza)

Your Coffee with a Professor vouchers will provide for one medium-sized beverage of your choice, compliments of Thurgood Marshall College Dean of Student Affairs Office; two vouchers per student per quarter. Sign up today!

**Please note: Dine-with-a-Prof and Coffee-with-a-Prof vouchers MUST be picked up at the TMC Admin Building at least one week before the scheduled date agreed upon between the student and faculty member or graduate teaching assistant.
